How come my java script doesn't run? I get an error everytime I click on the button that is attached to function below. If I stick this same code in the middle of a php function or in the middle of the php module, it works. If I stick it in a javascript event like I did, it doesn't work.
<?php

require_once("vcl/vcl.inc.php");

//Includes

use_unit("forms.inc.php");

use_unit("extctrls.inc.php");

use_unit("stdctrls.inc.php");
 

//Class definition

class Unit1 extends Page

{

       public $Button1 = null;

       function Button1JSClick($sender, $params)

       {?>

       <script language="JavaScript"

         type="text/javascript">

         window.alert('Hi there');

       </script>
 

       <?php
 

       }
 

}
 

global $application;
 

global $Unit1;
 

//Creates the form

$Unit1=new Unit1($application);
 

//Read from resource file

$Unit1->loadResource(__FILE__);
 

//Shows the form

$Unit1->show();
 

?>

PHP Code executes on the SERVER. JavaScript executes on the BROWSER.

By the time you come to click the button, PHP is long finished processing your code.

What is the error you get?

The way Delphi for PHP is structured, the Java Script should run. It has built in Java events that can be scripted for any object on the web page. That is why I don't understand why it doesn't run. The specific error is Syntax err, line 15, char 8. Nomatter how alter lines 14 and 15, it gives me the same error message.

Where/when does the error occur?

Can you do a view-source to see if it is a local JS error?

Figured it out on my own. The function is actually a built-in java script function, thus eliminating the need for the tags identifying it as a java script.

There's not much to it as I was trying to experiment with different ways of handling a button click. The function apparrently includes (behind  the scenes) all of the set up necessary for a java script to execute.
       function Button1JSClick($sender, $params)
       {?>
         window.alert('Hi there');

       <?php

       }

Once I figured out the Delphi structure it was pretty much a no brainer; just remove the headers to the script (it is already expecting Java script) and viola!
One note of concern, however is that there doesn't seem to be a lot of support for Delphi for PHP at thepresent moment.
