Javascript Question please!

Boohoo , I'm having an issue, have a look at this:

<body>
<v:obj id="1" o:spt="142">
</body>

Question is, how on earth do you access the o:spt value through javascript? that just a normal html body tag...i can get the obj element through the id, but cant get at the o:spt bit.

Please help, I've hit a brick wall with this and cant move on.

Thanks.

Try this:

      function showIt() {
            var xobj
            xobj = document.getElementById("1");            
            window.alert(xobj.getAttribute('o:spt'));
      }

"value is null or not an object" or just plain "null" :o(

here's the complete test page:

<HTML
xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml"
xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"
>
<HEAD>
      <META http-equiv="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; CHARSET=iso-8859-1">
      <TITLE></TITLE>
      <STYLE>
            P{ margin: 0px; }
            v\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);}
            o\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);}
            w\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);}
      </STYLE>

</HEAD>
<BODY>

      <v:shapetype id="1" coordsize="" o:spt="142" adj="" path=""></v:shapetype>

<script>
      var el=document.getElementById("1");
      alert(el.getAttribute("o:spt"));
</script>
</BODY>

Just FYI..when I remove this line (and add an </HTML> tag) it works.

v\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);}

Not sure why that would affect it though.

yeah thats what's causing me the heartache...but without that line the rest of the program falls over :o/

I cant think why that would cause that to happen.

After a lot of digging through VML code this is what I came up with,

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/workshop/author/vml/shape/a_spt.asp

This says that you should be able to access using the following format in a script,

el.spt

This is all I could come up with. I hope this helps you,

Thanks for trying guys, no matter what I try there's no way to modify that parameter and I cant check out the schema.  According to MS its read/write, but that's obviously not the case.

Hope you dont mind me splitting the points.

Regards,
Al

Yeah, well it says in the reference, the attribute is used internally whatever that means.
