View Full Version : Help: How to change <Body Onload=> script

06-05-2008, 08:24 PM
Hi all,

Is there a way to change the script below from having a "onLoad="slideit()">" and move it instead to something like a window.onload thingie? Since I notice that the more body onloads I have it kinda messes up the others javascripts...:confused:

<script language="JavaScript1.2">

function reapply(){
return true
<script language="JavaScript1.1">
var image1=new Image()
var image2=new Image()
var image3=new Image()
var image4=new Image()

<body onLoad="slideit()">

Attached is the entire script (minus the jpg images):p
Thanks in advance for any help on this!

<body onLoad="slideit()">

is invalid. Just because one <body is lower case and another is upper case makes no difference, you still have two body tags. Only one is allowed. You might be able to solve your problem by changing the above to:

<body onLoad="slideit()">

But to answer your question, you could alternatively have this:

window.onload = slideit;

in your script. Then you would be able to have just this for the opening body tag:

Thanks...it worked ok, but only if its the only script running:( here's how I modified it btw:

window.onload = function reapply(){
return true

but then when combined with this script, it still wont work (this doesnt have to be put in between the <HEAD></HEAD>:

<script type="text/javascript">

var montharray=new Array("January","February","March","April","May","June","July","August","September","October","November","December")
var serverdate=new Date(currenttime)

function padlength(what){
var output=(what.toString().length==1)? "0"+what : what
return output

function displaytime(){
var datestring=montharray[serverdate.getMonth()]+" "+padlength(serverdate.getDate())+", "+serverdate.getFullYear()
var timestring=padlength(serverdate.getHours())+":"+padlength(serverdate.getMinutes())+":"+padlength(serverdate.getSeconds())
document.getElementById("servertime").innerHTML=datestring+" "+timestring

setInterval("displaytime()", 1000)

<p><b><font face="Verdana" color="FFFF00" size="2">Current Server Time:</b> <span id="servertime"></span></font></p>

Dunno where the conflict is...
