View Full Version : Authoring JavaScript

03-30-2008, 06:52 AM
I am using a script to create a "tool-tip" type navigation bar where when the mouse is held over a link, the tool-tip appears with sub-links.

I need to use my JavaScript on every page, as it also contains information about which sub-links to display for every base link. These sub-links will be updated rather frequently, which means I would have to go and edit each page for every update.

How do I direct my "onMouseover" to find a JavaScript page on my server so I can update only one page, rather than 20?

Below is what my current link looks like:

<a href="/main/events.html" onMouseover="showmenu(event,linkset[1])" onMouseout="delayhidemenu()">events</a>

Any help would be great! Thanks!

You need to place all your javascript in an external file and get it on your pages(s) by a tag such as this in the head...
<SCRIPT src="myJavascriptScripts.js"></SCRIPT>
