I have a table like:

<table id="tbl_">
    <!-- Looping multiple rows through code
      i is an increment variable
    -->
    <tr>
         <td><input type="hidden" name="hdn[i]" value="1"</td>
         <td>Hello World</td>
    </tr>
</table>

I want to be able to take a find the name of the hidden input in the table cell 0.  Something like:

alert(tbl_.rows[0].cells[0].elementAt[0].name);

is this possible?

srobia-

I'm not sure exactly what you're asking for.  Let me know if this helps or if I missed the boat on this one.

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE> New Document </TITLE>
<script>
function doIt(){
var theTable = document.getElementById("tbl_");
alert(theTable.rows[0].cells[0].children[0].value);
}
</script>
</HEAD>

<BODY>
<table id="tbl_">
    <!-- Looping multiple rows through code
      i is an increment variable
    -->
    <tr>
         <td><input type="hidden" name="hdn[i]" value="1"/></td>
         <td>Hello World</td>
    </tr>
</table>

<input type="button" value="show hidden value" onclick="doIt()"/>

</BODY>
</HTML>

oops- to get what you're after you in the function doIt() you can change

...children[0].value
to
...children[0].name
