Hi,

I just want to test which textbox the user is filling in. I think I'll use an onkeyup function call from the textbox, but how do I check the name of the textbox with focus?

I was thinking something along these lines but it doesn't seem to work (no message)

CODE


/* JS */

function focusField(curEl)
{
var current_ele = curEl;
alert("here");
if(current_ele.Name() == "Fname")
alert("yay!");
}

<!-- html -->
<input type="text" name="Fname" id="Fname" value="" onkeyup="focusField(this);"> <!-- pass element makign call -->

You could do it like this:

CODE
if(curEl.name == "Fname")


(note that it's "name", not "Name").

D'oh, should have thought of that since I've used

.innerHTML and .focus()

all lower case first words.

I'll give it a try Monday
