javascript Unable to get property 'value' of undefined or null reference

The Solution to javascript Unable to get property 'value' of undefined or null reference is


The issue is how you're attempting to get the value. Things like...

if ( document.frm_new_user_request.u_isid.value == '' )

won't work. You need to find the element you want to get the value of first. It's not quite like a server side language where you can type in an object's reference name and a period to get or assign values.

document.getElementById('[id goes here]').value;

will work. Note: JavaScript is case-sensitive

I would recommend using:

var variablename = document.getElementById('[id goes here]');

or

var variablename = document.getElementById('[id goes here]').value;
