Who can help me with the following.
I have an allertbox with text in it but i want different languages for the text in the allertbox

$lang = array();

$lang['ALERTBOX_A'] = 'To do this, you must first be logged in.';

onClick="alert(' <?php $lang['ALERTBOX_A']; ?>')"

In this case the language is in english but i have tree different langauges. That deppends on the choise of the user.

with this code i don't see anny text in the allertbox.
How can i fix it ?

Thanks

We would need to see your whole code, so we can better help you debug the script. If you do this, we can then look at other possible variables that may be affecting the outcome of your code.

sorry could not responce earlier.
oke here is the full code

<?php
header('Cache-control: private'); // IE 6 FIX
header('Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8');
if(isSet($_GET['lang']))
{
$lang = $_GET['lang'];

// register the session and set the cookie
$_SESSION['lang'] = $lang;

setcookie("lang", $lang, time() + (3600 * 24 * 30));
}
else if(isSet($_SESSION['lang']))
{
$lang = $_SESSION['lang'];
}
else if(isSet($_COOKIE['lang']))
{
$lang = $_COOKIE['lang'];
}
else
{
$lang = 'nl';
}

switch ($lang) {    

    case 'nl':
  $lang_file = '../languages/lang.nl.php';
  break;

 case 'de':
  $lang_file = '../languages/lang.de.php';
  break;

  case 'en':
  $lang_file = '../languages/lang.en.php';
  break;

case 'australie':
  $lang_file = '../languages/lang.en.php';
  break;

case 'usa':
  $lang_file = '../languages/lang.en.php';
  break;

      default:
  $lang_file = '../languages/lang.nl.php';

  }
include_once '../languages/'.$lang_file;

?>

Hope you can help me know

If you want to see an example

goto Click Here

first choose your language with the flags on the upper left corner
then click login
Then mouseover the button acount then click on MY account

I found it by myself i had a forgot something i was forgotten to type the word ECHO
onClick="alert(' <?php $lang['ALERTBOX_A']; ?>')"

I changed in onClick="alert(' <?php echo $lang['ALERTBOX_A']; ?>')"

i saw just you missed the echo keyword for displaying the value

but you got it

thats great you found it yourself
