Hello sherlockturtle!

nomanic's example does what you want, but let's run through a quick example for further proof.

Suppose you have this function:

function AlertOne(){
alert(1);
}

Any time the AlertOne function is called, like this:

AlertOne();
It will be executed and you will of course get a popup (a.k.a., an alert) with the number 1 in it.

So suppose you also have this function:

function AlertTwo(){
alert(2);
}
Similarly, when the function is called using AlertTwo();, it will alert the number 2 just as it says within the function's brackets.

Finally, suppose you have this function:

function AlertOneAndTwo(){
AlertOne();
AlertTwo();
}
Whenever the AlertOneAndTwo function is called, like this:

AlertOneAndTwo();
AlertOne(); and AlertTwo(); will run as they are between the AlertOneAndTwo functions brackets... and so you'll see an alert with 1 and then an alert with 2.

May I see your code?

If you're using Internet Explorer, a yellow bar may appear at the top of the page asking if you want to allow javascript and you'll need to allow it of course if you want it to work.
