dosthCommented:
you have the below function called inside VBScript

var setcategory=0
function changecategory1(){
setcategory = 1
alert(setcategory)
 
function changecategroy2(){
setcategory = 2
alert(setcategory)

function changecategory3(){
setcategory = 3
alert(setcategory)

it needs to be on the Javascript segment

i have attached the modified version pls check it
