Right, the "return: false" prevents the normal callback from
executing. "return: true" (the default) will allow the callback to
it loads a new page because you have clicked on a new link. This is
all just the way HTML works.
I think you need to use #callback:value:. Something like:
onClick: (html scriptaculous evaluator
callback: [:x | x < 200 ifTrue: [self previousPage] ifFalse:
value: (JSStream on: 'arguments.x');
callback: [ :script | "use :script to update the DOM element
with the current image" ];
Except that isn't quite right because "arguments.x" returns the x
position on the screen. I don't know how you get the position within
the map. (also JSStream is SUStream in Seaside 2.8).
