How to trigger onclick event in NS4 ?

Hi,

I have in my page a "A" tag with an onclick event associated.  I would like to programatically trigger this onclick event.  I do that with the following block of code. It works with IE but not with netscape 4. When i try that code with netscape 4 I have the following error message "mnuTop_2 has no properties !"
Thanks in advance.

Guillaume.


if (ns4==1)
{
   obj = document.layers["divSlideCont"]
   obj = obj.layers["divSlide1"]          
   obj.mnuTop_2.onclick()
}
else
{
   sName = "mnuTop_" + num
   document.all(sName).onclick()
}

or this script for when the link is in a div

<html>
 <head>
  <script language="javascript">
  <!--
   function clickit()
   {
             lObj = document.layers?document.layers["mydiv"].document.links[0]:document.all["link0"];
             if(lObj) lObj.onclick();
   }
  //-->
  </script>
 </head>

 <body>
  <a href="#" onClick="clickit();return false">Fire link 1 in div</a>

  <div id="mydiv" style="position:absolute;visibility:visible;top:200px;left:100px;">
   <a href="" onClick="alert('link 1 clicked');return false" id="link0">Link 1</a>
  </div>
 </body>
</html>

It seems that it is impossible to trigger programatically the onclick event in NS4 !

Does this event you try to fire by script react to real mouse clicks?

 <body>
  <a href="" onClick="alert('link 1 clicked');return false">Link 1</a>
