hi all,

i have another problem. in my website, i have an option to create divs dynamically. the problem is that i want to do something when you click on one of those divs. i thought this would do the trick
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. document.getElementById("MyDiv").onClick = "MyFunction()"
unfortunatly, it doesn't. :(

does anyone know how it should be done?

ok, that works. but now i need to send an argument when i execute the function.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. document.getElementById("MyDiv").onclick = MyFunction('foo');
this doesn't seem to work since it triggers the event when i create it but not when i click on the div.

You need to set it to a function object rather than a function call which is why I removed the parenthesis earlier. Try this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. document.getElementById("MyDiv").onclick = function() {MyFunction('foo');}

I have a form with a number of text boxes, comboboxes etc. What I would like to do is create an event handler for the "mouseenter" event for each of the controls whereby I display information about the control they just entered (sort of like an extended tooltip). Now, I can certainly create a separate mouseenter event for each control (too much work, and not very clever), but what I would like to do is somehow create one event that would...
