Hooking into "onLoad" event in Visualforce page

Hi,
Is it possible to define some javascript that runs when a visualforce page loads (not necessarily for the first time)?


Thanks!

The using Browser Technologies series has a reference to how to add a javascript onload function.
 
Here is a code snippet from that series:
 
Code:
<script>
      window.onload = new function() { submitForm(); };
      function submitForm() {
        textFld.value = "Set from onLoad event";
        btnCopy.click();
      }
      function changeValue() {
        otherName.value = "NO MORE LOREM IPSUM";
        return true;
      }
    </script>

Thanks for the reply!

Another way i found is to just put a script section containing js code at the bottom of the page before the </form> tag.  This code will run when the page loads.
