Currently i can modify a style sheet during page load.  However, if i want to do this with javascript i need to make a <script runat=server> tag, but then it automatically think's is asp.net code and it's causing errors.

I am after a way to basically do 1 check and to determine what url(src) to use.  The only way i can get it to work is to just Response.Write the whole tag, but that's not a nice solution.  

Does anyone have any ideas?

Are you using asp.net? If so which version, 1.1 or 2.0?

I'm not sure exactly what you're asking.  You want to modify a style sheet during page load?  Not sure if it helps, but I've linked to an outside javascript file like this before:

<script src="<%= ScriptUrl %>" type="text/javascript"></script>

In this case, ScriptUrl is a public string variable declared in my code-behind.
Hope this helps.

I'm after something like that.  What i was trying to do was:

MyUrl

TheScript.src = MyUrl+TheScript.src;


I dont know what MyUrl is untill the page creation.  So to do that i would need to have a runat=server, and as soon as i go down that path i hit the 'not asp.net' brick wall.


The reason why i tried to do change the url like this, is during development (in VS), i was doing the same with style sheets, and then my page would look funny because the sheets only come into action when the page is loaded.

However, thinkign about it a bit more, i realise that VS doesn't do any javascript linking (like how it modifies with css in the development environment).  So i'll have to try that, it should work.
