So to be clear, the setting which identifies the div to show is made in 
the calling page.  The dashboards file is interpreting the setting to 
chose a div.  That makes plenty of sense.

As others pointed out you had a variable scope problem when defining 
"showDiv" in one place and using it in another.  As an addendum, If you 
have more than three divs available to choose from you should probably 
abstract out another layer to keep the code from going to spagetti, not 
that I have a problem with pasta when its on my plate instead of on my 
screen. :)
