I have little to no experience in Java, and I have been asked to link each picture produced by this script to page called "promo.html". Is there a way to just add something to the existing script to accomplish this?

// JavaScript Document

/*
usage:
make sure to use the same id and then add all the randon images in the array list below.
<img class="mainBg" id="randPic" src="img/bg_homemain1.jpg" alt="">
*/
	//had to disable this because of a confliction with another script.
	//window.onload = choosePic;
	//this chooses a random pic for the main page.
	var myPix = new Array("images/Rendering-Home-option-1.jpg","images/Rendering-Home-option-2.jpg","images/Rendering-Home-option-3.jpg");
	
	function choosePic()
	{
		randomNum=Math.floor((Math.random() * myPix.length));
		document.getElementById("randPic").src=myPix[randomNum];
	}

So what you want to do is, at the click event of any image, it has to go to that html page

make it


document.getElementById("randPic").onclick=function(){
   location.href = "promo.html";
}

function choosePic()
      {
            randomNum=Math.floor((Math.random() * myPix.length));
            document.getElementById("randPic").src=myPix[randomNum];
      }

Just add the following line in the function:
document.getElementById("randPic").onclick= function event(onclick) {window.location="promo.html";};

another way to do it is

function goToPromo()
{
   location.href = "promo.html";
}

document.getElementById("randPic").addEventListener("click",goToPromo,false);

Perhaps I was just getting the code in the wrong place, but I was not able to get gurvinder's code to work. I was able to get kostantinos' to work on the first try. I will award the points there. Thank you very much for your help, both of you.
