Using dynamic names for objects in JS

3 New Member
Hi everyone!
I am an amateur JS programmer and I am stuck at a point. I would be glad if someone suggests me a solution. The problem goes like this...

I have a set of textboxes, who's names I am assigning as "Text1", "Text2" and so on with the help of a loop (using the setAttribute feature).

Now, at the time of submitting the information to the server, I need to validate the fields. If I'd kept the name say "Text", then I can access it as document.form_n ame.Text.value. In my case, how can i access the textbox object's value, whose name is dynamically changing ?

I even tried out this...
temp = Text + (looping variable);
document.form_n ame.temp.value. ...But it doesn't work..!! I am almost on the verge of completion of my project...I am stuck here...Could anyone please suggest me a solution..?

Thanks in advance.

hi ... you've nearly got it ;) use the following:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. document.form_name[temp].value
kind regards ...

ps: explaination is, that with the . you refer a property but you would refer a property named 'temp' ... so you have to use the array-like reference when refering a property that is variable

Hi, I've been trying to write a function to test whether one class is derived from another class. I am given only id's of the two classes. Therefore, direct use of template methods is not an option. Let's call the id of a class "cid" (for "class id"). The function signature should look like this: ******************************************

Hello We have a lot of C++ code. And we need to now create a library which can be used from C and C++. Given that we have a lot of C++ code using classes how can we 'hide' the fact that it is C++ from C compilers? Can we have a C header file which uses the functionality of the C++ files and compile this into a lib file?
