Hello,

I'm trying to display an image in my Google Maps Infowindow. To this end i need a little further help setting up this variable:

var info = '<div id="info" style="text-align:left";><img src="travel_pics/"' + id + '"/x_info.jpg" width=150 height=100><h3>' + title + '</h3><br>' + date + '</div>';

In particular i'm having difficulty with this part:
<img src="travel_pics/"' + id + '"/x_info.jpg"

I understand there's an issue because Javascript doesn't know what images are on the server, so this needs to be defined server-side in my php.

Please can you tell me what specifically i need to define in my php script and what needs to go in my javascript to make this work?
(i have attached both my javascript 'index.php' and my php script 'read.php' for your reference).


Many thanks

readme.php.txt has an error:
$info_pic = "travel_pics/" . id . "/x_info.jpg";
should be:
$info_pic = "travel_pics/" . $id . "/x_info.jpg";
(a $ in front of $id)

currently you have:
travel_pics/"' + id + '"/x_info.jpg

the double quotes adjacent to the slashes should NOT be there. Try:
var info = '<div id="info" style="text-align:left";><img src="travel_pics/' + id + '/x_info.jpg" width=150 height=100><h3>' + title + '</h3><br>' + date + '</div>';

It's very easy to debug this with FireFox with the firebug extension enabled.  If you're using IE, try Fiddler.

In the "console" section of firebug, you'll be able to see your requests and responses for XMLHttp (AJAX).  They won't show up on the web page as errors.

The firebug console or fiddler would've shown the parse error noted above.

I also recommend the "Web Developer" extension for firefox.  It allows you to easily inspect elements and even modify them inline.

Thanks to both of you, although SideFX250 your 1st post is incorrect. If i use the dollar sign then Firebug reports that $id is undefined!
