Change display of result's template with Javascript

I want to change currency of the results when I click on a radio button. When I try to change the display with JS, nothing happened.

        container: '#infinitehits-container-d',
        showMoreLabel: "Plus de résultats",
        templates: {
            item: function (item) {
                return '<a class="link-item" href="/demo/' + item.cars_getroute + '">' +
                    '<div class="img__container">' +
                    '<img class="infinitehits__img" src="' + item.img_url + '">' +
                    '</div>' +
                    '<div class="left-hit__content">' +
                    '<div class="hit__marque">' + item.marque + '</div>' +
                    '</div>' +
                    '<div class="right-hit__content">' +
                    '<div class="cote_actual_eu" id="cote-actual-eu">' + item.cote_actual.cote_actual_eu.toLocaleString('fr-FR', { style: 'currency', currency: 'EUR', minimumFractionDigits: 0, maximumFractionDigits: 0 }) + '</div>' +
                    '<div class="cote_actual_usd" id="cote-actual-usd" style="display:none">' + item.cote_actual.cote_actual_usd.toLocaleString('en-US', { style: 'currency', currency: 'USD', minimumFractionDigits: 0, maximumFractionDigits: 0 }) + '</div>' +
                    '</div>' +
            return item;

My HTML with the radio buttons:

<div class="currency__dropdown--body">
<div class="currency__euro">
    <img src="/assets/images/icons/euro.png" alt="Euro sign">
    <label for="euro">Euro
        <input type="radio" name="currency" value="euro" id="euro-radio" class="euro_radio" checked="checked">
<div class="currency__dollar">
    <img src="/assets/images/icons/dollar.png" alt="Dollar sign">
    <label for="dollar">Dollar
        <input type="radio" name="currency" id="dollar-radio" class="dollar_radio" name="dollar">

And the JS code to change the display:
// Radio button currency
let radioButtonEu = document.querySelector(".euro_radio");
let radioButtonUsd = document.querySelector(".dollar_radio");
//Search cote actual
let coteActualSearchEu = document.querySelectorAll(".cote_actual_eu")
let coteActualSearchUsd = document.querySelectorAll(".cote_actual_usd")

if (radioButtonEu || radioButtonUsd) {
    radioButtonEu.addEventListener("click", currencyEu);
    radioButtonUsd.addEventListener("click", currencyUsd);
    if (radioButtonUsd.checked = true) {
        function currencyUsd() {
        if (coteActualSearchUsd) {
            coteActualSearchEu.forEach(y => = "none");
            coteActualSearchUsd.forEach(y => = "block");

It doesn’t work when I do that, is it possible to change the display like this in InstantSearch ?

Hi @qbolgi
It’s not clear to be how you have linked your radio buttons to your Hit dom. Could you reproduce your code in this boilerplate?

Can’t wait to help!

I have difficulties to translate this in Codebox. But I’ll try to be more clear. Is it possible to change the style (display in this case) like I did it in my example ? Or have I to modify it in a Helper ?

Hi there,

Sorry, we are still not able to fully understand what you are trying to do. It would be a lot clearer for us if you could make a reproducible example pointing at what element you would like to change, in a codeSandbox. Thanks in advance!

I tried to edit the codebox, I’d like to be able to check the dollar currency. In this case, the price will be in dollar and the price in euro will be hidden (with a display none).
But it doesn’t work.

Hey @qbolgi - fellow Algolia user here. I recently built something along the same lines, so let’s see if I can’t get you steered in the right direction.

The fundamental issue is you’re defining your price targets upon page load (e.g. coteActualSearchEu). The hits list does not yet exist in the DOM.

Luckily, Algolia provides a render event for us.

// Basic example

search.on('render', () => {
  let coteActualSearchEu = document.querySelectorAll('.hit-price-euro');
  console.log(coteActualSearchEu); // NodeList is now populated

Hopefully this sets you on the right path.


I’m a little late but thank you very much, I just tried it and it worked ! Thank you Chad !
