Hi all,

I am trying to run a javascript function, RH_ShowHelp, that is stored in the file RoboHelp_CSH.js. The function itself should open a popup window containing our product's help system (written with Adobe RoboHelp) and the javascript file was supplied by Adobe as the standard call. I have managed to test the javascript in a straight HTML page which works, but I can't seem to be able to get this to work in PHP.

function callHelp( $helpURL )
	$language = "javascript";
	$src = "include/RoboHelp_CSH.js";
	echo "<script src=$src language=$language> RH_ShowHelp( 0, $helpURL, HH_HELP_CONTEXT, $currentId ) </script>";

Any ideas on where am I going wrong?

Thanks in advance,

You shouldn't load and execute code using the same <script> tag.
And all <script> blocks should be inside the <header> block, or at least all <script> blocks that are meant to load external code.

You could do this like so:

	<script src="test.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
	echo '<script type="text/javascript">someFunction();</script>';
