    Posting a variable to javascript

    For superpages, I need to pass the order id and order total variables to a script. I am currently using v5 and wondering how to go about doing this. Below is my code and seeing that the template tags do not render when within quotes. Any advice/help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    HTML Code:
    <NOSCRIPT>
    <IMG HEIGHT="1" WIDTH="1"
    SRC="https://cust1259.bidcenter-27.superpages.com/18560599/marker/
    Revenue+1?js=no&Order=&mvt:order:id;&Total=&mvt:order:formatted_total;">
    </NOSCRIPT>
    
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"
    SRC="https://cust1259.bidcenter-27.superpages.com/tag.js"
    TYPE="text/javascript"></SCRIPT>
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
    tag("cust1259.bidcenter-27.superpages.com","/18560599/marker/
    Revenue+1","Order","&mvt:order:id;","Total","&mvt:order:formatted_total;");
    </SCRIPT>

    Re: Posting a variable to javascript

    Hi: I pass variables to JS like this if they ate in a <form:
    <form method="post" onsubmit="return passvar(this)" action="&mvt:global:sessionurl;">
    <input type="hidden" name="Product_Name" value="&mvte:item:name;">
    </form>

    <script type="text/javascript">
    function passvar(obj) {
    var prod_name = obj.Product_Name.value;
    // then use the variable where ever you choose
    bla bla bla
    return true;
    } // end of JS function
    </script>

      I've used mvt: entities inside JavaScript strings, like what you posted, and they work OK. I wonder if something else is wrong here. What page template are you putting this script on? Are you sure the "order" item is assigned to the page?

        Thanks wajake41 I'll give it a try and see.

        Kent, it's on the invoice page. When the item is called in an image (1px X 1px) that is associated with the marker code the entities are filled in, but within the script they are not.

        The generated code is below.

        Thanks!!

          Re: Posting a variable to javascript

          I just checked the code from a recent custom job. Try using the old convention of putting HTML comment markers inside the script tag, e.g.
          Code:
          <script language="javascript">
          <!--
          .... your code here ....
          // -->
          </script>

            Re: Posting a variable to javascript

            @wajake41, for the form method, should I add this to the payment page or can this be inserted into the invoice page. I see that it is onsubmit, so thinking that it has to be in the payment page.

            Thanks!!
