View Full Version : Programming Conflict..Please Help!

09-10-2004, 12:12 PM
I integrated the Image w/ description tooltip DHTML script (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/imagetooltip.htm) into a page on my website. There is some kind of conflict occuring with another script somewhere.

I integrated the script to work with an image map, and the script works great when the url is clicked: http://www.all-pak.com/exemptdg.asp

However, when a user usues the menu on that page (Products/Dangerous Goods/Exempt Packs), the DHTML script would quits working.

I think that the reason that it is not working is that it is conflicting with another script somewhere. I am not a programmer, and any help anyone could provide me would be greatly appreciated.

Try putting your script in its own html page, set your top and left-hand margin to "0". Insert an iframe on the page you have built with the problem where your script should go. You can tell the iframe not to display a border and no scrollbars. You set the initial page for the iframe. This solves most problems with scripts that decide to stop working.

Another thing is to check to make sure you don't have broken tags. When you cut and paste tables in FrontPage it is easy to not catch your beginning and ending tags on tables. Now Internet Explorer usually doesn't care, Netscape can act really qwerky if you don't have all your ending tags, and sometimes Opera can too.

It is a good idea to learn to read HTML. The Sam's book "Teach Yourself HTML in 24 Hours" is a good basic approach. Do the tutorials, all of them in the book, and what you learn will prove invalueable to you.
