    Please help me with this code again sorry guys I just can't code JS :(

    Can you help me with this code it's for a class, but a graduate class. The codes connects to another and I will explain. The book is New Perspectives JavaScript and Ajax, 2nd Edition; the exercise is Tutorial 7 Case Problem #1 page 433-434 if you want to read along. The file french5.htm connects to engfr.js and they are supposed to link together so french5htm shows a list of English and French and there's functions to switch back and for on the site, but my following code is incorrect and I wanted to know if someone can help me; please look thanks!

    french5.htm (not code)

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

    Please use [ code ] and [ /code ] (without the spaces) to properly present (and indent) your code. You can easily do this by using the hash/octothorpe # symbol on top of the text area (not #i)

    You were asked to do this in your previous post.

    You say that the code does not work. In what respect? What error messages do you receive? Have you tried using your error console?

    Var swapFE()
    Var pharse
    .. and others
    Javascript is case sensitive. The var keyword is not capitalised. What is a pharse?

    Var function.setUp
    A function is not a variable.

    And many other errors.

    Why are you taking this graduate course in Javascript programming when by your own admission you are not good at it? I would say that you were all at sea.

    It is not really in your best interests that others do your all or most homework for you. Many people would regard that as cheating. Furthermore your teacher may gain a false and exaggerated idea of your programming capabilities and so not offer you the support you need. Also, if you hand in other people's work which you do not completely understand, then you will start to fall behind and your difficulties will increase.

    Do please read the posting guidelines regarding silly thread titles. The thread title is supposed to help people who have a similar problem in future. Yours is useless for this purpose. You can (and should) edit it to make it more meaningful.

    All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.

    Philip, I know you are an understated person.

    But that one has to be the grandest understatement you've made.

    At sea, without a boat, without a life jacket, with cement boots, with...

    I know it's mean to make comments like this, but WOW! A *graduate* course? And he is on "Tutorial 7"? What in the world did his work for Tutorials 1 through 6 look like?
    Be yourself. No one else is as qualified.
