Need to know how to pass values into a .JS file, probably just a simple syntax issue

I've never used a .JS file before for javascript so I don't really know how to use the functions within it on the page.  I got this software called Vista Buttons to create menus and it makes a .JS file which has the proper include in the HTML for it.  It looks like they do it with a variable called vbImgPath but I cannot seem to do it the same way they do.  I will have multiple variables that I need to pass in from textboxes and stick in the URL of one of the menu options.  

Here is what is included in the HTML page:
<!-- Begin Vista-Buttons.com -->
<link href="Vista Menu-files/styles_3uqfs.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/>
<script type="text/javascript"> var vbImgPath="Vista Menu-files/"</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="Vista Menu-files/sc3uqfs.js"></script>
<noscript><a href="http://vista-buttons.com">Windows Xp Style Menu by Vista-Buttons.com v2.79</a></noscript>
<!-- End Vista-Buttons.com -->

Here is an excerpt from the .JS file.  It includes a working example of the variable they passed in called vbImgPath and one that I tried to pass in called Own.  I tried just copying the line that they use and sticking in Own=500000.  The link gets cut off in the browser at the point I try to add that variable to the link.
<img id="xpi_4uqfs" src="'+vbImgPath+'/bt4uqfs_0.gif" name="vb4uqfs" width="59" height="25" border="0" alt="Home"/></a></td></tr></table>');
document.write('<ul id="vbUL_ruqfs" class="vbUL3uqfs" style="visibility:hidden;"><li><a href="http://a10b3131/cgi-bin/sysroi?PgmName=NMARWI&Owner="'+Own+'"&User=NKress&SSUName=" title="Main Screen"

So essentially, I just need to build a link like this:
http://a10b3131/cgi-bin/sysroi?PgmName=NMARWI&Owner=500000&User=JDoe 

I attached the .JS file.

assuming you have in your link in browser:

"http://sometest.com/test.php?param1=3423¶m23=3553


this function will parse all of your parameters:


var table=location.search.replace(/^\?/,"").split("&");
var params=new Array();
for (var i=0,y=table.length;i<y;i++) params[i]=table[i].split("=");

Is that what you need?

bobjoestAuthor Commented:
Not really, it's more a matter of needing to pass values from the page to the .JS file.  When I declare a variable on the page and try to display it within the .JS file somewhere it comes up with an undeclared error.

Pawel WitkowskiSenior Javascript DeveloperCommented:
I still dont have idea what are you all talking about but I will help you as far as I understand you:

in line:

<a href="http://a10b3131/cgi-bin/sysroi?PgmName=NMARWI&Owner="'+Own+'"&User=NKress&SSUName=" title="Main Screen"


the problem is after Owner="'    

because here you have  "  and '     that means - > closing  href link then adding a parameter so it will look like this:

<a href="http://a10b3131/cgi-bin/sysroi?PgmName=NMARWI&Owner="YourParameterHere

So you need this:

document.write('<ul id="vbUL_ruqfs" class="vbUL3uqfs" style="visibility:hidden;"><li><a href="http://a10b3131/cgi-bin/sysroi?PgmName=NMARWI&Owner='+Own+'&User=NKress&SSUName=" title="Main Screen"

I tried that before and just now again.  Should I have to make a statement like below to use a variable declared in the page in that jscript file?  
<script type="text/javascript"> var Own=511111</script>
0
Pawel WitkowskiSenior Javascript DeveloperCommented:
yes, but to retrieve this value from adress just use function that i gave you, so:
<script type="text/javascript">

var table=location.search.replace(/^\?/,"").split("&");
var params=new Array();
for (var i=0,y=table.length;i<y;i++)
{
   var temp=table[i].split("=");
params[temp[0]]=temp[1];
}

</script>

so now you can type:

<script type="text/javascript"> var Own=params('Owner');</script>

bobjoestAuthor Commented:
I should have been more clear.  I tried that and it still didn't work.  The issue still remains that the link still shows up as:
http://a10b3131/cgi-bin/sysroi?PgmName=NMARWI&Owner=
and cuts off the rest.  Is there a way to check my temp files to see what was actually written for the .JS file?
0
Pawel WitkowskiSenior Javascript DeveloperCommented:
first of all... its very bad (very very) to use document.write ... but lets forget about it. First check that your value is filled with something, you can do that by:
alert(Own);
do that outside of document.write and we will see (maybe) whats the problem uhh
0
bobjoestAuthor Commented:
OK, I got all that sorted out and was able to pass it in.  I was using the wrong version of the JS file.  Why is it so bad to use document.write?  It was auto-generated by that menu creator software I used.  What would I need to do to just embed it in the html?
0
Pawel WitkowskiSenior Javascript DeveloperCommented:
A short concept here:

http://www.sitepoint.com/blogs/2007/07/11/insert-in-place-without-documentwrite/

normally script from .js files you put like this:

<script type="text/javascript" src="somesrc.js"></script>

And inside .js file you have normal javascript like:

// Begin

var element=4;
alert(element);

// End

Of course some older libaries may consist document.write but they generally ... well... sux ^^ as you can see there is problem with dynamical access and change of inserted nodes because they are parsed like text... That sux completly... I understand that your skill in javascript are very little, so I advice you to read something about DOM and javscript (mozilla got nice functions explanation). Javascript is very simple and flexible language, just try to understand some basics and rest will be easy... i think :)
