Answer

Use JQuery. You need to set-up a click event on your button which will toggle the visibility of your wizard div.

$('#btn').click(function() {
    $('#wizard').toggle();
});

Refer to the JQuery website for more information.

This can also be done without JQuery. Using only standard JavaScript:

<script type="text/javascript">
   function toggle_visibility(id) {
       var e = document.getElementById(id);
       if(e.style.display == 'block')
          e.style.display = 'none';
       else
          e.style.display = 'block';
   }
</script>

Then add onclick="toggle_visibility('id_of_element_to_toggle');" to the button that is used to show and hide the div.
