not implemented error: javascript/ajax in asp page

hiya experts...

I have a little problem with an asp/ajax/javascript script.....

i know this statement works:
xmlhttp.onreadystatechange=loadList;

the problem is i have about 20 different situations to check for and i can do something like this to call the right "loadlist":
eval("xmlhttp.onreadystatechange=loadList"+theList);
where "theList" is the current list needed. Only problem is that i need to create 20 or so functions called
loadlistSOMETHING() .....

i tried various ways to send an argument to loadlist like:
xmlhttp.onreadystatechange=loadList("something");
or
xmlhttp.onreadystatechange=loadList(varforlist);

but i get a "not implemented" error...

can you not send arguments to this type of function??

function loadList(theList) {
      if (xmlhttp.readyState==4) {
          if (xmlhttp.status==200) {
                   document.getElementById(theList).innerHTML=xmlhttp.responseText;
        }
    }
}


thanks,
rich

When you set the onreadystatechange event this way, no, you CAN'T send an argument.  However, that doesn't mean you can't do something like this:

var theList;

function doTheXMLHTTP() {
      theList = something;
      xmlhttp.onreadystatechange = loadList;
}

function loadList() {
     document.getElementById(loadList).innerHTML = xmlhttp.responseText;
}

Just set up your list as a global variable, in other words, so you don't need to pass it directly to the other function.

do ya mean
document.getElementById(theList).innerHTML = xmlhttp.responseText;
instead of
document.getElementById(loadList).innerHTML = xmlhttp.responseText;
