object questions and difficulty

This a valid call:
document.myform.elements['myelement']
so is this:
document.forms[0].elements[1]
but not this:
document.forms[0].elements['myelement']

So, I have to iterate through the elements to find my field and make a
change to the element properties

myfield = "myelement";
for ( i=0; i<document.forms[1].elements.length; i++ )
{
if ( document.forms[1].elements[i].name == myfield )
{
document.forms[1].elements[i].class = "newstylesheetformat";
}
}
}

Why is the document.forms[1].elements[i].class property not accessible
using this method even though I specified it in the form?

If I wanted to iterate through the properties of the elements how would
I do this, like this?

for ( i=0; i<document.forms[1].elements.length; i++ )
{
for ( j=0; j<document.forms[1].elements[i].properties.length; i++ )

{
alert(document.forms[1].elements[i].properties.name);
}
}
}

Probably because it should be
document.forms[1].elements[i].className
The renaming is most likely because "class" is a restricted word or keyword
in many languages (including Javascript).

What do you mean by "properties"?

In Javascript, an object has properties. You iterate through (some of) them
with
for (var propName in objRef) { ... propName ... }

If you mean the attributes of the html tag, it ".attributs" that you need
to run through:
for ( j=0; j<document.forms[1].elements[i].attributes.length; i++ )

In what browser is that not valid? It works in Netscape and IE.

Lasse,

Thanks for helping. So you are saying everytime I want to change the class of
my input text item I have to do this?

for ( i=0; i<document.forms[1].elements.length; i++ )
{
if ( document.forms[1].elements[i].name == myfield )
{
for ( j=0; j<document.forms[1].elements[i].attributes.length; j++ )
{
if ( document.forms[1].elements[i].attributes[j].name == "class" )
{
document.forms[1].elements[i].attributes[j].value = "grey";
break;
}
}
}
}

That shouldn't be necessary.

document.forms[1].elements.namedItem(myfield).className = "gray";

If you insist on changing the HTML attribute value (some browsers don't
link className and the class Attribute element):

var elem = document.forms[1].elements.namedItem(myField);
elem.attributes.getNamedItem("class").value = "gray";
