Am I using onClick the right way to use this button to close the browser? I have the rollovers OK, so I know I'm good to where I start onClick. I have to use the API calls that are there.

<A HREF="#" ONMOUSEOUT="MM_swapImgRestore()"
            ONMOUSEOVER="MM_swapImage('exit button','','images/exitcrseRd.gif',1)"><IMG
            NAME="exit button" BORDER="0" SRC="images/exitcrseRo.gif" WIDTH="70"
            HEIGHT="100" onMouseOver="MM_controlSound('play','document.CS995919757220','audio/idg_perc-intermed-280.wav')"
            onClick = function Exit(){
    API.LMSCommit();
    API.LMSFinish();
    setTimeout( "parent.self.close()", 1000 );</A>

what you want to do is pull the Exit() function out into the script area (where the MM_swapImg() and MM_swapImgRestore() functions are) and then have

onClick="Exit()"

so, somewhere you have:

----------
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
    function Exit(){
       API.LMSCommit();
       API.LMSFinish();
       setTimeout( "parent.self.close()", 1000 );
    }

    // and other functions
</script>
----------

and your anchor tag is

----------
<A HREF="#" ONMOUSEOUT="MM_swapImgRestore()"
           ONMOUSEOVER="MM_swapImage('exit button','','images/exitcrseRd.gif',1)"><IMG
           NAME="exit button" BORDER="0" SRC="images/exitcrseRo.gif" WIDTH="70"
           HEIGHT="100" onMouseOver="MM_controlSound('play','document.CS995919757220','audio/idg_perc-intermed-280.wav')"
           onClick="Exit()"</A>
----------

Thanks. Would you be interested in reviewing a web page I'm doing and looking at the JS? I'm trying to copy script from an example provided to me by a Learning Management System company, and I'm a JS newbie. I would be very liberal with points if you are interested.

Data: the web page sits in an invisible frameset that holds an API object. The web page makes function calls to the API to do things like get student name, set bookmarks, etc.

Just a review to see if I did anything real dumb would be cool.
