I am using ajax to pass php variable to javasccript function as shown below for my particular application.

i am using the foolowing function from ajax.js freely available from net to implement the ajax functionality as

var abc = new sack();

PHP portion which passes the response text:
************************************
<?
$table=$_GET;

gg($table);
gg($table)
{
echo "<a href='#' onclick='showfield($table) '>show</a>";
}

?>


javascript:
*********
showfield(ss)
{

alert(ss);
}


Problem:
*******

1] When $table is having a string with only numeric characters for eg: "123" we get the alert

2] When $table is having a string with alphanumeric characters for eg: "123efg" we get the error report as "missing ) after argument list"

3] When $table is having a string with alphanumeric characters for eg: "efg123" or "abcdfr" we get the error report as "efg123 is not defined" or "abcdfr is not defined".

You need to pass strings with double or single quotes so you should use the escape character
try
echo "<a href='#' onclick='showfield(\"".$table."\") '>show</a>";
