document.getElementById stopped working after adding an iframe

    I had a page that does some event setup on window.onload:

    function prepEvents()
    {
    document.getElementById("menumap_sales").onmouseover =
    swapMenuSales;
    // etc
    }

    window.onload = prepEvents;


    worked great, until the page where this javascript src is loaded now
    contains an iframe. It seems that the document.getElementById() call
    is returning null now. If I remove the iframe, it all works again.

    Presumably it's something to do with having multiple documents now,
    but how do I access the one I want?

    Thanks for your help!

    only one ID of same name in a page !

    you can't acces file loaded in iframes if this file is from another
    domain that the main file.

    yep there are no repeated ids.

    > you can't acces file loaded in iframes if this file is from another

    agreed. Both are in the root of my site. HTML goes like this:
    <html>
    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="script/
    menu.js"></script>
    <body>
    <form>
    <div id="pagebody">
    <div id="loginlinks">
    <iframe src="chat.html" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"
    id="chatFrame" name="chatFrame" />
    </div>
    </div>
    </body>
    </html>

    Could it be something to do with timing? i.e. the onload event is
    being called before the DOM object is ready???

    I'm completely at a loss at the moment; adding an iframe should be the
    easy bit...

    Help!
    TIA,
    AC

    what is this opening form tag ?
    (with nowhere a closing one)

    is it the main page which gets the onload function ?

    I see nowhere the element 'menumap_sales' ... !

    Validate the HTML first.

    My friend who works at Yahoo came to me for help last week. All of a
    sudden things "stopped working" so she asked for my help.

    It turned out that there was another developer who "owned" the
    autocomplete part of the app. Yahoo does everything in a totally
    retarded way status reports, no testing, and isolated cowboy coding.
    They call this "Scrum" and balance it out with lots of middle
    management.

    The autocomplete code had something along the lines of:

    document.body.innerHTML = "<div id='wrapper'>" +
    document.body.innerHTML +
    "</div>";

    This caused the problem of all nodes refs being wiped out, so where
    she had:-

    var button = document.getElementById('button'),
    title = document.getElementById('title');
    bar.onclick = function() {
    // Error: title is null or not an object
    title.style.display = "";

    </script>

    <script src="autocomplete.js"></script>

    An IFRAME is perfectly capable of adding such scripts to the page, and
    it's entirely possible that your iframe has a script that does that.

    Yeah. Post the real code.

    The `<head>' start tag of the `head' _element type_ is optional, as is the
    `</head>' end tag of the same.

    <http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/struct/global.html#h-7.4.1>
    <http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/index/elements.html>

    >>> <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="script/
    >>> menu.js"></script>
    >>> <body>
    >>> <form>

    >> what is this opening form tag ?

    It is not Valid, the required `action' attribute is missing.

    <http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/interact/forms.html#edef-FORM>

    But in this case both appear to be unnecessary.

    If true, this would shed some serious doubt about the code quality of YUI.
    (I should probably peer-review it soon.)

    OK here's all the code (I'd omitted repetitions and the obvious bits
    for brevity). It's come from an ASP.net page so you'll have to work
    around the asp bits I'm afraid...

    Thanks for shortening. Anyway, I doubt that anybody will look into it.

    I don't see anyone asking for it. Especially not me, whose posting
    you have nonsensically replied to. Please read and take heed of
    <http://www.jibbering.com/faq/#FAQ2_3>.

    > It's come from an ASP.net page so you'll have to work

    You will have to work through it by yourself, I'm afraid. Understand that
    there is no point in your posting server-side code if you have a client-side
    problem like this one.

    And there is no point in serving XHTML to a UA that does not support it,
    like MSHTML. (However, I don't know if XHTML is a requirement for ASP .NET.)

    Yes, indeed. You must be kidding (and badly at that), dumping core here.

    > Thanks for the assistance,


    ISTM you are looking for someone to do your homework, in their
    free time, for free. This is definitely the wrong place for that.

    I don't know if you've read the original post, but it asked how to
    reference elements when the page includes an iframe. The original code
    was posted to demonstrate how elements were being referenced in the
    page without an iframe, that worked. The long code was posted when it
    was asked for. Maybe I replied to the wrong person - apologies if
    that's the case.

    Never mind, thanks anyway.

    I don't know if you actually read my post as you are repeating much the same
    errors that were pointed out to you already, most notably none-quoting.

    Garrett's request to "Post the real code." does not include the request to
    post *all* the code, including the irrelevant parts. And it would _not_
    mean the *server-side code*. At least not when using common sense. Think
    about it: Would you actually want to spend your free time to dig through
    hundreds of irrelevant uncommented lines in order to find the relevant ones
    maybe, provided your NetNews user agent could handle that?

    > Maybe I replied to the wrong person


    You replied to the wrong posting as it did not contain such a request.
    Learn how threaded discussions work.

    > - apologies if that's the case.


    Accepted, I think.

    > Never mind, thanks anyway.


    You're welcome, I think.

    Perhaps could you when you post (and answer) copy a part (significative
    part) of the previous post.
    As we could understand of what i's question, matter, subject ...

    No, nothing was worked in previous code : no JS ... !

    Not time by now
    I'll try to see it this evening (6 hours)

    But if it would have been possible to have the code seen by a browser it
    would be much better.
