looping javascript functions

Recommended Posts

(i'm not sure what forum this should go in) i'm trying to make a mouse follower using javascript. I have a box that follows the mouse just fine, but it only calls the function to move the box when the mouse moves. I need to know how to call that function continuously. Anyone know?

You will need to use one of the 2 timeout functions to call it every so often. setTimeout is one of the 2 functions, but I can't remember the other. Remember you're sharing the processing time with the browser, so you can't truly do anything continuously in a browser's javascript functions.
