    How: Javascript Jumping to #s

    I have a page that is automatically refreshing and I need for it to jump to the end of the file when it refreshes. Just refreshing the URL with a # on it doesn't work (ASP error). What line of javascript could be used to jump to a # in the page without reloading the page?

    location.href='#section'

    So if I don't include the page name in that command, it will just jump down the page? I will try that. Thanks.

    Hey,

    I would think it would work, but JavaScript has something better.

    window.location is an object and has properties. One of the properties is "hash" which is the part after the #. So, you could just:

    <body onload="location.hash='section'">

    Hey guys,

    Thanks creole for such high praise; not sure if I deserve it, but I'll take it

    Anyway, I was thinking of doing another SitePoint article with JavaScript, but I'm not sure on what. It could be anything from Core JS, DHTML, W3C DOM, JS Events, DOM Ranges, Form Validation, etc... but please be a little more specific.
