Hi all,

I am trying to run the following piece of code, but I am getting a javascript error "Object does not support property error!" and I am unable to understand what the problem might be.

There is a form called "updateForm" which I am trying to submit when i get the error. When I comment lines (1), (2), (3), the error does not get thrown. Please help me!!

Please let me know if you need any other information besides this.

Thanks,

Well first problem is document.all is IE only.

You should be using document.formName.elementName or
You should be using document.forms["elementName"] or
You should be using document.forms[0].elementName or
document.getElementById("elementID")

This is not specific enough, I wouldn't use it.

I agree. The [0] notation is rather old-fashioned and is fragile. Avoid it.

id values allows you to specifically target an item without ambiguity.
