Good morning, I wanted to use the method "getElementsByClassName" by prototype to retrieve an array of objects. Using my Firefox 3.0.7 on Windows XP alert told me that the returned value by this method is a Nodelist, which I couldn't iterate using prototypes each-method for arrays.
Prototype's api docs (http://www.prototypejs.org/api/element/ getElementsByClassName) state that the method returns an array, normally. Using google I found this link: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/document.getElementsByClassName It seems that getElementsByClassName is implemented by Firefox and prototyp and that prototype doesn't override the native implementation. When two methods with the same name are available, one in prototype and one from the browser, am I able to determine which method is used? I understand that prototype doesn't want to override native implementations of methods to not break browser compability but in this case where I use prototype to achieve that my scripts run the same way on almost every browser Firefox's impolementation of the prototype function is breaking my script because of incompatible returned data types by the two implementations of the method. I couldn't find any suggestions on how to deal with those situations. Is the only way to check for the needed data types on method returns and work around the fact that methods may be implemented in the browser nativley using different data types for return values? This would be a lot of work to do for every common function provided by prototype which could be implemented natively, too. bye basti --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Prototype & script.aculo.us" group.
