View Full Version : Change statusbar message

Hi there,

I've got a very simple question: how do I change the message in the statusbar at the bottom of my browser window. I thought I knew how to do this, but the following doesn't seem to work. I use IE 6.0.


// onload
<body topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" onload="window.status='Onload message'; return true;">

// onmouseover

function ButtonOver(what) {

document.images[what].src = 'graphics/buttons/'+what+'_over.jpg';
window.status = 'string'+what;

Where do I go wrong??

Thanx, Michiel

Please forget the previous post ... It already works, I guess I had a problem with refreshing the page :o

My apologies ... Michiel
