    help needed for clickhandler function

    The clickHandler function was supposed to display the name of the node or element on which the user clicked. By attaching the function to the body element the whole page was "clickable".


    function clickHandler(e) {
    var obj = e.XXXXX;
    alert(obj.XXXXX);
    return false;
    }
    <body onload="return XXXXXXX (event);">

    Can you please tell me what replaces the XXXXXX?

    thx guys im strugglin a bit

            <script type="text/javascript">
                function whichElement(e){
                    var targ;
                    if (!e){
                        var e=window.event;
                    }

                        targ=e.srcElement;
                    }
                    if (targ.nodeType==3) { // defeat Safari bug
                        targ = targ.parentNode;
                    }
                    var tname;
                    tname=targ.tagName;
                    alert("You clicked on a " + tname + " element.");
                }
            </script>
        </head>
        <body onmousedown="whichElement(event)">
            <p>Click somewhere in the document. An alert box will alert the tag name of the element you clicked on.</p>
    
            <h3>This is a header</h3>
            <p>This is a paragraph</p>
            <img src="ball.gif"  alt="Ball" />
        </body>
    </html>
    Modify to suit.
