hi,

Can anyone tell me why the onmouseup is not firing when I dpress the mouse button, drag it, it will not fire the onmouseup event. here is my code

    window.onload=function()
    {
                //Apply all the events
           document.onmousemove = function(e){MouseCo(e);}
        for(i=0;i<document.getElementsByTagName('DIV').length;i++)
        {
             document.getElementsByTagName('Div')[i].onmousedown = function(e){MoveElement(e);}
             document.getElementsByTagName('Div')[i].onmouseup = function(){alert("hello");}

        }
    }
   
    function MoveElement(e)
    {
       e = e || window.event;
          DT = e.target || e.srcElement;
    }

Check this:

    window.onload=function(){
              //Apply all the events
        document.onmousemove = function(e){MouseCo(e);}
        var div = document.getElementsByTagName('DIV');
        for(i=0;i<div.length;i++) {
            div[i].onmousedown = MoveElement;
            div[i].onmouseup = function(){alert("hello");}
            div[i].onmouseout = function(){this.onmouseup()};
        }
    }
 
    function MoveElement(){
         DT = this;
    }

Zvonko, thank you for this. I have amended, and it fires on every mouseout

    window.onload=function(){
              //Apply all the events
        document.onmousemove = function(e){MouseCo(e);}
        var div = document.getElementsByTagName('DIV');
        for(i=0;i<div.length;i++) {
            div[i].onmousedown = MoveElement;
            div[i].onmouseup = MouseUp;
            //div[i].onmouseout = function(){this.onmouseup()};
        }
    }
 
    function MoveElement(){
         DT = this;
    }
    function MouseUp()
    {
          alert(this.id);
    }

how can I stop this? I will be dragging the element, so effectively it will not be a mouseout until they mouseup is fired so should that sort it any way?

It seams we forgotten this one.
Here the changed script:


    window.onload=function(){
              //Apply all the events
        document.onmousemove = function(e){MouseCo(e);}
        document.onmouseup = MouseUp;
        var div = document.getElementsByTagName('DIV');
        for(i=0;i<div.length;i++) {
            div[i].onmousedown = MoveElement;
         }
    }
