Using Javascript - Aspx.vb

I'm very new to .Net and I'm working on a webapp that uses an aspx.vb file for all the code.  I want to use a button's onClick event to display some components on a webform.  I'm using <div> tags to control the showing and hiding.  I've found a couple of websites that set the div display property by calling a javascript function.  I place this javascript code in the html portion of the aspx file.  When it runs, it says it can't find the function in the aspx.vb file.  Am I putting the code in the wrong place or is there is a way to put javascript in the aspx.vb file?  Thanks...

You would need to do it like this, this prints divs using java:

<div id="printReady">
<p>Hello World! Your Printable Page Content Goes Here</p>
</div>

<script language="JavaScript">
var gAutoPrint = true; // Flag for whether or not to automatically call the print function

function printSpecial()
{
      if (document.getElementById != null)
      {
            var html = '<HTML>\n<HEAD>\n';

            if (document.getElementsByTagName != null)
            {
                  var headTags = document.getElementsByTagName("head");
                  if (headTags.length > 0)
                        html += headTags[0].innerHTML;
            }
            
            html += '\n</HE>\n<BODY>\n';
            
            var printReadyElem = document.getElementById("printReady");
            
            if (printReadyElem != null)
            {
                        html += printReadyElem.innerHTML;
            }
            else
            {
                  alert("Could not find the printReady section in the HTML");
                  return;
            }
                  
            html += '\n</BO>\n</HT>';
            
            var printWin = window.open("","printSpecial");
            printWin.document.open();
            printWin.document.write(html);
            printWin.document.close();
            if (gAutoPrint)
                  printWin.print();
      }
      else
      {
            alert("Sorry, the print ready feature is only available in modern browsers.");
      }
}

</script>

Test Link:
<a href="javascript:void(printSpecial())">Print this Page</a>  

Test Button
<form id="printMe" name="printMe">
  <input type="button" name="printMe" onClick="printSpecial()" value="Print this Page">
</form>  
 
Regards,

Aeros

Yes, I do something very similar to this and here is the error I get:

BC30456: 'toggle' is not a member of 'ASP.WebForm2_aspx'.

where toggle is the name of the javascript function that I created in the html portion of the aspx page.

well then its not registering your script, or theres a syntax error.  Are your Form tags well formed?  Is your html well formed are you using user controls that have extra html etc?  If its not firing the script then thats the issue.

Ok, I think I may have figured it out.  The javascript is fine.  Apparently you cannot use the onclick event of a Webform button but you can use the onclick event of an html button.  

I guess if I wanted to use the webform button I would have to figure out a way to achieve the same thing in the aspx.vb page...
