Hello, I dont do much client side scripting.  With the code below the background is changed onmouseover but it flickers back and forth between the two images when I move my mouse around the div.  how can i fix this?


        function itemMouseOver(DivID) {
            document.getElementById(DivID).style.background = 'url(../Images/Webmasters/MyLinks/ItemBg_OnMouseOver.jpg)';
        }
        function itemMouseOut(DivID) {
            document.getElementById(DivID).style.background = 'url(../Images/Webmasters/MyLinks/ItemBg_OnMouseOut.jpg)';
        }


<div class="MyLinksItemDiv" id="10" onmouseover="itemMouseOver(10);" onmouseout="itemMouseOut(10);">

Thanks!

Try something like this:



//
function itemMouseOver(DivID) {
	var d = document.getElementById(DivID);
	if (d.style.background != 'url(../Images/Webmasters/MyLinks/ItemBg_OnMouseOver.jpg)') {
	{
		d.style.background = 'url(../Images/Webmasters/MyLinks/ItemBg_OnMouseOver.jpg)';
	}
}
//
function itemMouseOut(DivID) {
	var d = document.getElementById(DivID);
	if (d.style.background != 'url(../Images/Webmasters/MyLinks/ItemBg_OnMouseOut.jpg)') {
	{
		document.getElementById(DivID).style.background = 'url(../Images/Webmasters/MyLinks/ItemBg_OnMouseOut.jpg)';
	}
}

Sorry, typo in the second function:


//
function itemMouseOut(DivID) {
	var d = document.getElementById(DivID);
	if (d.style.background != 'url(../Images/Webmasters/MyLinks/ItemBg_OnMouseOut.jpg)') {
	{
		d.style.background = 'url(../Images/Webmasters/MyLinks/ItemBg_OnMouseOut.jpg)';
	}
}

Hello, that did not fix it.  Thanks for tring though.  I ended up using :
        var LastDiv = 0
        function itemMouseOver(DivID) {
            if (LastDiv != DivID) {
                if (LastDiv != 0) {
                    document.getElementById(LastDiv).style.background = 'url(../Images/Webmasters/MyLinks/ItemBg_OnMouseOut.jpg)';
                }
                document.getElementById(DivID).style.background = 'url(../Images/Webmasters/MyLinks/ItemBg_OnMouseOver.jpg)';
                LastDiv = DivID
            }
        }
