document.getElementsByName method

Reported by Ankur Raiyani | April 1st, 2009 @ 08:37 AM

I found a replacement ('$') for document.getElementById in prototype. But there is no replacement for document.getElementsByName in prototype.

So, i have tried and made below function. I have tested it and currently using in my application. I think we can add this into prototype.

function $N(element)
  if (typeof element == 'string')
    element = document.getElementsByName(element);
  return Element.extend(element);

Thanks for sharing great framework.

Thanks, Ankur
