Hi Quleczka,

Yes, the dot notation method works for me as well.  I was trying to create a 
generic handler on the page that could set attributes for elements in a generic 
way according to ajax responses.  It's ok, I can use the method you mentioned 
above for Form Elements and the generic version for others.

Warm Regards,
