    insert text

    I am trying to insert text using a script and having trouble:
    <script>
    var ga[];
    ga[0] = "Joe";
    function dataarrayinsert(){
    return ga[0];
    }
    </script>

    <div>
    <mark>Name: </mark>
    function dataarrayinsert()
    </div>

    I should say so.

    For one, you don't declare an array like you have or use a function like that and how are you to insert something in to a tag if you have no way of hooking the HTML element.

    To declare an array...
    Code:
    var ga = new Array();
    To declare an array with elements already set
    Code:
    var ga = new Array("Joe");
    The short cut method of creating an array
    Code:
    var ga = [];
    The short cut way of making an array with elements
    Code:
    var ga = ["Joe"];
    Declare a function
    Code:
    function someFunction(){
    do stuff
    }
    or
    Code:
    someFunction = function(){
    // do stuff
    }
    Call the function
    Code:
    someFunction();
    Any JavaScript has to be wrapped in html <script></script> tags.

    To add something to the <mark> tag, you would need to give it an id, then hook that id, then manipulate it, eg.

    HTML Code:
    <script>
    var ga = ["Joe"];
    
    function someFunction(t,data){
        o=document.getElementById(t);
        o.innerHTML = o.innerHTML + " "+data;
    }</script>
    <div>
    <mark id="targetID">Name: </mark>
    </div>
    <script>someFunction('targetID',ga[0]);</script>
    I hope that this has been of some benefit to you.
    If your post falls off the page, bump it. ...
    Please remember to wrap any code you have in forum tags:-

    [CODE]...[/CODE] [HTML]...[/HTML] [PHP]...[/PHP]

    If you can't think outside the box, you will be trapped forever with no escape...
