CSS, mouseover link, change multiple classes at once.

I have some code... (obviously)

I have menu buttons and page borders that al all CSS based.  I need borderLeft, borderBottom and borderRight to all switch to a different class (i.e. borderLeft_over{  }) when the menu button is moused-over.

JavaScript is not my strong point.

Oh...  The border classes are all used inside a table cell.  <td class="borderBottom"> and the CSS tells it to align the background (border image) to the sides.

To change the class of an object in JS you use the object.className property. If you need to change the class of multiple objects then you'd need a function to handle changing them one at a time. You will also need an ID value of the object to get at it.

<td id="tdObject" class="borderBottom">

<script language="JavaScript">
var objTD = document.getElementById("tdObject");
objTD.className = "newClassName";
</script>

Okay, I understand that clearly.  Meaning I'd need to create the variable and new class name for all the borders in the JS, but what about actually using the mouse-over?

If you have a function for changing the classes say:

function menuOver() {
//change all the desired classes here
return true;
}

...to keep it simple have another function that resets it back on a mouseout
function menuOut() {
//change all the desired classes back
return true;
}

then you can add the events in whichever object needs the events to fire.

<td id="tdObject" class="borderBottom" onMouseOver="return menuOver();" onMouseOut="return menuOut();">


Does that help?
