This tutorial describes several approaches to executing a certain piece of Javascript code after the page finishes loading.

Pure Javascript

To do this in pure Javascript, you need to attach a function that executes after the body finishes loading. You can do:
<body onload="someFunction()">

window.load = function() { ... }

document.load = function() { ... }

Using JQuery

To do the same in JQuery, use the $(document).ready event:
$(document).ready(function() {
