program alert

P: 22
we have a js routine that is triggered by various other mouse and keyboard actions ... this js routine runs in the background at completion exits, all without the user knowing it is running ... we would like to find a routine to load that would watch for this js routine and when the js routine starts an on screen alert (maybe a simple red x) would appear at say screen location 10/10 while the js routine is running .

any suggestions??

hi ...

couldn't you change the called routine to show that hint, a div with absolute positioning and you red x ... so it is irrelevant from where the method is called simply relevant that it is running ...

post your code and what you have tried in case you have problems with it ...

kind regards

how would you want to observe it? may be you give the function an optional parameter and pass that parameter in case you want to watch it ... or do you want to watch it for debug purposes only?

kind regards
