View Full Version : Spawning multiple events

03-17-2003, 08:10 PM
I'm not sure how to go about this. I want to be able to cause two events when someone clicks on a link. For example, go to a new page AND spawn a pop-up. Or, go to a new page AND activate an audio file.

Here's the catch: I can't put the pop-up or audio code in the new page.

Thanks in advance. :thumbsup:

a link?
<a href="" onclick="">blah</a>
i think you can use document.writein to not have the code on a new page.
its best to use writein, in a new window or frame.

<A HREF="#" OnClick="dothis();dothat();">blah</A>

the # is a way of saying do nothing, its for a bookmark use normally but in this case it goes no where. the functions will be executed in the order there in.

But of course you wouldn't really do that would you .. obviously in practise you'd have a real HREF so that it's a normal link for non-javsacript browsers ;)

yes but it goes to the page in the link and doesn't do your javascript for javascript enable browsers
