Greetings:
 
I've been trying to sort this out for a while, and have decided to get help...
 
The problem is that I'd like to create a script that requires an argument. My approach has been to use ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript as follows:
 
  string ls_scriptString ;

  scriptString = "<script language='javascript'> function MyJScript(SomeText)" +
     "{ alert(SomeText); return true;}</script>";

  Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), "ClientScript", ls_scriptString , false);
  iButn_DoIt.Attributes.Add("onClick", "return MyJScript('Hello World')");
 
The above works if I don't use the SomeText argument. Otherwise I get an runtime error (")" expected on the click event).

How do I set this up so that the script can receive arguments?

Thanks

Your code needs to use "RegisterClientScriptBlock" instead of "RegisterStartupScript", see below for an example
<%@ Page Language="C#" %>
 
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
 
<script runat="server">
 
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        string scriptString = "function MyJScript(SomeText) { alert(SomeText); return true;}";
 
        ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(this.GetType(), "ScriptBlock", scriptString, true);
 
        iButn_DoIt.Attributes.Add("onClick", "return MyJScript('Hello World')");
    }
    
</script>
 
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
    <asp:LinkButton runat="server" ID="iButn_DoIt" Text="Testing" />
    </div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>
