Specifically, window.onload appears to fire before all the elements of the page have been rendered. As the difference is consistent across IE/Moz/Opera, I'm assuming it's deliberate - can anyone point me towards where this behaviour of window.onload is defined in the documentation? TIA. Code:
The function basically just sets the original values of fields so that I can determine if a field has been changed or not, which aleviates unnec. sql update on the backend..
I'm trying to get a popup working on my site. I use headers and was wondering if there is a way to put the onload outside of the BODY tag? My header has the BODY tag in it. I only want the popup to come up on one page and not all the pages that use my header.
I have created a page that takes a person to another page automatically:
However, the script waits for the entire page to load before actually taking the person to the other page. What I need to do is to have a script that takes the visitor to the target page as soon as the page appears (without waiting for ads to load completely). How can this be done?
Just wondering if anyone knows if it's bad practice to put multiple body tags within one document? I'm using a template system (php) that loads template files into a main template (already containing a body onLoad()), and the content files also have a body onLoad() preloading functions intact. It seems to be working but wanted to know if there is anything wrong with this? What about broswer specific issues?
What I'm doing is a preview of numerous images in an iframe and I want to resize the iframe to match each picture. Normally I'd use the 'onload' (on the src-page holding the image in the iframe) attrubute, but it's not called until the picture has finished loading. I'd like to resize the iframe before (or at the same time) the image starts loading.
I have a script that I have been using for a while that works with 3 sets of div tags. The first is visible and the second two are hidden. Using a select menu you can swap which div tag is visible by selecting that option.
Now this works fine using <body onload="opts();"> to call the function the only problem is that the page I am running this script on has a lot of images and the second two tabs are visible until the page has completely finished loading. This is only for a matter of a second or two but still a problem.
1. The script isn't functional (can't swap visibility on div tags) until the entire page has finished loading. -- I can live with this if I have to
Here is the code I am using:

Is there a substitute to <body onload="validate();"> i.e. I need to call a JS Function on load of a page, but without using <body onload> I've tried window.onload, but it didn't work. Is there a way to do this?
I'm building an ecommerce store that will not allow me access to the <body tag... Is there any way to load the onLoad js call another way?
I tried putting a layer with a high z-index and a clear pixel stretched out in it... I've tried the call as onLoad and as mouseover... I can't get it to work. What am I missing? If you'd like to see my mess, it's here:
I have dynamically named form elements set in divs based on a server-side language. I am displaying these using DHTML in a display:none, display:block format.
Due to some code (and deadline) issues I do not have the total number of form elements set by the time the body tag is run. I wanted to have a script tag later on in the document which reads something like:
Well the function will return a value depending on the users installed toolbars. Unfortunatly this works only for Internet Explorer, I have tried on FireFox and it doesnt work :S Any way to load a function on startup with firefox?
Is there any way of fading in some text without using <body onLoad()>?
I need something that works like this
</head> <body onLoad="startfade('fade');"> <p> <span id="fade" style="visibility: hidden;">This text needs to fade in 8 seconds after page load!</span><br> test </p> </body></html>
