Mixing VBScript, JavaScript and HTML

Below is a snippet of my code. Basically, I want to display a person's name when I mouse over their email address. I've tried using a Javascript function to do this, but I can't. Something tells me that I can't do it this way, but I thought I would bounce it off someone:


<script language="javascript1.1">
function change(html){
  PersonsName.innerHTML=html
}
</script>


<%

MyMouseOVer = onmouseover="javascript:change('Mike Tyson')" MyMouseOut = MyMouseout="javascript:change('')"

<TABLE>
<TR>
   Response.Write "<TD> <a" & MyMouseOver & MyMouseOut & "href=mailto:" & rtrim(ltrim(objRS("EmailAddress"))) &  ">" & rtrim(ltrim(objRS("EmailAddress"))) & "</a>"
   Response.Write "</font>"
   Response.Write "</TD>"

</TR>
</TABLE>

<div id="PersonsName"></div>

%>

Hi

Er... why don't you do this:

<%

Dim MyMouseOver
Dim MyMouseOut
MyMouseOver = "onmouseover=\"javascript:change('Mike Tyson')\""
MyMouseOut = "onmouseout=\"javascript:change('')\""

%>
<TABLE>
<TR>
<%
   Response.Write("<TD> <a href=mailto:" & rtrim(ltrim(objRS("EmailAddress"))) & MyMouseOver & " " & MyMouseOut & ">" & rtrim(ltrim(objRS("EmailAddress"))) & "</a>")
   Response.Write("</TD>")
%>
</TR>
</TABLE>
<div id="PersonsName"></div>

Hi,

Since you said you were using mailid, you can do this.

<a href='mailto:abc@abc.com' title='ABC ABC'>abc@abc.com</a>

Thanks for the responses. Zyloch, I'm not sure what you have is much different than what I have. If I'm missing something, please correct me. In any case, I tried it and same result. I think the problem is that the Javascript is looking for the div with the id=PersonsName, and it cannot find it. Thanks again.

You might want to try adding this function:

function getObj(id) {
   if (document.getElementById) {
      return(document.getElementById(id));
   } else if (document.all) {
      return(document.all[id]);
   } else if (document.layers) {
      return(document.layers[id]);
   } else {
      return false;
}


Then, change your function:

function change(html){
   if (myObj=getObj("PersonsName")) {
     myObj.innerHTM=html.toString();
   }
}

I think Zyloch is right. I am not a jscript wizard but genaerally what I can sujjest is that you have to use the javascript separately and then just write the asp code that actually generaltes the html which will be calling the onmouseover script that will be a function shwing the name. But before that you have to call another javascript function that actually assigns a variable, the name contained in some hidden variable and then being displayed by the second function. I think getting your work this way will solve the problem.
