Error "Handler must be a function"

Hi

I have a problem with an asp.net AJAX calendar control on a gridview.

I add javascript to it on the row bound method for the OnClientDateSelectionChanged event.

Dim js As String = "dosomething('" & DaysX.ClientID & "','" & DaysY.ClientID & "')"
calendarEx.OnClientDateSelectionChanged = js
       
In javascript I have a function declared as

dosomething(varA,varB)

If the function is simply dosomething() no parameters the OnClientDateSelectionChanged  works

However I need to add parameters. When I add parameters the javascript is called followed by an error "Handler must be a function error"

Thanks in advance for assistance.

Try this:

calendarEx.OnClientDateSelectionChanged = function() {
        dosomething(DaysX.ClientID,DaysY.ClientID);
}

I think it will work for you.

in your code behind.......
Dim js As String = "dosomethingWithParams()"
calendarEx.OnClientDateSelectionChanged = js


In your script on the aspx......
function dosomethingWithParams()"
{dosomething('<%= DaysX.ClientID%>','<%=DaysY.ClientID%>');
}

remove the quote at the end of the js function definition, it's a typo

thanks for inputs;


hi diveblue
I made a slight mod so its like this
"javascript:function(){" & "dosomething(" & DaysX.ClientID & "," & DaysY.ClientID & ");};" to pickup the ID for each row. It does compile with no errors but javascript doesn't run - no alert message or anything.


hi DiveblueD
I like this idea however it doesn't work in my case. There are multiple DaysX client IDs etc as it is on  a gridview with each row having different IDs (asp.net can't compile the page like this) so it didnt' work

Sounds like you'll need to do some work in the onitemCreated event of the datagrid....here you can change attributes of the INSTANCE of the clendar that is on the row....
