How do you Pass Mouse Events through DIV element to the DIV element beneath it?

I'm using the Microsoft Virtual Earth Version 1 Commercial Control.
I want to make it so you can click on a pinpoint that's plotted on the
map and all mouse events are passed to the map so that the user can
click anywhere on the map (including the pin points) and drag/zoom the
map around.

For those of you who haven't used Virtual Earth:
Basically, there are a bunch on absolutely positioned Div elements. I
basically want to pass all mouse events from one absolutely positioned
div element to the absolutely positioned div element directly beneath
it.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks, in advance.

I'm not sure that there is a standard functionality to pass event from
one absolutely positioned element to another.
Maybe next trick helps you (but it works only in IE).
You can attach event handler to upper div and find lower div in
function that processing event.
For example,

html:
<div onclick="onclic k="ProcessClick (this);" ....

javascript:
function ProcessClick(se nder)
{
//hide upper div
sender.style.di splay="none";
//get div directly beneath clicked one.
var lowerDiv = document.elemen tFromPoint(even t.clientX,
event.clientY);
//restore upper div
sender.style.di splay="block";

//here you have event and div directly beneath clicked one.
......
}

I have set onmousedown to change the cursor, but this setting is ignored (IE 5.5; NN 6.1 on Win 2K Pro) until the mouse is either moved or the mouse button is released. On Opera 7.01, the setting seems to be ignored completely, even when I try with window.setTimeout. So my two questions are: (1) Most important: Is there anything I can do so that I don't have to wait for the next mouse event before the cursor gets repainted. (2) Why...

I am trying to capture mouse events when entering and leaving a DIV layer. This test code works fine with IE 6.0 and Opera 7.21 but fails with Mozilla/Netscape. The strange thing is that the mouse events respond continuously whenever the mouse is moving inside the DIV area. Does anybody have a clue about what is happenning ? J2G

If the drop down is longer then the box is wide then it seems...

Hi all, I am using Firefox and embedding Javascript in html. I understand that we can use mouse events by coding them in the body of html (by creating a button or anything and by adding in the events in the <img> tag). <input id="StdDev Value" name="StdDevButton" type="button" value="Standard Deviation Value" onclick="readStdDevValue()"/>

I track the mouse location like this code: function mousePos(e) { var p = new Object(); if(e) { p.x = e.pageX; p.y = e.pageY; } else { p.x = event.x; p.y = event.y; } ... (show) } document.onmousemove=mousePos; Seems to do fine on many browsers.

Hi, How can I define in Firefox whether the left mouse button is pressed when I move mouse over a html element? The documentation says that "e.button == 0 for standard 'click', usually left button" http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/DOM:event.button Tracing of mouse clicks or mousedown/mouseup events looks not reliable, because mouse can be pressed elsewhere out of the html element (even outside of the browser) and then move over the...
