Strange Onload problem

Hi there,

I have a php-generated page which can have a variety of layouts, depending
on a lot of things. But every layout has the same <head> and <body>
so i cannot put an onload in the <body> tag.

My problem:
I use the following code inside the body, which should be cross-browser:

if (window.attachE vent) {
window.attachEv ent('onload', goNL());
} else if (window.addEven tListener) {
window.addEvent Listener("load" , goNL(), false);
} else {
window.onload = goNL();

function goNL(){
document.getEle mentById('en'). style.display = "none"
document.getEle mentById('de'). style.display = "none"
document.getEle mentById('nl'). style.display = "inline"

When i call goNL() bij link <a href="javascrip t:goNL()">link</a> it works,
but why won't it work by itself????

Please lend me a hand!

Thanks & Greetings Knoak

You should pass/assign the function goNL and not call it as you do above
so you want

if (window.attachE vent) {
window.attachEv ent('onload', goNL);
} else if (window.addEven tListener) {
window.addEvent Listener("load" , goNL, false);
} else {
window.onload = goNL;

I'm trying to use the onload event to load a series of urls. What I find is that the onload function is only called one time no matter how large the array.
