When I add a TextBox control to a HTML page and then
rename the control (id and name) from Text1 to for example
txtName in either the source windows or properties window.
If I try and reference the control txtName in a function
the control is not recognised, when you type the txtname.
the properties and methods do not display and when the
function is executed nothing happens. The control
correctly appears in the script outline.

It works when I do it. Added a textbox and a button to a blank page. Renamed Text1 to txtName. Created a function so when the button is pressed Hello will be the textbox's value.

<META name=VI60_defaultClientScript content=VBScript>
<META NAME="GENERATOR" Content="Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0">
<SCRIPT ID=clientEventHandlersVBS LANGUAGE=vbscript>

Function button1_onclick
txtName.value = "Hello"
End Function


<P><INPUT id=txtName name=txtName>
<INPUT id=button1 type=button value=Button name=button1></P>
