can be used as shorthand for the document.getElementById
functions. The $get
shortcut function points to the Sys.UI.DomElement.getElementById
(which means you will need to include a ScriptManager on the page to be able to use it). $get
accepts two parameters, the first is the ID of the DOM element you want
to retrieve, the second is the parent element of where the search
starts. The second parameter is optional and when it is not supplied
defaults to the document element. Here is the official API reference.
shortcut function allows you to look up an ASP.NET AJAX client side Component
by it's ID. Here is a link
to the $find shortcut's documentation and below is the API description.
