    Hi All,

    I am trying to remove this design-time created CheckBox at run-time, client-side. I am able to remove the control in Chrome and FireFox, but IE8 is putting up a fight and I do not know why. 

    My Mark-Up:

    In my client-side onLoad function I check the combobox's value, and, if its value is PieChart, I attempt to hide some controls on the page from the user. Setting the checkbox's visibility property to Collapse, Hidden, etc.. doesn't do anything. The same with setting its height and width to 0 -- it is still visible. If I disable it, it becomes disabled. I am able to affect the controls on its left and right -- the RadDateTimePicker and the label both disappear in IE8 perfectly fine.

    Any suggestions on how to remove this finicky box would be appreciated.

    Hi Sean,

    The FormDecorator as a control decorates checkboxes by adding additional markup to the page. Being so hiding the decorated elements should also mean hiding this extra markup. Here is what you need to do:
    1. Get the reference to the decorating element - the id of this element is the value of a _rfddecoratedid attribute of the decorated element. This is the way to keep the connection between the two elements:
      var checkbox = $get('<%= CheckBox3.ClientID %>');
      var decoratingCheckbox = $get(checkbox.getAttribute("_rfddecoratedid"));
    2. Here comes the second tricky part. If you try to use display=none you may run into troubles as there is another CSS definition for display marked as !important. Therefore the better option would be to set the visibility to hidden:
      decoratingCheckbox.style.visibility = "hidden";

    Hope this will solve your issue with hiding decorated elements.
    Kind regards,
