View Full Version : Combining a conditional with an unconditional body onload

Ok, here's the problem. I have two javascripts, each using the body onload event. Now usually, I'd just do this (http://www.javascriptkit.com/javatutors/eventaction4.shtml), but in this case the trouble is that one of the window.onload's is conditional, i.e. within an if () statement. Here's the code snippet demonstratiung how it appears in the head portion of my page:


function do_onload(){
uniqueidn=window.location.pathname+"firsttimeload"
var alltags=document.all? document.all : document.getElementsByTagName("*")
ccollect=getElementbyClass(alltags, "switchcontent")
statecollect=getElementbyClass(alltags, "showstate")
if (enablepersist=="on" && ccollect.length>0){
document.cookie=(get_cookie(uniqueidn)=="")? uniqueidn+"=1" : uniqueidn+"=0"
firsttimeload=(get_cookie(uniqueidn)==1)? 1 : 0 //check if this is 1st page load
if (!firsttimeload)
revivecontent()
}
if (ccollect.length>0 && statecollect.length>0)
revivestatus()
}

if (window.addEventListener)
window.addEventListener("load", do_onload, false)
else if (window.attachEvent)
window.attachEvent("onload", do_onload)
else if (document.getElementById)
window.onload=do_onload

How do I solve this so that if needed, both onloads are executed and otherwise only the other one (a regular unconditional onload)?

Thanks!

Add the other onload at the end of do_onload() function:


function do_onload(){
...
...
otherOnload();
}

Ok. The second onload is in the body. Does the script in the head know of the script in the body before the body is loaded (assuming the page is loaded sequentially)?

To save some time, here is all the relevant code:

Yes because even if it's in the head, the function is called when the document has loaded. So just call getcontent_height() at the end of do_onload().

Hmm... for some reason it still does not seem to be doing things right. I've uploaded the whole file here (http://www.albertin.ch/pestalozzi/test.html). What I'd like to see is that when you expand an item within the box the scroll mechanism adjusts. Is there a simple way to fix this?

Thanks for your help, by the way, it is much appreciated.

It's doing things right, it's doing what it's scripted to do. What you're expecting is not in the features of the 2 scripts you combined.
