It seems as though you cannot reference an HTML object (such as a text input box) if there is client-side script in the "&#060;input&#062;" tag. For example, I am setting the initial value of the control with a variable derived from an external component...<BR><BR>&#060;input type="text" id="text1" value="&#060;%=oSample.Age%&#062;"&#062;<BR><BR>Ho wever, when I try to reference the textbox in a JavaScript event handler, it says the object does not exist.<BR><BR>I am using Visual InterDev and noticed that if you remove the client-side script, the object becomes available.<BR><BR>Is this something unique to VID? How would I be able to set the value as I described but still be able to reference the object? (For example, I&#039d like to validate the textbox to make sure a number has been entered).<BR><BR>Many thanks,<BR>Dave<BR>
