Post 3+ Months Ago

I am trying to load a page and execute a javascript local to that page in one line of syntax.
I can get the page to load but I cannot get the script to execute even though I get no errors.
I do the following :-

javascript:parent.mainFrame.location.href='./america_ss.html';javascript:parent.mainFrame.setslide(3)"

Am I miss understanding the second option? I have tried just executing the setslide function without the frame option but none have worked.

Can anyone help?
Thanks
Pete

Are you trying to execute a script in the page that is being loaded ? try adding the call to the function to the onload event of the page being loadeds' body tag
Code: [ Select ]
page being loaded.....

function setslide(par){
    doSomthing;
}
</script>
<body onload="setslide(3)">
  1. page being loaded.....
  2. function setslide(par){

The setslide function that you can see sets an array index loaded with paths to images.
I want to use a menu on another page to call one page then execute the setslide(num) function i.e. I'm independantly controlling the num variable from outside the script so that I can play multiple slideshows in one html file.
If there is anyway of doing this I would much appreciate the information.

You can see what i'm trying to do at http://www.geocities.com/sarsonuk/travel.html then select america/sugarloaf in the menu.
The code I'm using at the moment loads the page but wont execute the script even though I get no error.

javascript:parent.mainFrame.location.href='./america_ss.html';javascript:parent.mainFrame.setslide(3)

Thanks inadvance
Pete

I am trying to control a script by setting an integer when loading the webpage i.e
"javascriptarent.mainFrame.location.href='./america_ss.html?frame=3'"

I set the function by

onfiltered="javacript:SetSlide(<%=Request.QueryString['frame']%> )"

Opening the page works fine but setting the javacript function doesn't seem to be working

Does anyone have any suggestions and anyone tell me what the onfiltered function does?

This can be seen at http://www.geocities.com/sarsonuk/travel.html
then go to america/sugarloaf
if the code was executed correctly the Dallas photos should load up but they don't. By clicking the Dallas link you can see what should happen if the code is executed correctly

I have attached the files in question
Thanks in advance

This is your problem right here.
Code: [ Select ]
onfiltered="javacript:SetSlide(<%=Request.QueryString['frame']%> )"


Geocities doesn't support ASP output directives.
If your looking for a free host that supports ASP try http://www.1asphost.com

Florida dude,
I set myself an account mate and have the following webpage http://ee.1asphost.com/sarsonuk

I have uplaoded my website and can see all my files(the zip function is sweet) but when I try and goto the actual page it doesn't load.
I have tried re-registering but it says I'm cool and have already registered so I have no idea what is wrong as it says

ERROR
