Experts,

 

I am working on debugging already written jboss seam project.

I need to pass a textarea id as a javascript function, but I found out that the actual textarea id that was generated by browser is different than the hard-coded id in the javascript function.

 

Here is what I am talking about:

 

<textarea id="j_id5861:j_id3864:modal-physicalexam-form:general-physicalei" name="j_id5861:j_id3864:modal-physicalexam-form:general-physicalei" cols="50" onkeyup="updateCount('j_id5861:j_id3864:modal-physicalexam-form:general-physicalei','modal-physicalexam-form:general-physicalei:notes-count','{CHAR} of 4000 characters remaining',4000);" rows="8"></textarea>

 

...

...

<a href="#" onclick="addDefault('modal-physicalexam-form:general-physicalei',  'Well developed'); return false;">Add</a> Well developed</li>

 

 

My question is is there any way that I can find the upper level tag that is not specified? If I can specify Seam generated id, I can fix this bug. Another word, I want to make textarea is like this:

<textarea id="abc:def:modal-physicalexam-form:general-physicalei"

 

thanks,
