Hey, I have put the following code into a sharepoint aspx page. So that when I change the value in a drop down box it runs a function (in this case it displays "Works").

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

function getField(fieldType,fieldTitle) {
    var docTags = document.getElementsByTagName(fieldType);
    for (var i=0; i < docTags.length; i++) {
        if (docTags[i].title == fieldTitle) {
            return docTags[i]
        }
    }
}


function TestFunctionName() {

   alert("Works");

} 

getField('Select','DropDownBoxName').onchange = function() {TestFunctionName()};

</script>

What I'd like to be able to do aswell is when a check box is changed or clicked on the same thing happens. I dont seem to be able to achieve it though. I've change the line...

getField('Select','DropDownBoxName').onchange = function() {TestFunctionName()};

to...

getField('Input','CheckBoxName').onchange = function() {TestFunctionName()};

and

getField('Input','CheckBoxName').onclick = function() {TestFunctionName()};


Please could somebody help?

Many Thanks

Use the 'name' property.

Thanks for your reply. Its an aspx from a Sharepoint site.

So the page doesnt have any name properties on the page like

<input type='checkbox' name='CBName'>

This line works perfect for drop down boxes

getField('Select','DropDownBoxName').onchange = function() {TestFunctionName()};

to...

But when I try change it to work with a check box like below it doesnt seem to...

getField('Input','CheckBoxName').onclick = function() {TestFunctionName()};

Thank You

In many contexts name= and id= are interchangeable.
If you have a bunch of elements having neither, unless they belong to a named group or form you are pretty much reduced to trying to figure out the [index] to the TagNames[] collection - but doing so depends on knowing the layout of the page and also knowing that it will never change.
