Hi all,

I have created some textboxes dynamically by using

var sun = document.createElement('input');

with button click.

after some time I will re visit the fields, how do I retrive that element's Id or name onblur event.

Bythe following code I used to get the value of the specified element, but I want id or name of that element .

code examples are highly appreciated.

Thanks & regards,
zimbu

I really don't know what you are asking. Did you give the element an id when you created it? If not, it doesn't have one. If you did, then what's your question? If you have a reference to the element, you can retrieve its id (if it has one). If you have the id, you can get a reference to the element. If you don't have either of these, you need some other way to uniquely identify the element in order to find it.
