    multiple function calls from a single js file

    i have 4 images that expand onMouseOver and shrink onMouseOut

    <script src = 'js/size.js'>

    <div id = 'img1' onMouseOver = \"expand(this.id)\" onMouseOut = \"shrink(this.id)\">
    <img src = ...>
    <div id = 'img2' onMouseOver = \"expand(this.id)\" onMouseOut = \"shrink(this.id)\">
    <img src = ...>


    question: when i quickly move the mouse from one image to the other shouldn't i see one expand and one shrink simultaneously?
    i am currently seeing one shrink, then the other expand after.
    on occasion the shrink is skipped and the next image is expanded right away.

    Javascript is a single threaded language, meaning that it can only do one thing at a time. So in your case, the expand function has to finish before the shrink function takes place. The easiest way to create your desired effect probably is to use a sequence of window.setTimeout()'s.

    Show your source code (js and html) please so we can help you better.
