<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="ie=edge">
   <title>Show div and hide other div using JavaScript</title>
    function showhide() {
        if (document.getElementById('div_one').style.display == 'none') {
          document.getElementById('div_one').style.display = 'block';
          document.getElementById('div_two').style.display = 'none';
        else {
          document.getElementById('div_one').style.display = 'none';
          document.getElementById('div_two').style.display = 'block';
  <div id="div_one">Div 1</div>
  <div id="div_two" style="display:none ;">Div 2</div>
  <input id="Button" type="button" value="Click Me" onclick="showhide();" />
  1. First, we write <! DOCTYPE html> which we used as an instruction to the web browser about what version of HTML file is written in.
  2. Secondly, the <html> tag is used to indicate the beginning of an HTML document.
  3. As above now <head> tag is used to contain information about web page. In this tag a <title> tag is used which helps us to specify a webpage title. Both <head> and <title> tags are Paired tags. So, both have </head> and </title> ending tags respectively.
  4. Now, here before closing head, we write our script, you can use this or write this before closing body also.
  5. Now, inside body here we create two divisions with different id’s and with a button. On click on button our showhide() function runs. One thing to note here that our second div is not visible, because we use display none on that.
  6. Now, in script we create a show hide function and inside this function. We write here that if our first division is not display then it will display our first division and hides second one.
  7. But if first division is already display then it will not be displayed on click of button and then second displayed. This all is done with the help of if condition, you can see codes in our example.
  8. At last, the <body> and <html> tags are closed with </body> and </html> respectively.

Conclusion :-

At last in conclusion, here we can say that with the help of this article we able to show current div and hide other div by on click with the help of JavaScript.
