Another Error Object Expected ?

Hello all, I am new here and hope some kind, smarter than me person can help.
I am getting the error object expected with the following code:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. function click(e); 
here the error says it expected '{' at Char:18

External js code for this is here:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. function click(e) {
  2.     if (document.all) {
  3.         if (event.button == 2) {
  4.             alert(message);
  5.             return false;
  6.         }
  7.     }
  8.     if (document.layers) {
  9.         if (e.which == 3) {
  10.             alert(message);
  11.             return false;
  12.         }
  13.     }
  14. }
  15. if (document.layers) {
  16.     document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEDOWN);
  17. }
  18. document.onmousedown=click;
Thank you for your help.

hi ...

welcome to TSDN ...

i assume its the problem with your homepage? you mustn't write the following code, as you can see this is syntactically wrong:

[HTML]<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
function click(e);

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. document.onmousedown = click
already assigns the eventhandling during the external js includes parsing ... simply remove the useless statements

kind regards

thanks much for the fast reply.
I did what you said and that cleared up the one error, but I am still missing something.

I still get the object required error for line 43 which is blank so I would think that I still need something after

function click(e); (this is line 42)

I am very new to javascript.

so i assume you have removed the following lines?

[HTML]<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
function click(e);
kind regards

Yes, thanks to your wonderful help, I removed that and it still works fine without an error.

The very weird thing is I still get one error on line 43 which is blank. No code on it but IE7 still shows an error.
very strange.

could you post the script that throws the error? because you have removed the lines ... so what is before and behind it?

kind regards

I get this error on every page on my site. It is the only error.

Line: 43
Char: 11
Error: Object Expected
Code: )
URL: http://www.better-skin-care.com

Below is my code in Dreamweaver 8.

<body> is on line 40

<div id="header"> is on line 45
<!--======================== BEGIN COPYING THE HTML HERE ==========================-->
<img src="images/header22.png" alt="" name="header22" width="960" height="85" border="0" id="header22" />
<!--========================= STOP COPYING THE HTML HERE =========================-->

The line the error refers to is blank.
So I just don't know how to fix a blank line.

thanks again,

Try running it through another validator like the w3c.org site and see where they report your error. this might suggest a line that contains code.
