    get data from hidden field

    Hi -
    I have a dhtml menu in an external file (mainmenu.js). I want the menu to get a value (session id) from a hidden field in the footer of the html/php page the menu is on and include it on the menu links. I've included the mainmenu code below... how do I get the value so that I can use it in the links (as the "osCsid")? THanks!

    Code:
    //----------DHTML Menu Created using AllWebMenus PRO ver 3.1-#508---------------
    var awmMenuName='mainmenu';
    var awmLibraryPath='/awmData-mainmenu';
    var awmImagesPath='/awmData-mainmenu';
    var awmSupported=(navigator.appName + navigator.appVersion.substring(0,1)=="Netscape5" || document.all || document.layers || navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Opera')>-1)?1:0;
    if (awmAltUrl!='' && !awmSupported) window.location.replace(awmAltUrl);
    if (awmSupported){
    var awmMenuPath;
    if (document.all) mpi=document.all['awmMenuPathImg-mainmenu'].src;
    if (document.layers) mpi=document.images['awmMenuPathImg-mainmenu'].src;
    if (navigator.appName + navigator.appVersion.substring(0,1)=="Netscape5" || navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Opera')>-1) mpi=document.getElementById('awmMenuPathImg-mainmenu').src;
    awmMenuPath=mpi.substring(0,mpi.length-16);
    var nua=navigator.userAgent,scriptNo=(nua.indexOf('Safari')>-1)?7:(nua.indexOf('Gecko')>-1)?2:((document.layers)?3:((nua.indexOf('Opera')>-1)?4:((nua.indexOf('Mac')>-1)?5:((nua.indexOf('Konqueror')>-1)?6:1))));
    document.write("<SCRIPT SRC='"+awmMenuPath+awmLibraryPath+"/awmlib"+scriptNo+".js'><\/SCRIPT>");
    var n=null;
    awmzindex=1000;
    }
    
    var awmSubmenusFrame='';
    var awmSubmenusFrameOffset;
    var awmOptimize=0;
    function awmBuildMenu(){
    if (awmSupported){

    You have to pick it up in a "onload" event handler or make sure your menu script is loaded into the page AFTER the hidden field is loaded. Either way, the key is that your script has to pick it up after it's been added to the page and the value is therefore available.

    Oh yeah, look for a different menu when you can. That particular menu is slow in initializing itself making it seem like your pages take a lot longer to load than they really do.
