GetElementsByTagName Skips Every 2nd Tag!

Mar 19, 2007

I have some img tags in my HTML code, and I am trying to implement some manipulation on each image. Thing is, when using document.getElementsByTagName('img'), the JS engine skips every 2nd img tag, so I get an array with only half of the deal.

RemoveChild Skips On Odd Nodes, Why?

Feb 8, 2007

I must be missing something very obvious, but my nightly head doesn't work anymore.

Press "Insert" button to add <insnodes after each <br>. Now press "Delete" - only even <insare being removed. ins.length is reported properly, each <inshas "insert" class name. What a...?

JQuery :: Validate Method Will Not Work - Skips Validation

<div id="RegisterErrors" style="display:none" ></div>

GetElementsByTagName 'n Such

Jul 23, 2005

OK, so let's say, for example, I have a bit of HTML that looks like

<td class="regular1b" valign="top">
<a href="notfound.html"><span class="list5"><b>Lecture

And I want to save all the text ("all" meaning the tags and
everything) between the <td> and </td>. Using JavaScript, I was able
to isolate the <td></td> by doing:

var w = myTable.getElementsByTagName("TD");

So then I have an IF statement within a FOR loop that looks like:

if (w.item(i).className == "regular1b")

The ALERT() is just a place holder to make sure things are working.
The thing is, nodeValue returns NULL because there's no actual text
within the <td></td> tags; the only thing there is more HTML code, and
the text between the <span></span> apparently isn't considered part of
the <td></td> tags.

DOM GetElementsByTagName

Jan 12, 2004

I'm using the getElementsByTagName method to obtain a customer listing of records. So far so good. However, I also want to reference the child nodes of the customer records.

<customer id="1234" name="Mr Dodd">
<purchase po="1" value="3.00"/>
<purchase po="2" value="4.00"/>
<purchase po="3" value="5.00"/>

I used getElementsByTagName("customer") to obtain the list of customers, but I'm having trouble referencing the child nodes ie. purchase.

Does getElementsByTagName("customer") also obtain the child nodes, or only the matching element?

GetElementsByTagName Is Not A Function?

Jun 30, 2006

Here's the deal, If I access the page directly on my pc via the file system (i.e. I open up the file via: file::/path../main.html, the page and script runs just fine.

If however I point the browser to tomcat i.e. localhost:8080/blah
firefox spits out the error: getElementsByTagName is not a function.

Any thoughts or pointers? I'm totally confused over this..this is a built in function call?

note: I did an instanceof on the object making the call, and it does indeed confirm it is an object.

ps. I have confirmed I can access the all scripts/css files from the webserver (tomcat)

FireFox (1.5.04), Tomcat, IE6 (also fails, even though I haven't found out how to see the js error details?)

GetElementsByTagName - Subtree ?

Oct 28, 2009

I was looking at the documentation on this over at [url] and they have the following information:

Summary: Returns a list of elements with the given tag name. The subtree underneath the specified element is searched, excluding the element itself.

My question is this: what do they mean by "subtree?"

Alternatives To GetElementsByTagName

Feb 27, 2006

Are there any ways to edit the html within an element without knowing the TagName?

I'm trying to add html code within a <td> element that has no name or ID. What I do know is that it's the third <td> element within the only <tr> in the table. Assume that none of the elements in the file have IDs or names. The html is produced by a compiled program, so I have no way of editing the HTML in order to add names or IDs. Code:

GetElementsByTagName() Coming Up Null?

Feb 4, 2010

I use Google Chrome because of the Javascript debugger that comes included and I keep getting the following errors with my AJAX script


Uncaught TypeError: Cannot call method 'getElementsByTagName' of null option.html:23
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot call method 'getElementsByTagName' of null


What is supposed to happen is I press either button then it calls either getoptions1() or getoptions2() which then lists the options using listoption() Then the user selects a color and setoption() gets called. I'm having a problem with either getoption function or the listoption function.

Case-Sensitivity Of GetElementsByTagName

Feb 1, 2004

I'm working on developing an RSS/RDF/Atom Parser in JavaScript. I've already successfully implemented complete support for RSS 0.9x and 2.0. So far, so good. However, I've run into two minor problems. One is mentioned here, and one is in another post.

The issue that I'm coming across is the case-sensitivity of getElementsByTagName() when parsing standard RSS (XML) tags.

Danny Goodman's JavaScript Bible says that the tag name string that gets passed as the parameter in getElementsByTagName() is case-insensitive. However, this is speaking in terms of HTML and the HTML DOM. I'm working with XML, and getElementsByTagName is handling the XML tags as being case-sensitive.

Can someone suggest a way around this? Can a regular expression be used as the parameter? If so, what would the syntax be (as I'm not very familiar with regex)? For example, I want a <textinput> tag to be handled the same as <textInput> (which is the correct syntax).

Extracting XML Data Using GetElementsbyTagName?

Jun 9, 2009

I'm trying to write code that will extract from an XML file and then display the results. Keep getting a syntax error.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"

My intention was to access all of the tags (name, genre, and hitsong) in the XML file. Thought that var musicianInfo = xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName("*"); would do that. Then, loop through each tag and display the result.

Why isn't it working?

Using GetElementsByTagName On JSON Object?

Jul 15, 2011

I have an array of HTML tables created in PHP which I send as a XMLHttpResponse encoded with JSON. Is there was a way I could access the table elements which are now in the JSON Object?

Relevant bits:

PHP code:

$verificationListsResponse = array("classeList" => "$classeList", "workCodeList" => "$workCodeList");
$searchResponse['verificationLists'] = $verificationListsResponse;
print json_encode($searchResponse);

GetElementsByTagName Not Returning Values?

Sep 1, 2011

My getElementsByTagName ("a"); is not returning anything. (well it's returning "0" not the value I should be getting) I'm asking it to find the number of links on my simple html page. (the reason I'm even doing this is just because I'm trying to learn javascript) but the console in Firefox and the Alert window are just returning "0" when it should tell me I have "4" right?

the files are both located in the same folder, locally

this is my scripts.js file

var linksAmount = document.getElementsByTagName("a");
alert("Amount of Links:",linksAmount.length);
console.log("Amount of Links:",linksAmount.length);
and this is my html file (it's very small)

Image Sequence Skips First Image?

Dec 18, 2011

I made an image gallery, and I used a script to put them in an array, so people can browse through them using previous/next buttons. I think it may be a very oldfashioned script, but I don't know anything about javascript, and this one seemed simpler than others to modify.

I added a function that shows how many images there are and the number of the image you are seeing (photo 1/6 for example)

The problem is that the script seems to skip counting the first image, it calls the second one 'photo 1/6', doesn't allow you to go back to the first and stops at the fifth. I tried to add a window.onload function, but I think I did it wrong, or it doesnt work because of other scripts that are also loaded on the page (JqueryBeforeAfter).

Here is the script I used:

<!-- script created by : THeMaRTy -->
<!-- website: -->
var count=0;
var link_array = new Array();

Document.getElementsByTagName Works In FF, Doesn't In Opera And IE?

Feb 21, 2009

I was trying to make simple JS script, but it seems like i have problem.

I have really basic html:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-2"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"


AS you see, i have ONE div element, and Firefox alerts the 1 as result, which is correct. But Opera (9) and Ie(7) returns length of 0. How is that possible?

this is intresting. I tryed to use '*' instead of 'div', to search for all elements. FF alerts HEAD, BODY and DIV elements, while opera only first two, and not Div.

GetElementsByTagName("script") Doesn't Work Properly After An AJAX Call In IE

The following code works well in both FF and IE

<div id="div1">

<script type="text/javascript">

However if the contents of div1 obtains its innerHTML from an AJAX call then the first <script> tage is not found by getElementsByTagName("script") if there is no other HTML before the <script> tag.
