Javascript Refresh.

Some people here may know that I've been trying to find a js reloader.
With IE you can change the src of script[0], but with NS you needed an empty script so you can call a new js source to it.....

just done some experimenting and came up with this.......
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> <html> <head> <title>untitled</title> </head> <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript"> function changeScript(newScript) { oldScript=document.getElementsByTagName("script" )[1] var newEl = document.createElement('script'); newEl.setAttribute('type', 'text/javascript'); newEl.setAttribute('src', newScript); oldScript.parentNode.replaceChild(newEl,oldScript); changeScript.el = newEl; return true; } </script> <body> <script type="text/javascript" src="js1.js"></script> <button onclick="changeScript('js2.js')">New JS</button> <button onclick="changeScript('js1.js')">Old JS</button> </body> </html>

give it a try, set up 2 external js files, js1.js and js2.js, with a different alert in each.
works in NS and IE ( don't know about firebird, but not in opera )

Is there something I can add to this script to stop it caching it's js, like a delete???

Works absolutely brilliantly with NS and Firebird!!!!!!
Doesn't cache or replaces cache when you call the new JS, it loads the new JS!!! Mad possabilities....

GoodBye IE, Firebird seems like my new browser. I wonder if my sound functions work. . . . . . . . . . . . . .
