Getting the ID from evt.getSource() for a ADFRichInputDate

onaled777 used Ask the Experts™
My aim is to get the client id of a component.

The following two lines results in the popup shown in the attached files:

targetDateClientID = evt.getSource();
alert('targetDateClientID' + targetDateClientID);

The file attached gives an idea of the type of component involved and the id value that I want.

What field or method do I need to call from evt.getSource() to get the client id it1:0:id3 as shown at the end of the string?

How do i extract the id from this type of source

Worst case - do
targetDateClientID = targetDateClientID.replace(/.*id=/, ''));
