    Default Making scripts run inside a div with content retrieved using ajax

    Hey there, I have for many days now tried to solve a problem of mine.
    I apologize in advance for the long post

    I needed to find some code that could load a html page into a div.
    I found it on this page http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...jaxcontent.htm
    and my hopes went up, everything worked like a charm until I tried to load
    a html page containing a script.

    Since I am using a plugin from jquery, I need 4 links to be loaded for the
    script to work. 3 script sources from jquery libraries, and 1 from my own
    folders. My html page runs these 4 scripts like a charm if I open the page
    in a browser window with all the scripts between the <head> tags, but the
    second it loads into the correct div, it stops running.

    The script on my html page looks like this:

    Code:
    <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.7.0/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>
    <script src="style/jquery.codabubble.js"></script>
    
    <script language="javascript">
    $(function(){
       opts = {
          distances : [20,10,10,20,10,20,10,10,10,10],
          leftShifts : [-35,-30,-70,-45,-55,-52,-67,-30,-45,-45],
          bubbleTimes : [500,500,500,500,500,500,500,500,500,500],
          hideDelays : [0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0],
          bubbleWidths : [200,200,250,250,250,250,250,250,250,250],
          bubbleImagesPath : "images",
          msieFix : true
       };
       $('.coda_bubble').codaBubble(opts);
    });
    </script>
    And according to the above linked page I should be able to load both the
    page and the scripts using this in the link:

    Code:
    <a href="javascript:ajaxpage('mypage.html', 'targetdiv'); loadobjs('http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js', 'http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.7.0/jquery-ui.min.js', 'style/jquery.codabubble.js', 'myscript.js')">LINK</a>
    Only thing I am missing really is the last piece of script that isn't an external file,
    can anyone help me make the script to a .js file and make it contain code that targets
    specifically the HTML inside "mypage.html" like the tutorial on the above linked page says?

    Default

    Thanks, I'll look into it
    In the meantime, this is the script I use on my index page:

    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">

    var bustcachevar=1 //bust potential caching of external pages after initial request? (1=yes, 0=no)
    var loadedobjects=""
    var rootdomain="http://"+window.location.hostname
    var bustcacheparameter=""
    
    function ajaxpage(url, containerid){
    var page_request = false
    if (window.XMLHttpRequest) // if Mozilla, Safari etc
    page_request = new XMLHttpRequest()
    else if (window.ActiveXObject){ // if IE
    try {
    page_request = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP")
    } 
    catch (e){
    try{
    page_request = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
    }
    catch (e){}
    }
    }
    else
    return false
    page_request.onreadystatechange=function(){
    loadpage(page_request, containerid)
    }
    if (bustcachevar) //if bust caching of external page
    bustcacheparameter=(url.indexOf("?")!=-1)? "&"+new Date().getTime() : "?"+new Date().getTime()
    page_request.open('GET', url+bustcacheparameter, true)
    page_request.send(null)
    }
    
    function loadpage(page_request, containerid){
    if (page_request.readyState == 4 && (page_request.status==200 || window.location.href.indexOf("http")==-1))
    document.getElementById(containerid).innerHTML=page_request.responseText
    }
    
    function loadobjs(){
    if (!document.getElementById)
    return
    for (i=0; i<arguments.length; i++){
    var file=arguments[i]
    var fileref=""
    if (loadedobjects.indexOf(file)==-1){ //Check to see if this object has not already been added to page before proceeding
    if (file.indexOf(".js")!=-1){ //If object is a js file
    fileref=document.createElement('script')
    fileref.setAttribute("type","text/javascript");
    fileref.setAttribute("src", file);
    }
    else if (file.indexOf(".css")!=-1){ //If object is a css file
    fileref=document.createElement("link")
    fileref.setAttribute("rel", "stylesheet");
    fileref.setAttribute("type", "text/css");
    fileref.setAttribute("href", file);
    }
    }
    if (fileref!=""){
    document.getElementsByTagName("head").item(0).appendChild(fileref)
    loadedobjects+=file+" " //Remember this object as being already added to page
    }
    }
    }
    </script>
    If someone see a quick and immediate solution, feel free to answer.
    I have struggled with this all week, because my boss really really really want's that function on our page
