      Hi,
      I use DOM to get the Checkbox Button value, but it returned as "undefined".
      Look like I am referring to not exist object.
      I can't find any hint from the YUI Library website. Could you please help me? Thanks in advance!

        When using a YUI Button instance, you don't query the DOM for the
        value, but rather the Button's "value" attribute via the get()
        method. For example:

        var val = oCheckButton8.get("value");

          Todd,

          With your advise, I finally get the value, tks.

          I write my understanding here, may be can help other people, too.

          a. I create the button from markup of Checkbox field, but Checkbox
          Button is different from Checkbox input field.
          b. DOM can use to get value of Checkbox field, however not applicable
          for Checkbox Button.
          (But there is a question mark in my head, why there is different?
          And where can I find this information in the API or website?)
          c. The Example provided by yui, the variable Scope is in a function
          (local).

            JK -

            Button transforms all pre-existing markup into a new format (using
            the <button> element) in order to provide a look and feel that is
            consistent across Button types. For this reason, you need to use the
            Button's API, not the DOM API for accessing any attributes as the
            original markup provided (in your case, the <input>) element, isn't in
            the DOM any longer. So that covers your points a and b. Not sure
            about question c. Can you clarify your question?

            Thanks,
            Todd

              Todd,

              Sorry for my late reply! My point c was remark to help anybody who looking for the issue too. In the example, oCheckButton8 is declared inside the function; in case to access it outside the function. I need to declare oCheckButton8 outside the function.

              Inside
              ======
              (function () { ...
              var oCheckButton8 = new Button("checkbutton8" ....
              Outside
              =======
              var oCheckButton8;
              (function () {

              Regards,

                In that example I am simply declaring an anonymous function for the
                purpose of creating a scope to declare a variable (Button) that is an
                alias for YAHOO.widget.Button. So, if you want to create a Button
                instance outside that function scope, simply do so using the fully
                qualified reference:

                var oCheckButton8 = new YAHOO.widget.Button("checkbutton8");
