Can we access controls within user controls on the client side without using ctl0_ControlsName

When we create controls within our user controls, the way we can access those controls in client side is i guess:

getElementByID('the client id')

but the server chnages the names of those controls to:  clt0_Controlsname, so i always have to use add ctl0 when I want to access to my controls of the user control on the client side.

is there a solution to this or that s just the way it is

thank you


Thanks a lot, I appreciate your taking the time to help me.
