Scope of functions and refreshing
Its good to see everyone else is running into the same problems I am. In
response to someones questions about having functions across frames:
I tried the code snippet on Solaris and win95. The function in one frame
cannot be used by another frame. I also tried putting the code in the
document which declares the frames. I put it everywhere in the document, the
code was never picked up.. I agree this is a major flaw.
I have a also have a question on ones ability to refresh the screen.
I have an array on the client which is declared and filled in by the html.
The html has a routine which prints the array to a table. (It simply loops
through the array printing each line with document.write()). This works
great. I then placed buttons on the page to add and remove rows from the
array. If I pass the array back to the server, I can test that the functions
are working correctly and the array is being changed. The problem: how do I
get the screen to refresh and draw the current array. I don't want to do a
server hit (kind of takes away the power of the array) and the array is
created with a cgi script.
There has got to be a way to do this, even if its NYI (pardon my netscapese).
