javascript working in IE but not in Firefox asp.net

Hi,
I have a piece of code that doesn't work in firefox.
ISBNuseSame.Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript:useSame(" + ISBNTextBox.ClientID + " , " + isbnValue + ");");

PPNuseSame.Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript:useSame(" + PPNTextBox.ClientID + " , " + ppnValue + " );");

 on aspx page, i wrote a function:
 function useSame(textBoxId, textBoxValue) {
            alert(textBoxValue + textBoxId);textBoxId.value = textBoxValue;
          textBoxId.value = textBoxValue;            
        }
on ie, it works fine, on firefox, even the alert does not fire. Also, can you please tell me how do I five the textboxvalue to that textbox.

What Kind of Coding Program is Right for You?

There are many ways to learn to code these days. From coding bootcamps like Flatiron School to online courses to totally free beginner resources. The best way to learn to code depends on many factors, but the most important one is you. See what course is best for you.

More than likely one or both of the values need to be in quotes for javascript:

ISBNuseSame.Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript:useSame('" + ISBNTextBox.ClientID + "' , "' + isbnValue + "');");

Add single quotes inside double quotes where needed for string values.

from this:
javascript:useSame'(ctl00_ctl00_PageContentPlaceHolder_MainContentPlaceHolder_ISBNTextBox , 1);'

where are the ' coming from after useSame and all the way at the end ?

also

ctl00_ctl00_PageContentPlaceHolder_MainContentPlaceHolder_ISBNTextBox  I am guessing is the id of the control, you should need to put document.getElementById around it in your function in order to access it's value property, and tommyBoy is correct that you would need to have quotes around it in order to properly pass it.




ISBNuseSame.Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript:useSame('" + ISBNTextBox.ClientID + "' , '" + isbnValue + "');");

PPNuseSame.Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript:useSame('" + PPNTextBox.ClientID + "' , '" + ppnValue + "');");

on aspx page, i wrote a function:
function useSame(textBoxId, textBoxValue) {
            alert(textBoxValue + textBoxId);
          document.getElementById(textBoxId).value = textBoxValue;        
        }

Sorry, what do you mean by adding single quotes inside double quotes. is this right?
   ISBNuseSame.Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript:useSame('" + ISBNTextBox.ClientID + "' , '" + isbnValue + "');");
                    PPNuseSame.Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript:useSame('" + PPNTextBox.ClientID + "' , '" + ppnValue + "');");
ISBNuseSame.Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript:useSame('" + ISBNTextBox.ClientID + "' , '" + isbnValue + "');");
                    PPNuseSame.Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript:useSame('" + PPNTextBox.ClientID + "' , '" + ppnValue + "');");
