How include other .js file function inside another .js file

I have two javascript files
file1.js and file2.js
inside file1.js at following location I need to call a function which is actually included in file2.js
how can I do it.

Actually I have both of these js files added on the asp.net page but then user click on a button on that page which runs news_click function and inside that fuction I need to call the function from the file2.js file

Thanks
file1.js
function news_click(id) 
{
...
...
$(".ui-dialog-titlebar-close").hide();
$("#news_lett_dia").append(news_success).fadeIn("slow");
 
////Here I need to call the function from file2.js
}

You will just need to include the file2.js file in your aspx page. This will allow you to call a function inside file2.js from inside a function inside file1.js
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="file2.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="file1.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
<input type="button" value="Click Me" onclick="news_click(this);" />
</body>
</html>

Sorry forgot to mention the order of script inclusion is important when you want to call a function in one js to be called from another.

Just like this?
<a href="#" onclick="news_click(); ">news_click()</a>

file1.js
====================
function news_click(){
fun2();
}

file2.js
====================
function fun2(){
alert('abc');
}

Not even the order of inclusion is important, sunithnair.

fsze88:
Just define your script files in whatever order in your head section, as sunithnair showed, and you're good to go.
