setTimeout problem




Hello,

At the bottom of this page:

http://www.samengoedkoopbellen.nl/

is a link that pops a window and a form. On submission, a setTimeout is fired which is implemented to combat the tragically long CGI delays at this client's server. However, the setTimeout is not firing. The delays are quite long.

Can you spot where things go awry?

Thanks

Init timers in the index.htm, not in the framed pages !!

Pardon me? Could you elaborate somewhat, Win32?

Thanks,

Why on earth don't you put it before the
document.form1.submit()
in senddata???

Anyway, I do get the dank, but not within 5 seconds

Try for fun to add
alert('submitting');
just in front of
document.form1.submit()
 
I wonder if the validation script sucks (since it is not one of mine ;-)

What do you mean with that forst post, man?
Michel PlungjanIT ExpertCommented:
Please change

document.form1.submit()

in function senddata

to

setTimeout('parent......',5000);
document.form1.submit()

why do you execute a function in a hidden frame instead of the location change directly???

setTimeout('top.location=\'dank.html\'',5000);
document.form1.submit()

Michel, ik vind 't erg nobel van je, maar please don't try to educate me. Die snippets hierboven, ik heb geen idee wat ik nou moet doen. Ok, ik moet e.e.a. veranderen, maar wat is dat tweede gedeelte??

Ik wil geen JS proberen te doen, want er gaat te veel tijd inzitten - simpelweg omdat het zwoegen is voor me. En als ik dan wat probeer, dan krijg je dergelijke technische fouten als hierboven. Kortom, ik KAN het niet. Kun je 't a.u.b. uitstippelen voor me?

Hopeloosje.

In europe.html, please locate the script:

alert(error_message)
  } else {
    document.form1.submit()
  }

change it to

alert(error_message)
  } else {
    setTimeout('parent.hidden.go()',5000)
    document.form1.submit()
  }

and remove the

onSubmit="setTimeout('parent.hidden.go()',5000)"

from the form
