JavaScript DOM with setAttribute when creating dynamic ids

Thursday, October 17, 2013


I have a question, I have been working on this all day with setAttribute() method. The research and reading I have the done the
below code should work.  I ran into an issue which forces me to have to create unique ids for an element.

var itemCount =0;
var newElement = document.createElement('div');
  newElement.setAttribute("id", 'updateCC );   //This works fine when I do the following test

      //do stuff
      alert("Found it updateCC" );    
    else {
      alert("Not found updateCC" );

but when I do the following

  newElement.setAttribute("id", 'updateCC' + itemCount);

The previous test fails, I even tried

 if(document.getElementById('updateCCD' + itemCount)){
      //do stuff
      alert("Found it updateCC" + itemCount);    
    else {
      alert("Not found updateCC" + itemCount);

It will give me the count but it still fails saying Not found

My documents(books) and Google searches, it should work.
What am I missing here.

Thanking You in Advance, I work on this all day and it has put me at a stand still.
