i start out with:

<DIV ID="LEFT" style="position:absolute"></DIV>

and with

function populate_div(int){
document.all.LEFT.innerHTML = document.all.LEFT.innerHTML + webpage[int];
if(++int < webpage.length){setTimeout("populate_div(" + int +")",250);}
}
(where webpage is an array with some html in it)

i am trying to insert a <table> into the <div> now the html if it is hardcoded into the div looks fine but trying to add it after the fact i dont get the formatting is there a way to call a refresh on the div itself?

thanks

c0s: I clearly have my questioning hat on today but its not clear why you'd want to do this. You are going to have to do quite a bit of work to make this cross browser compatible (although the experts here are up to the job of helping you on that front) and I'm just wondering if there might be a simpler way of doing what you want.

actually late last night i figured it out and i will figure out the cross-browser thing if i wish but i am not sure how important that is for me

any how the way i did this was there is a <div> on the right that i set the innerTEXT to each line and the <div> on the left i set the innerHTML to the innerTEST of the one on the right so i get the you-see-the-code-as-it-builds effect its pretty cool too, check it out at http://www.iamageek.org

Just had to say that that is a crazy looking site man! With the script running along the side in a frame. Kind of neat but I wonder as Emps did, if there is a better solution to the problem?

cOs, I can't see the site either. I'm getting an HTTP 500 error when I try to open www.imageek.org

The cross browser way to update the contents of a div is as follows:

Say you have a div called "myDiv" and a content string called "content".

IE:
// You must add this new line character to fix a bug on Mac IE
content=content+"\n"
document.all.myDiv.innerHTML = content

NN4:
document.myDiv.document.writeln(content)
document.myDiv.document.close()

NN6:
document.getElementById("myDiv").innerHTML = content

Note that using innerHTML is *not* standards compliant but so many coders have become attached to it that NN6 decided to include it in their latest release anyway. I am also guilty of being too lazy to use the compliant method yet because innerHTML is just so convenient.

I hope that helps and I hope the link gets fixed so I can see your site.

Well I can access the site from home but I can't see anything that resembles CPrompt's description (IE5.5/Win).

Bugimus> it is iAmageek.org

others> well it seemed i was having issues with the method i was using to get info out of the db now that i changed that you shouldnt get any errors though sometimes the images dont load, just hit refresh. i will incorporate a parsing the in the asp so that the images get preloaded in a bit but for now this works
