Javascript "Pause" button working in IE, but not in Firefox

Greetings everyone.

See
http://www.spiceisle.com/cgi-bin/sli...mages&type=jpg

The "Pause" button works in IE, but not in Firefox. Any ideas why?

If you have any other ideas on how the javascript can be improved, please
let me know.
Thanks and regards,

var e = document.getEle mentById('Pause Button');
e.value = "Play";

shorten to:
document.getEle mentById('Pause Button').value = "Play";;
this may not be the root of the problem however

The answer is the Firefox Javascript Console (Tools > Javascript
Console) which when you click the pause buttons says

Error: e has no properties
Source File:
http://www.spiceisle.com/cgi-bin/sli...mages&type=jpg
Line: 325

Look at line 325 which says

e.value = "Play";

e is defined at 324

var e = document.getEle mentById('Pause Button');

and you have no element in the page with an id of 'PauseButton'. At
line 453 use id instead of name.
If you have any other ideas on how the javascript can be improved, please

A slightly flippant suggestion perhaps - don't use Microsoft Frontpage.

Thanks Mike:

I combined your response with the assistance from another response, and came
up with the following:

1. "PauseShow" subroutine changed to the following:

function PauseShow() {

if (play == true) {

document.getEle mentById('Pause Button').value = "Play";
play = false;
}
else {

document.getEle mentById('Pause Button').value = "Pause";
play = true;
pictimer = timer + delta;
SlideShow('slid epic');
}
}

2. Modified the HTML definition for the "Pause" button as follows:

<input type="button" value="Pause" name="PauseButt on" id="PauseButton "
onclick="PauseS how()" style="font-family: sans-serif; font-size: 8pt">

That seems to have fixed the problem. Thanks!
Brian

Why do you use ";;" instead of ";"?

Thanks in advance,

I have two buttons on a form, "Pause" and "Continue". When "Pause" button is clicked, it should: 1) Stop the background worker; and, 2) Enable the "Continue" button. I have the code below to explicitly enable the "Continue" button. However, it's still not enabled. Anyone can tell me why? Thanks.
