There's no need for the $A part of that, $$ returns an array already. > Do I have to use the element type after $$( ? As the docs say, it finds elements according to CSS selectors. Specifically, $$ supports CSS2 and a fair bit of CSS3, so you type the same selectors you'd use for CSS. So for instance: var inputControls = $$('.FokusControls'); Prototype's documentation is a bit messed up right now, but it may be useful to have a read through the old docs and the new ones (the old docs still have information that hasn't been migrated to the new docs yet; people are working on it).  http://prototypejs.org/api  http://api.prototypejs.org HTH, -- T.J.
