Here are two ways to obtain element references in JavaScript:

document.getElementById('elementID')



The above method is the conventional way to go about obtaining the element reference.

When using the 4D Ajax Framework, there is a function that obtains the same result:

$('elementID')



This will return the element reference based on the element ID provided.
