Open a link using an onPress event?

Probably the most idiotic question ever posted here but how do I make a javascript link on some word (without using a href ...) in a menu :)

I have several onmouseover & onmouseout events, and now I need something like onmousepress orso???

To open a link "home.html" in _self target....


Plz help, it's probably very simple:rolleyes:

Try this

<span onmousedown="location='yourpage.htm'">Try Me</span>

In fact you could any mouse event

and how do I set the target? because that's my biggest problem, it needs to be _self

pff why doesn't the following work as a link:

<td id="mainmenu0" class="out" onmouseover="swapIt('hoofdmenu0','over')"
onmouseout="swapIt(mainmenu0,'out')" onmousedown="down(mainmenu0,'out','down')"
onmousedown="location='filosofie.html'">F I L O S O F I E</td>

:(

What does the onmouseover and onmouseout do to that td cell?

Post a url to your page so I can see exactly what your trying to do

mouseover & mouseout does some color changes etc ...

So as you can see ... when I use a href ... it uses the standard a hover etc settings I set for the rest of the page

BUT, I need the whole td cell to be clickable, not only the text, so it needs to be done with a javascript, I think ...

Hope you can help

The link you posted does not work

But try putting the onclick in the td opening tag thta will make the whole cell clickable

<td onclick="location='yourpage.htm'">
