Re: [TYPO3-english] Javascript in HTML template

Have you tried to open this html from the server (without TYPO3 involved)? I guess it won't work too, because actually you execute your javascript right away, without checking if all of the page is already loaded. Which can be fine on a local pc because there is no loading time, but from the internet the html takes a bit to load and your javascript is executed before the img tag with id="someimage" exists in your browser and so you will get the error.
You should put that code into a function and execute that function with
window.onload [1].

I have a problem regarding a Javascript in my html template.

When I run the template on my local pc it works, but when loading the
template on my typo3 site there is an error.

The javascript is the following (it just insert a random picture into a

<script type="text/javascript">
var aryimages = new Array('banner2.jpg');
document.getElementById("someimage").src =
aryimages[Math.floor(Math.random() * aryimages.length)];



<div align="center">
<table border="0" style="border: 1px solid #319a63" width="956"
cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" height="660">
<td valign="bottom" width="956" height="153" id="menu" colspan="3"><img
id="someimage" src="">menu</td>

When opening the page in typo3 I can see an explorer error, that calls
the following error:

'document.getElementById(...)' is null or not an object

- and it points to the line "document.getElementById("someimage").src =
aryimages[Math.floor(Math.random() * aryimages.length)];"

Anyone has knowledge about problem with inserting javascript ? as it
seems to be an typo3 related error, as it works fine on my local pc.
