hi
i want to pass variable from php to javascript.i want to pass my group[name please tell me.the current code is not working

<?
session_start();
 require_once('common/dblayer.php');
  $db=new dblayer();
  
$id=$employer_id;
$empid=$db->getgroupname($id);
$groupname=$empid[0]["group1"];
echo $groupname;
				
?>

javascript code

//Contents for menu 1
var menu1=new Array()
menu1[0]='<a href="employercp.php">Job Portal</a>'
menu1[1]='<a href="cggroup.php?id=<? echo $groupname; ?>">Groups</a>'

they way you are doing it is pretty much the only way you can pass a variable to the javascript. make sure $groupname is returning a value.

also, try using <?php instead of <?

thanks for your reply.still its not working

could you explain more. whats not working. is the variable returning a value. is there something wrong with the javascript. ect.

try:

var d=document.form1;
var v=d.inputname.value;
alert(v);

this is actually a menu .i have included in all the pages.

<?
session_start();
 require_once('common/dblayer.php');
  $db=new dblayer();
  
$id=$employer_id;
$empid=$db->getgroupname($id);
$groupname=$empid[0]["group1"];
echo $groupname;
				
?>

please help me in solving the above code

Are you sure it isn't working ? This code with slight modification to yours is working.

<?php
session_start();
 $groupname = "test";
echo $groupname;
?>

menu1[1]='<a href="cggroup.php?id=<?php echo $groupname; ?>">Groups</a>'
document.write(menu1[0] + menu1[1]);
</script>

I believe $groupname is empty in your case. :-/

hi
i tried printing the group name and it is working in one page.i have sent my file as attachment

I don't really understand what your script does!

when a user click a menu.it will drop down all the options.its a menu bar.
eg when u click file in IE it will display New,File.......
something like tat

I just passed a dummy value for $groupname and it works. I stick to my words, your variable is empty, so it isn't working.

it is so easy to pass variable from php to javascript.
Lets consider there are two scripting in one page like below.

<script type="text/javascript">//javascript coding
var id;
</script>

<?php //php coding
$ x=90;
?>

now we will pass the value of x from php to javascript;
So, lets write another code to pass value
<script type="text/javascript">//javascript coding
id=<?php echo $x ?>;
</script>
now the value of x is passed to id;
