Why isn't this javascript working inside a "Spry Collapsable Panel"?

Posted on 2008-10-12

My objective here has been to use Javascript for client side sorting of an XML file inside of a "Spry Collapsible Panel" using XSL for the styling. I did successfully recreate (from a tutorial) the appropriate .xsl, .xml and .js 'sample' files.

The Problem::
When I tried to transfer the working 'sample' files I created into the final project, it didn't work. I assume it has something to do with the spry panels because if I move the chunk of code out of the collapsible panel it works.

The link is:

Any help on this is GREATLY appriciated!!!

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="">

<xsl:param name="column" select="'pid'" />

<xsl:template match="/">



<title>MRD Diagnostic</title>

<script language="JavaScript"> document.onmousedown=function (){ if (event.button==2)alert('RightClick disabled!!!'); event.cancelBubble=false; }</script> 

<script src="javascript/common.js" type="text/javascript"  />

<link href="css/common.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

<td onmousedown="javascript:sort('vmsize');">VMSIZE</td>

<td onmousedown="javascript:sort('stat');">STAT</td>

<td onmousedown="javascript:sort('cmd');">CMD</td>


<xsl:if test="$column='pid'">

Since no one is helping you, the best advice I can give you is to DUMP SPRY for any one of a hundred DHTML menus that do indeed work cross browser --

Most people I have tried to help with SPRY cannot get it to work, it seems to be a flawed product.
