Default Document all


I need to loop through all the tags in a html page and check the className so that I can change it. The loop below works fine with IE but not with other browsers. The problem is that document.all only works with IE. I read I can use the getElementById() method but then I need to know the IDs of every tag. This is not going to work in my case.

Could someone shed some light!!!!



for(i=0; i< document.all.length; i++)
    if(document.all[i].className == "descExpanded")
        document.all[i].className = "descContracted";

In modern browsers you can do:
var colAll = document.getElementsByTagName("*");
Are you sure that the objects won't have more than one class name?

Hi Joe,

I will have more than one class name but I can check for the name:

if (colAll.className == "test") do something

Am I right??
