onClick woes
Hi Everyone,

I have a problem with my javascript code. I am trying to pass a parameter to the checkAnswer function during using the onClick event handler.

I wrote the following lines of code:

var option2= document.createElement("input");
    option2.type = "button";
      option2.name = alldetails[3];
      option2.id = "test123";
      option2.value = alloptions[1];
      var testx = option2.name;
  // alert(testx);
    option2.onclick = new Function('checkAnswer(' + testx + ')'

Where alldetails[3] = “Europe” (I string value in an array).

function checkAnswer(response)

When I click my button, nothing happens. The firefox error console says

“Error: Europe is not defined”

Any help would be apprectiated. I basically want the value from the array to be passed to another function upon clicking the button.

There are a number of ways:

option2.onclick = function(){checkAnswer(this.name);};
I think that's neater or

option2.onclick = new Function("checkAnswer('" + testx + "');");
what you had but your quotes were wrong.
