Referring to DIV inside document using client-side VBScript

Can I refer to a DIV inside an HTML document using client side VBScript inside IE (intranet)?

I have tried it all but it seems that while a <FORM....> becomes a child of its HTML document contained, a DIV does not?

Confused.

show us your code ...

I would think that you could do this:

<DIV id="myDiv">content</DIV>

and in your code:

div = document.getElementById("myDiv")
msgbox div.innerHTML

Not sure if "document.getElementById('myDiv');" will work in IE knightEknight.  I believe that  JXCovert may want to use:

document.all('myDiv');

Otherwise, it looks good to me.

The obsolete document.all has not been required since IE4 which does not even have a measuable market share anymore.  While a lot of developers continue to spew out defective pages using document.all there is absolutely zero to be gained by using it for anything other then in references to legacy relics in a museum somewhere.

Heh

I found that a DIV is NOT a child to the document.  Referring to myDiv as document.myDiv.disabled threw an error.  Referring to myDiv.disabled worked well.

Strange.
