A property available on all form elements, "type" returns the type of the calling form element. For SELECT, the two possible values are "select-one" or "select-multiple", depending on the type of selection list. The below code gives all SELECT elements in a particular form a CSS class of "selectclass":

<script type="text/javascript">
var form_element = document.getElementById('subscribe_form');
var vist = form_element.style;
if (vist.display=='' || vist.display=='none')
{
  vist.display = 'block';
}
else
{
  vist.display = 'none';
}
</script>
