xajax not using variable

Hi,,
I have something wierd going on with xajax.  In the code below, the variables in the $myhtml variable all show up in the response script alert('$myhtml') when sent to the javascript so I know all the values are being retrieved from my query.  The thing i dont undestand is that the only two variables that can be added to the script are $row and $taxid. If I add any of the other variables such as sub = $sub; the response does not get back and nothing happens. I take them out and it works. I tried a second response object and it does not work with any other variables either whether i use either or both of the response objects.  As long as the response object is exactly $objResponse->script("row=$row;taxid = $taxid;alert('$myhtml');"); it works. I need to transfer more than just the two variables. Is there a limit in the response?

Any ideas?

Thanks
$myhtml = " Count: ". $row . " Taxid: ". $taxid . " Legal: " . $sub . " " . $blk . " " . $lot . " Owner: ".$fname . " " . $lname;
$objResponse = new xajaxResponse();
$objResponse->script("row=$row;taxid = $taxid;alert('$myhtml');");
$objResponse->script("sub = $sub;blk = $blk;alert('$myhtml');");
 
return $objResponse;

No, there is no limit. $row and $taxid are both numeric, are the other values numeric or strings? If they are strings, they must be within apostrophes in the javascript:

$objResponse->script("sub = '$sub';blk = '$blk';alert('$myhtml');");

Thanks, that worked.  The taxid is a number, but actually a text field in the server. It did not dawn on me to use the apostrophes i thought they were all retrieved the same way since taxid was a text field and $row was a numer.

How would you encode this variable to include line breaks? I have tried <br>, \n, \r\n.

$myhtml = " Count: ". $row . " Taxid: ". $taxid . "\r\n Legal: " . $sub . " " . $blk . " " . $lot . " \r\nOwner: ".$fname . " " . $lname;

$objResponse->script("alert(myhtml = '$myhtml';")

Thanks.

You must double the backslashes, because they are consumed first by PHP, then by javascript in the browser.

$myhtml = " Count: ". $row . " Taxid: ". $taxid . "\\r\\n Legal: " . $sub . " " . $blk . " " . $lot . " \\r\\nOwner: ".$fname . " " . $lname;
$objResponse->script("alert('$myhtml');");
