Rendering HTML prior parsing Javascript

P: n/a
VC
Hi

I'm working on a web site with hard programming in Javascript. ?This
web based application is intended to be used by bank workers who types
very fast.

The problem is: sometimes they type so fast that when they hit the
ENTER key, the javascript related with this key is executed, but the
<input TEXT...associated, that wasnt rendered yet. So we face the
'Object expected' error.

I'd like to know if there's some way of giving priority to rendering
html before rendering or parsing something else.

I know that putting <script></scriptblocks in the end of <html></
htmlblock could help to minimize this, but the way that the web app
was built, sometimes is impossible, because it envolves include
statements, etc.

I hope I was clear. Excuse me my poor English, it's not my first
language.

Thanks in advance.

Rather than using (pseudocode?)
onclick="MyTask()"
try
onclick="setTimeout(MyTask, 100)"

Most major Western European languages, if written simply, are
understood here. If foreigners persist in using English, how shall
others ever learn to read foreign?

Given your misconception that non-English are the foreigners,
you are right.

Zo is het maar net.

Technically he's correct though. Foreigner is an English word, and
therefore must apply only to non-English people ;-)

Technically you are not, as the language spoken or written does not
identify the writer.

And even then, would you say Americans an Britons completely share the same
foreigners?

Technically, just having a bit of fun.

Americans are a special case. When they say foreigners they mean
themselves. Ignore me, it's Friday, I'm talking nonsense and dreaming of
the weekend :)
