CSS class question.

Is it possible to obtain a Style object in Javascript which represents a defined
CSS class in an external file?

I have a custom control, but I would really hate to have to define the style in code
rather than assign a class name to the DOM node.

I have call back events from the control and I would like to be able to assign a child
node's className equal to its 'selected' style class via getElementById instead of changing
the class object's _defaultCellStyleCSSName and removing/appending the parent control.



You down with OOP? Yeah you know me!

I guess another alternative would be to store an actual style of a DOM node in the class.

So for my dataGridCell class:

I could just use that _domElement object in my toDom function as well.
I guess I could assign default classNames (same as actual object class name)
for default and selected/highlighted and just assign the .style, if anything is set
it will trump, if not, default cssclass.

Sound like a good idea?

I have no idea what you are trying to accomplish.
