WordPress how to stimulate body onload

Hi

I wish to display an openlayers map within Wordpress

Usually the openlayers JavaScript is fired from
<body onload="init()" >

Open in new window

 

How do I stimulate this in WordPress?

So A [Shortcode] on my page will point to the PHP / html markup where I will enqueue the necessary scripts but how do I trigger the "init()" function?

If you have jquery installed you can simply insert a script tag that fires init on document ready.

<script type="text/javascript">$(document).ready(function() { init(); });</script>

Open in new window
