just write javascript at that portion of page where you want it to execute while loading.

Suppose you want it to execute after a div tag with id='pre' and before a div with id='nxt';

you can write it like.

regards,
aqif

<div id='pre'>Html goes here</div>
<script type='text/javascript'>
coding goes here
</script>
<div id='nxt'>Html goes here</div>

Open in new window

Another way :


<script language="javascript">
   window.onload = function() {
       init1();
       event2();
       do_something3();
   }
</script>
<body>
<select>
....

Open in new window

anythign in onload will executes 'after' complete LOADING of the page... whereas writing code inside the HTML executes 'during' loading of page.

@agif_g, check other @rgb192 question, the current goal is to show a textarea depend the selected option of a dropdown box.
Maybe it will put your inline code before the selectbox or another object(s) he want to initialize.

@leakim971: I didn't ment that you are wrong. I was just adding the difference between two answers. This is an important point to keep in mind while using anyone of them.

In some cases,

if you want to display a popup after complete loading of a page. You can't use my method to do that, and if you want to do some calculations or changes just before a specific part loads, then onload will fails.

I was trying to clear this. I didn't meant that you are wrong.

regards,
aqif

No worries @aqif_g, I'm for peace, have a good life and a lot of fun. Sorry if you think that I was agressive or something like that, it's not my temperament.
