Help Please with Button Actions - JavaScript

P: n/a
Can any one please help me...I am new to JavaScript and I have been
struggling with this code for days now and can't figure it out.

I would like to get the Buttons to correspond with the action to
either a) generate numbers b) Prompts a user to locate a web page c)
go to previous page in history list d) Loads next page in history list
e) Promps the user for a URL and loads the web page in a new window f)
and Re-Sizes the window.

Please view my coding below, the only button that seems to work is
'Print'.

What am I doing incorrectly here? Can anyone tell me please or help me
solve this problem?

Thanks so much....

view below. I fixed up your code. Please compare your code to mine
below and you will what I did.

Please note that JavaScript is case sensitive and does not like when you
create function and than call another function with the same name.

If you have any other questions, let me know or post to the group.

Lots. See code below. Tested in Mozilla and IE.
Fix that random number function, too. It seems to only return 0 or 100.
The home button still doesn't work. I don't think there's a window.home.
Check into that. Same for the find button.
Forward won't work unless there is actually a page forward in history.
Vice versa with back.

Commenting only on this function
[M in Math should be capitalized both times !!!!]

function DrawNumbers( ){

document.frmNumbers["txtnum"+x].value =
Math.round(Math.random()*100;

}

This should do the same

I would have suggested something similar, though probably using function
Random (see FAQ 4.22, as you know). BTW, that function has neither the
missing ) nor the wrong Method of Math.

But the OP wishes for a Draw, and the essence of a Draw is that numbers
cannot repeat. The chance of a repeat above must exceed 10%, at a
guess.

A Draw is in essence a partial Deal, and if the FAQ is searched for
that, sec. 4.22 will be found, with a suitable Link.

Thank you so much for all the help on this. With a bit of playing
around, I finally got it to work.
