This is the Java Script :
function getconfirm(str)
var retval=null;
var href="Form.aspx"+str;
This is the VB code:
Private Sub cmdPrint_Init(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles cmdPrint.Init
   Dim cmd As System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button
   Dim valuetopass as integer = Me.Label1.Text
1.-   cmd.Attributes.Add("onclick","getconfirm('This is the value to pass');")     "WORKS O.K"
2.-   cmd.Attributes.Add("onclick","getconfirm(valuetopass);")     "CAUSES AN ERROR"
When I use (1.) Statement Form.aspx shows the value O.K, but using (2.-) I have an error, can anybody show me how to pass a value correctly?

You need to build the js command as a string

2.-   cmd.Attributes.Add("onclick","getconfirm(" + valuetopass + ");")
or, if you pass a string or date
2.-   cmd.Attributes.Add("onclick","getconfirm('" + valuetopass + "');")        

Hope it helps
