i tried that one. it doesn't work. using ie7. here's my code:

thisID = "edtBox" + 5;
var thisID = new awInput(thisID, InputPositions[0], InputPositions[1], InputPositions[2], InputPositions[3], InputTypes[i]);
thisID.getContent("box/text").setAttribute("maxlength", 2);
thisID.refresh();

Try this -

var obj = new AW.UI.Input;
obj.getContent("box/text").setAttribute("maxlength", 2);
document.write(obj);

yes, it works. my problem is that i have automated this in a function so as to avoid retyping a whole code. the function contains all the necessary coding to create an object and i only pass it the script as above. it seems like once document.write() executes, setattribute will not work .. no?i'm still looking for a way out.

Could it be that you accidentally have another object with the same ID?

it is in a loop, assigning id dynamically by concatenating id and number thereby creating uniq id.
