Can anyone tell me the diff between the following two statements
var username=document.forms['myForm']['username'].value; var username=document.myForms.username.value;
Sorry 2nd statement is
Your two statements may or may not both select the same document node.
I think the first version is more likely to be successful, not because of its syntax but because it addresses the collection
document.myForm... may also work but I would personally be less inclined to rely on it, cross-browser.
Whatever you use, test test test.
Both the statements are working properly. But i want to know how the 2nd statement is also working. How it is recognizing the myForm as form name. In the 1st statement, form is a keyword. But in the 2nd statement we are not specifying myForm as form name.
MYFORM is anyway child of document so it is allowing, I think problem occurs when there are more than one form.
