How do I read the value of a non HTML textbox from JavaScript?

Hi All,

I'm trying to read the value of the textbox called TextBox1 and pass it as follows

<INPUT title="Button" style="Z-INDEX: 115; LEFT: 832px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 176px"
                        onclick="showAnimation(TextBox1);" type="button" value="Button">

function showAnimation(file) { if (file != '') {
                  WinName = toString(file)
                  alert(WinName)
                  popup(file ,100,100,500,300,file,false,false,false,false,false,true,false);

            }

The popup function is already working, but the "file" parameter in showAnimation is not getting passed.  It should be the Text value of TextBox1.

try TextBox1.value
or document.all.TextBox1.value

I believe your function showAnimation() takes the value of textbox as parameter

Your INPUT tag has an attribute named "title".  I am not sure that is correct.  It should be:

<INPUT id="Button" name="Button" style="{your style settings}" onclick="showAnimation();" type="button">

Baan's code above for getting the file then is right, just make sure the string in getElementById(...) is the same as the string in the id="..." attribute of the INPUT tag.  You had "value='Button'", which would have the word Button in the textbox.  I think (as stated by others above) that this should be the filename af the animation, so I don't think you want to preset that value in the HTML.
