The following script works in IE but in Firefox errors with the msg
Enumerator is not defined.
<html>
<head>
<meta name="vs_defaultClientScript" content="JavaScript">
<script language="javascript">
<!--
function Recalc(){
var objHidden;
var objControl;
var objLabel;
var n = 0;
var sName;
var e = new Enumerator(document.getElementsByName("txt"));
while(!e.atEnd()){
alert(e.item().value);
e.moveNext();
}
};

//-->
</script>
<script id="clientEventHandlersJS" language="javascript">
<!--

function Button1_onclick() {
return Recalc();
}

//-->
</script>
</head>
<body>
<form>
<INPUT id="Text5" type="text" name="txt">
<INPUT id="Text4" type="text" name="txt">
<INPUT id="Text2" type="text" name="txt">
<INPUT id="Text3" type="text" name="txt">

Where have you defined it?

Do I have to define Enumerator, isn't part of the javascript language?
I didn't define it for IE...

Enumerator is defined in Microsoft JScript (primarily to facilitate
interaction with other MS software, such as ADO), not in JavaScript.

<script language="javascript">
<script type="text/javascript">

var e = new Enumerator(document.getElementsByName("txt"));
while(!e.atEnd()){
alert(e.item().value);
e.moveNext();
}
While it would be possible to write an Enumerator implementation for
JavaScript, the following is easier and works in IE-based UAs, too:

var e = document.getElementsByName("txt");
for (var i = 0, len = e.length; i < len; i++)
{
alert(e[i].value);
}

};
I doubt there is a point in ending a FunctionStatement with a `;', besides
the fact that it is indeed a statement. It rather helps to confuse a
standalone FunctionStatement with a FunctionExpression in an assignment.

Nonsense.

Utter nonsense. The (X)HTML `script' element has no `id' attribute (by
default), nor would it be necessary here.
[...]
<INPUT id="Text1" type="text" name="txt">
type="text" is redundant, that is the default attribute value for this
element.
<INPUT id="Button1" type="button" value="Button" name="Button1"
language="javascript" onclick="return Button1_onclick()">


The (X)HTML `input' element has no `language' attribute (by default).
Again, the `id' attribute does not strike me as being necessary here.

Your indentation sucks.

If you mean (Netscape) JavaScript, then no.

IE uses (Microsoft) JScript.
