Onload complex issue

I tried to use onload, but I already have an onload that creates some text items dynamically and all my hyperlink does apart from other things disables some of these items that I create to start with.
It is like I want to create some text dynamically and disable some of them
on load as well. Any idea? I gues HTML has only onload event to handle this kind of thing.

Exactly what is the sequence of events that you want to occur?

I have code like this:
window.on_load=f_1(); //f_1 dynamically creates some text items.
in body tag on_load=f_2()
f_2() functions disables some of the items created by f_1 above depending on business logic.

Seems f_2 does not fire. However if I comment out f_1 on load f_2 in body tag does work, So it is not a syntax problem. I am thinking it is more timing issue. If I call f_2 within f_1 i.e. have only one onload function
I get error object not found.

How else can I do this?

combine them both in the body tag



use a function with the function calls
