setCapture()

If I use setCapture() on an object, any mouse event that subsequently occurs applies to that object.

Therefore, in the following test code, I have set setCapture() on the menus object at load time.

Therefore, when I click on the document anywhere outside of the menus object, it should disappear.

Why is it not doing this?... Here is my test code, thanks,


<HTML>
<HEAD></HEAD>
<TITLE></TITLE>

<script>

function init()
{
     
     menus.setCapture(true)
}

function click_me()
{
     menus.innerHTML = ""
     menus.releaseCapture()
     alert(menus.innerHTML)
}

</script>
<BODY>

<DIV id="menus" onclick="click_me()" style="background-color:green; top:30; left:30"><span>Teddy</span></DIV>

</BODY onload="init()">
</HTML>

Can you set the onLoad handler in the /body tag?

try this:

   <BODY onload="init()">

instead of this:

   </BODY onload="init()">
