Javascript : Cycle Div IDs w/Prefix & Reset HTML

I need a simple snippet to cycle through all the DIVs in a document with the ID prefix of "VALIDATIONRESPONSE." and reset the internal HTML

So there could be 10 DIVs with unique names like "VALIDATIONRESPONSE.email_addr" and "VALIDATIONRESPONSE.first_name"

I need a JS snippet to cycle through the Document that resets the Internal HTML of each div to NULL (empty)

Check this :

            var divs = document.getElementsByTagName("div");
            for(var i=0;i=0;
                  if(b) {
                        divs[i].innerHTML = "";
                  }
            }

the ID of the DIVs is VALIDATIONRESPONSE.  not the content...


example:  <div id="VALIDATIONRESPONSE.email_addr"></div>

Here, I just modified your code.. the basics were there.

switched out innerHTML for id

Thanks :)


            var divs = document.getElementsByTagName("div");
            for(var i=0;i<divs.length;i++) {
                  var b = divs[i].id.indexOf("VALIDATIONRESPONSE.")>=0;
                  if(b) {
                        divs[i].innerHTML = "";
                  }
            }
