Can someone tell me why this does not work, looks like it would to me!


<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
function rnd(max) {
  var rndnum = max * Math.random();
  rndnum = Math.ceil(rndnum);
  return rndnum;
  } 
function start() {
var a = rnd;
var els = document.getElementsByClassName('Numbers');
for (i=0; i < els.length; i++){
  a = document.f1.t[i].value;
  }} 
</script>
</head>
<body onload="start();">
<form action="#" name=f1 >
<input type="text" name="t1" class="Numbers" value=""><br>
<input type="text" name="t2" class="Numbers" value=""><br>
<input type="text" name="t3" class="Numbers" value=""><br>
</form>
</body>
</html>

Please note getElementsByClassName is not available on MS Internet Explorer

Else :


replace :
a = document.f1.t[i].value;

by :
els[i].value = a(10);

... Unfortunately there is no such method as document.getElementsByClassName so we can't grab a collection of all of the tags that share a class that way, we'll have to find another way to do it.

Read that page for defining a getElementsByClassName function .

HonorGod; I looked at the article but it must be wrong since I am using this method and after making the change that leakim971 suggested my code is now working perfectly.
