InSiDeR: Is there a JavaScript error being generated? I can't be sure but I wonder if a problem might occur if you don't have the full 39 images - I'm not sure but I know I developed an error in a script once and it was due to something like this.

A bit of info to you and those reading along: It's always better to post a URL to a real web page than to just post your code. I, personally at least, want to see the problem rather than see the code that caused the problem. Besides, when I see a post that's more than a few paragraphs, and it's just a question, I'm not compelled to read it, and I skip over it.

InSiDeR: Thats certainly helped. The error is on line 229 (object expected) and line 229 by my estimate is the last of your links for roll overs:

quote:
<a href="dtips.html" onMouseover="swap(9,29); window.status='DHTML .....



This would suggest to me that my guess was right and when you put the rest of the links in the problem should fix itself (I had a similarish problem and it took me quite a while to work out).

If it doesn't or it throws up another problem then you know where we are.

First of all, when you have problems on a page you do *not* want this line active:

window.onerror=null;

This will prevent certain errors from being reported. Once you have the page working perfectly, then and only then uncomment that line. When you get a script error in IE you'll get a little yellow sign at the bottom left status bar of the browser. Double click that to see what line number and character the error occurred on and its description.

Second of all, you have a sneaky little coding error that I think you will find is causing most of your trouble and it is here:

names = new Array("news" , "archive" . . . , "htmltips , "dhtmltips . . .

You left out the double quote after htmltips! Very bad. Fix that and see if things improve.

Emps: I have IE 5.5 and the more I MouseOver my links the wider the width bar gets and there is no javascript error but you can get view source and see it.

The complex world of Web Programming is sometimes very overwhelming

<edit>errr I had to fix the typo on overwhelming because I spelt it overwelming </edit>

It was lotiss' description that got it for me 'a whole buncha times'. I waved the cursor over the whole navigation and lo and behold the page grew sideways - I have no explanation for this - sorry.

When Thomas Brattli's code says to include onload="loadIt(1)" in all your images, I don't think he means ALL the images on your page even the ones having nothing to do with the load bar. Take that out of all your button images and your header image and it will stop the crazy widening.

I haven't used Brattli's code so I'm not exactly sure what it's doing but I know taking that code out of your images will solve the problem and the loader will still work as it does now.

Cheers

No, just the ones that don't have anything to do with the load bar.

Especially take it out from your button images. They are the ones that are causing the widening of the page after several mouseovers.

Maybe you misunderstood but you just need to remove this from the images:

onload="loadIt(1)"

Just try taking that out of the image tags for your buttons and you will see the page will work fine without the wierd widening effect. Does that make sense?
