Calling Combined Multiple Javascripts from XHTML

6 New Member
Is it possible to combine multiple javascipts into one file and then call that file from a linked URL in the head section of an XHTML file?

Here are the two scripts I want to use with the instructions on where to normally place them in an XHTML document:


Step 1: Insert the below anywhere into the <body> section of your page where you wish the clock to be displayed:<scri pt>

var dayarray=new Array("Sunday", "Monday","Tuesd ay","Wednesday" ,"Thursday","Fr iday","Saturday ")
var montharray=new Array("January" ,"February","Ma rch","April","M ay","June","Jul y","August","Se ptember","Octob er","November", "December")

function getthedate(){
var mydate=new Date()
var year=mydate.get Year()
if (year < 1000)
var day=mydate.getD ay()
var month=mydate.ge tMonth()
var daym=mydate.get Date()
if (daym<10)
var hours=mydate.ge tHours()
var minutes=mydate. getMinutes()
var seconds=mydate. getSeconds()
var dn="AM"
if (hours>=12)
if (hours>12){
if (hours==0)
if (minutes<=9)
minutes="0"+min utes
if (seconds<=9)
seconds="0"+sec onds
//change font size here
var cdate="<small>< font color='000000' face='Arial'><b >"+dayarray[day]+", "+montharra y[month]+" "+daym+", "+year+" "+hours+":"+min utes+":"+second s+" "+dn
if (document.all)
document.all.cl ock.innerHTML=c date
else if (document.getEl ementById)
document.getEle mentById("clock ").innerHTML=cd ate
document.write( cdate)
if (!document.all& &!document.getE lementById)
function goforit(){
if (document.all|| document.getEle mentById)
setInterval("ge tthedate()",100 0)

<span id="clock"></span>

Step 2: Add the below into the <body> tag itself, like this:

<body onLoad="goforit ()">

Configuring the date- You can change the font type, size, and color of the date. To do so, go to the line "//change font configuration here" in the above code. Right below that line contains the simple HTML tags that you should change to change the font.


Step 1: Insert the below code in the <head> section of your page:

<style type="text/css">

/*Example CSS for the two demo tickers*/

width: 200px;
height: 100px;
border: 1px dashed black;
padding: 5px;
background-color: #FFFFCA;

#domticker div{ /*IE6 bug fix when text is bold and fade effect (alpha filter) is enabled. Style inner DIV with same color as outer DIV*/
background-color: #FFFFCA;

#domticker a{
font-weight: bold;

width: 350px;
height: 1.2em;
border: 1px solid black;
padding: 3px;

#domticker2 a{
text-decoration: none;

.someclass{ //class to apply to your scroller(s) if desired


<script type="text/javascript">

/*Example message arrays for the two demo scrollers*/

function domticker(conte nt, divId, divClass, delay, fadeornot){
this.content=co ntent
this.tickerid=d ivId //ID of master ticker div. Message is contained inside first child of ticker div
this.delay=dela y //Delay between msg change, in miliseconds.
this.mouseoverB ol=0 //Boolean to indicate whether mouse is currently over ticker (and pause it if it is)
this.opacitystr ing=(typeof fadeornot!="und efined")? "width: 100%; filter:progid:D XImageTransform .Microsoft.alph a(opacity=100); -moz-opacity: 1" : ""
if (this.opacityst ring!="") this.delay+=500 //add 1/2 sec to account for fade effect, if enabled

var instanceOfTicke r=this
setTimeout(func tion(){instance OfTicker.initia lize()}, delay)

domticker.proto type.initialize =function(){
var instanceOfTicke r=this
this.contentdiv =document.getEl ementById(this. tickerid).first Child //div of inner content that holds the messages
document.getEle mentById(this.t ickerid).onmous eover=function( ){instanceOfTic ker.mouseoverBo l=1}
document.getEle mentById(this.t ickerid).onmous eout=function() {instanceOfTick er.mouseoverBol =0}
this.rotatemsg( )

domticker.proto type.rotatemsg= function(){
var instanceOfTicke r=this
if (this.mouseover Bol==1) //if mouse is currently over ticker, do nothing (pause it)
setTimeout(func tion(){instance OfTicker.rotate msg()}, 100)
this.fadetransi tion("reset") //FADE EFFECT- RESET OPACITY
this.contentdiv .innerHTML=this .content[this.pointer]
this.fadetimer1 =setInterval(fu nction(){instan ceOfTicker.fade transition('up' , 'fadetimer1')}, 100) //FADE EFFECT- PLAY IT
this.pointer=(t his.pointer<thi s.content.lengt h-1)? this.pointer+1 : 0
setTimeout(func tion(){instance OfTicker.rotate msg()}, this.delay) //update container

// -------------------------------------------------------------------
// fadetransition( )- cross browser fade method for IE5.5+ and Mozilla/Firefox
// -------------------------------------------------------------------

domticker.proto type.fadetransi tion=function(f adetype, timerid){
var contentdiv=this .contentdiv
if (fadetype=="res et")
this.opacityset ting=0.2
if (contentdiv.fil ters && contentdiv.filt ers[0]){
if (typeof contentdiv.filt ers[0].opacity=="numb er") //IE6+
contentdiv.filt ers[0].opacity=this.o pacitysetting*1 00
else //IE 5.5
contentdiv.styl e.filter="alpha (opacity="+this .opacitysetting *100+")"
else if (typeof contentdiv.styl e.MozOpacity!=" undefined" && this.opacitystr ing!=""){
contentdiv.styl e.MozOpacity=th is.opacitysetti ng
this.opacityset ting=1
if (fadetype=="up" )
this.opacityset ting+=0.2
if (fadetype=="up" && this.opacityset ting>=1)
clearInterval(t his[timerid])


Step 2: Then, inside the BODY section of your page, to display a ticker, simply use the below example code:

<script type="text/javascript">

//new domticker(name_ of_message_arra y, CSS_ID, CSS_classname, pause_in_milise conds, optionalfadeswi tch)

new domticker(ticke rcontent, "domticker" , "someclass" , 3000, "fadeit")
document.write( "<br />")
new domticker(ticke rcontent2, "domticker2 ", "someclass" , 3000)

The code of Step 2 shows you how to invoke a ticker instance:

new domticker(ticke rcontent, "domticker" , "someclass" , 3000, "fadeit")

Where "tickercont ent" is the name of the array defined earlier that contains your ticker messages, and "domticker" , an arbitrary but unique CSS ID for that scroller. "someclass" is simply an random CSS classname you can pass to add additional style to the ticker, and "3000" points to the pause time between messages, in milliseconds. Finally, "fadeit" is an optional parameter that when set, causes the ticker to fade the messages into view. To disable this feature, just remove this parameter completely.

Thanks for any help with combining these scripts or suggestions on calling them separately from a linked URL in the head section of the XHTML document.
