Can I hide/show a field based on another field's value without using the Behaviours Plugin?

I have JIRA 6.0.8 and have tried putting the following script in my custom field (free text unlimited) called "Test Script". I only want the field to display when the custom radio button field "Auto/Manual" is set to "Manual".

I entered the script in the description (Custom Fields / Edit / Description)

10900 is the Auto/Manual field, 11300 is the Test Script field

I am using Chrome. Haven't tried any other browsers.

<script type="text/javascript">

AJS.$(document).bind('dialogContentReady', function(event, dialog) {

field = document.getElementById('customfield_10900');

if (field) {

target = document.getElementById('customfield_11300').parentNode;

// Hide the Test Script field if Auto/Manual doesn't equal Manual

if (field.value != 'Manual')'none';

field.onchange=function() {

if (this.value == 'Manual') { = ";

target.value="Specify the name (or ID) of the test script where the sub-test is to be manually tested.";

} else {'none';

I have the similar issue. I cannot use Bheaviours plugin as it is not supported in JIRA 6.2.3.

Can someone help??
