Default Calling VBScript Function from javascript

Hi All,

I need to call a Vbscript function from a checkbox onClick event. The same needs to be done from a link <a href></a>

How can this be done. Normal function calling failed.
------------I had used---------------

<a href="javascript:void(0);" language=VBscript onclick="GenerateHTML(SomeParameter)">Generate</a>

Any help would do.

Hi there,

Are you sure it's an issue with the way you call your function? Your example should work. The following code results in four links that all say Hello:
    <script type="text/vbscript">

      Function SayHello()
        MsgBox "Hello"
      End Function


  <a href="#" onclick="SayHello()">Click Me</a><br />
  <a href="vbscript:SayHello()">Click Me</a><br />
  <a href="javascript:void(0);" onclick="SayHello()">Click Me</a>
  <a href="javascript:void(0);" language=VBscript onclick="SayHello()">Click Me</a>
