Hi,

I have a web page where the the body tag doesn't execute the onload command.

I have created a blank page that has the same command and it runs fine - any ideas?

My page is at www.csa-northwest.com/idsun/indexlayers.htm - it does have layers - could that be it?

code: <body onload="alert('onload works')">

Regards

Charlie

The reason is because you have another onload event being called which takes presidence.

window.onload=getcontent_height

if you comment out the above line you will notice that your onload event in the body tag now works.
