Loop to collect divs

Trying to turn div visiblitly to false with a loop. When the user hovers over a menu item I call the function getMenuName(this). Passing "this" into the function because I have named my divs after the menu items preceded by "myDiv"

Here is what I have so far:

function getMenuName(obj)
{
var objName;
objName = "mydiv" + obj.childNodes[0].nodeValue;
objShow = document.getElementById(objName)
objShow.style.visibility = "visible"
}

This works great to make the desired div visible, but now I need to turn off the others. How do I loop through the page and...

1 - Collect all divs that begin with "myDiv"

2 - Change visibilty to hidden.

Thanks in advance.

You will need to collect all divs within page( or section in question).

var els = document.getElementsByTagName('div');

and check id of each.

I also strongly recommend looking into YUI (Yahoo's DHTML/AJAX framework), as they have a series of methods that work very well for these exact processes, for example:


var collection = YAHOO.util.Dom.getElementsByClassName('blah');

and "collection" will contain a collection of any object of class 'blah'.

jquery:
$('.myclass').show();
