InnerHTML horizontal row problem

InnerHTML horizontal row problem

InnerHTML horizontal row problem

I want to add a horizontal row after the user clicks on Completed. This javascript isn't working:

function myFunction() {
document.getElementById("green-hr").innerHTML = "<b>Completed</b><br /><hr />";

<b onclick="myFunction()" id="green-hr">Completed</b>

How to fix it?

RE: InnerHTML horizontal row problem

Are you getting any error? Use your browser's console to check for JS errors.

Your code works for me as is.

Your code will change the contents of of your <b> element to have a line break <br> and a horizontal rule <hr>

RE: InnerHTML horizontal row problem

I checked using regular HTML and my hr doesn't show up unless I add a line-height of 2 px so that was the problem.
