    Question CSS added with JS

    I have this script.

    Code:
    function addGlobalStyle(css) {
        var head, style;
        head = document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0];
        if (!head) { return; }
        style = document.createElement('style');
        style.type = 'text/css';
        style.innerHTML = css;
        head.appendChild(style);
    }
    
    addGlobalStyle('#column_left { background-color: #e4dab6; }');
    But instead of adding line for line with the CSS code I would like it to read a file called mystyle.css with all the nessesery css.
    It MUST be done with JS. How can this be done? Can anyone explane this for me?

    Why not just create a link tag and set the href attribute to your external sheet?

    If it has to be done with JS, try something like:

    Code:
    addGlobalStyle("@import url('mystyle.css');");

    I think (historically at least) setting innerHTML on a style element was not well supported on a range of browsers. A better way to include your style sheet may be something like this,

    Code:
    var link = document.createElement('link');
    link.rel = 'stylesheet';
    link.href = 'mystyle.css';
    link.type = 'text/css';
    document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(link);

    Try the setClass method in SpryDomUtils.js

    Click on Spry Utilities and look under Utility Methods
