    Question Expanding this function to accomodate multiple items

    I have the following bit of code:
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

    function ClipBoard()
    {
    holdtext.innerText = copytext.innerText;
    Copied = holdtext.createTextRange();
    Copied.execCommand("Copy");
    }

    </SCRIPT>

    I use it to copy items to the clipboard. It works great when I only have one piece of information to deal with (one "holdtext", one "copytext").

    I want to expand the capabilities of this function in order to accomodate more than one piece of information. Something that will allow me to pass it an integer ("ClipBoard(1);", or "ClipBoard(100334);") instead of it dealing with just one.

    thanks!

    See if this does what you require.

    <script>
    function Copy(n){
    copyme=n
    textRange = document.body.createTextRange();
    textRange.moveToElementText(copyme);
    textRange.execCommand("Copy");
    }
    </script>

    <a href="#null" onclick="Copy(copyit)">Copy To Clipboard</a>

    <P><a href="#null" onclick="Copy(copyit2)">Copy To Clipboard2</a>

    <P><div id=copyit>This would be the first text range to be copied</div>

    <P><div id=copyit2>This is the second range of text to be copied by the same script
    </div>
