Default Dynamic HTML <<Events>>

Hi,

I would like to dynamically add an Event call to an HTML object (say INPUT object). How do I do this?

Consider an example:
<INPUT type="button" onclick="javascript:fnDoAction()" id="btnAdd">
...
...
btnAdd.onclick = "javascript:fnDoAction2()" //This does not work!!

regds,
Babloo

The btnAdd button is not directly visible in the page. You'll need to get a reference to it, using document.getElementById or by using formName.buttonName. The following code shows you how to accomplish this. It uses the onload event of the <body> tag to set the dynamic event for the button. When you click the button, method 2 will fire instead of method 1:
Code:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
    <head>
    <title>Dynamic Events</title>
    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
        function fnDoAction()
        {
            alert('I am action 1');
        }

        function DoAction2()
        {
            alert('I am action 2');
        }

        function SetDynamicEvent()
        {
            document.getElementById('btnAdd').onclick = DoAction2;
            // Alternatively, uncomment the next code line. Old code style
            // but cross-browser.
            // frmDynamicEvents.btnAdd.onclick = DoAction2;
        }
    </script>
</head>
<body onload="JavaScript:SetDynamicEvent();">
    <form name="frmDynamicEvents">
        <input type="button" onclick="JavasSript:fnDoAction()" id="btnAdd" value="Click Me">
    </form>
</body>
</html>
HtH,

Imar
