As you know, Magento uses Prototype as javascript library.  It provides a simple way to validate html form values.

Below is an example:

<form name=”my-form” id=”my-form” method=”post”>
<label for=”firstname”>
< ?php echo $this->__(‘First name’) ?> <span>*</span></label><br />
<input  id=”firstname” name=”firstname” class="input-text required-entry"/>

<label for=”lastname”>
< ?php echo $this->__(‘Last name’) ?> <span>*</span></label><br />
<input  id=”lastname” name=”lastname” class="input-text required-entry"/>

</form>

<script type=”text/javascript”>
//< ![CDATA[
var customForm = new VarienForm('my-form');
//]]>
</script>

How to get a block in any where?

By the normal way, you can get a block by using object Layout.

For example,  in a controller:

$this->getLayout()->createBlock(‘module_name/block_name’);

It is the same with a block or a template file.

But if you want to get a block in a helper, model or any where, what way?

In this case, you can use: Mage::app()->getBlockSingleton(‘module_name/block_name’);
