View Full Version : Halo template - 'menuitem1' is undefined in IE due to mouseover

01-11-2009, 02:14 AM
I am getting a " 'menuitem1' is undefined " error in IE when my page loads (only if you move the mouse while the page is loading) due to the DW Halo mouseover commands monitoring mouse movement prior to menuitem1 getting defined by the java.

I have seen many discussions about this, and I can understand why it is happening, but I can't find a fix.

I am hoping someone may have a sugestion:

this.caller = document.getElementById(callname);
this.thediv = document.getElementById(divname);
this.thediv.style.visibility = startstate;
//menu methods
function ehandler(event,theobj){
for (var i=1; i<= theobj.numberofmenuitems; i++){
var shutdiv =eval( "menuitem"+i+".thediv");

function closesubnav(event){
