In Java script, when I click on an object, it calls a function. But I actually need to run the function of another object because it passes the 'this' property of the object (I believe it's a DIV if that matters. So, when I click on object A, can I call object B's event?

ObjectA onClick=(ObjectB(onmouseup="DoSomething(this)")

Can I do that? Or, how can I get the 'this' of objectB to objectA's event?

Thanks in advance

Yes you can call Object B event from Object A by using document.getElementById('ObjectBid')
