GetElementbyName in Javascript

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hi Guys,

I have following small code snipped in Javascript

var something = document.getElementsByName('key');

         for(obj in something) {

Open in new window

Here the var "Something " definately has tow values and when I do obj.value for each one then it comes back as undefined. BUt when I do something[0].value then it returns the real value.  I am not sure what is wrong with this code?
