    Exclamation Open a link using an onPress event?

    Open a link using an onPress event?

    Probably the most idiotic question ever posted here but how do I make a javascript link on some word (without using a href ...) in a menu

    I have several onmouseover & onmouseout events, and now I need something like onmousepress orso???

    To open a link "home.html" in _self target....


    Plz help, it's probably very simple

    <span onmousedown="location='yourpage.htm'">Try Me</span>

    <td id="mainmenu0" class="out" onmouseover="swapIt('hoofdmenu0','over')"
    onmouseout="swapIt(mainmenu0,'out')" onmousedown="down(mainmenu0,'out','down')"
    onmousedown="location='filosofie.html'">F I L O S O F I E</td>

    What does the onmouseover and onmouseout do to that td cell?

    Post a url to your page so I can see exactly what your trying to do

    mouseover & mouseout does some color changes etc ...

    => http://www.t-bounce.com/zilveravenue/new/

    So as you can see ... when I use a href ... it uses the standard a hover etc settings I set for the rest of the page

    BUT, I need the whole td cell to be clickable, not only the text, so it needs to be done with a javascript, I think ...

    Hope you can help

    The link you posted does not work

    But try putting the onclick in the td opening tag thta will make the whole cell clickable

    <td onclick="location='yourpage.htm'">
