View Full Version : Javascript and NIS 2007 issues?

Feb 16th, 2007, 04:37 PM
I have a simple HTML page that calls a .js file. This runs with no problem on my laptop but has issues on my desktop PC. My desktop has Norton Internet Security 2007. I have read that NIS may have ad blocking quirks that alter javascript code. I do not see any undesired code in my HTML page when I right-click and "View Source". The script works fine if I include it directly in the HTML file.

Here is the .js code

function greetGuest()
alert("Welcome to the JavaScript development site");

function getName(ctrl)
var guestName = prompt("Please enter your name. "); //get the guest's name
document.getElementById(ctrl).value = guestName; //transfer guest name to txt1

function changeBackground(ctrl)
var select = document.getElementById(ctrl);
var index = select.selectedIndex;
var selectedTxt = select.options[index].text;
var selectedVal = select.options[index].value;
var msg = "The " + (index+1) + " option is selected. \n";
msg += "It is the option " + selectedTxt;
msg += " and has the value " + selectedVal + ".";
msg += " Is this correct?";
var confirmVal = confirm(msg);
if (confirmVal == true)
case "black":
case "white":

Here is the HTML page.

I hope this doesn't come out looking funny. My question is, does anyone know what could cause this phenomenon?

Again. On the laptop it works either in script or as a src file. On desktop it only works in script tags.

Any help is appreciated.

Above, I put HTML comments in because I was not sure how it would be handled. these do not exist in the orinal html file.
