I have an html page with two radio buttons.  When the user clicks the radio button, it should trigger the url.

The following has the correct url, but does not go to that page.  What am I doing wrong?


        <td><input onclick="/myPage?key={{myData.key|stringformat:"s"|urlencode}}" type="radio" value="foo" name="s">1</td>

When using JavaScript to change location you have to either open in a new window, or adjust the windows current location.

Try the following:
<td><input onclick="window.location.href='/myPage?key={{myData.key|stringformat:"s"|urlencode}}'" type="radio" value="foo" name="s">1</td>

Open in new window

Also, I have just noticed that you have nested literals. Those need to be escaped.
<td><input onclick="window.location.href='/myPage?key={{myData.key|stringformat:\"s\"|urlencode}}'" type="radio" value="foo" name="s">1</td>

Open in new window

It should just be a case of replacing your original code with that suggested above.

Are you using PHP? If so then use code from my first response. If you actually intend "{{myData.key ..." to appear within the link then use the code from my second response.

See an additional simplified example below:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<html>
	<head>
		<title>Demo Page</title>
	</head>
	<body>
		<h1>Demo Page</h1>
		<div>
			<input onclick="window.location.href='http://www.google.com'" type="radio" value="foo 1" name="s">
			<input onclick="window.location.href='http://www.google.com'" type="radio" value="foo 2" name="s">
		</div>
	</body>
</html>

Open in new window
