Console Error:
autoSave is not defined
[Break on this error] var timeout = setTimeout('autoSave()',ms);

I've tried several different 'fixes', but this error persists.  The ajax call returns as it should.  The error occurs post to the click function.

I believe the error is occurring at line 13.
<cfajaximport>



<script type="text/javascript">



	$(document).ready(function() {

	

		function autoSave(){

			ColdFusion.Ajax.submitForm("finalRender", "/admin/emailBeta/act/act.save.email.cfm", callBack, callError);

			autoSaveEvery(10000);

		}

		

		function autoSaveEvery(ms) {

			var timeout = setTimeout('autoSave()',ms);

		}

		

		function callBack(res) {

			if (res) {

			document.getElementById('messageArea').innerHTML = 'Autosaved at ' + nowFormated();

			}

		}

		

		function callError(res) {

			if (res) {

			document.getElementById('messageArea').innerHTML = 'Autosaved at ' + nowFormated();

			}

		}

		

		function nowFormated(){

			var now = new Date();

			var ampm = "AM";

			var hour = new Number(now.getHours());

			if (hour > 12) {

				ampm = "PM";

				hour = hour - 12;

			} else if (hour == 0) {

				hour = 12;

			}

			var minutes = new Number(now.getMinutes());

			if (minutes <= 9) {

				minutes = "0" + minutes;

			}

			var seconds = new Number(now.getSeconds());

			if (seconds <= 9) {

				seconds = "0" + seconds;

			}

			return hour + ":" + minutes + ":" + seconds + " " + ampm;

		}

		

		$("#saveEmail").click(function () {

			autoSave();

		});

	

	});



</script>

Change:

function autoSaveEvery(ms) {
      var timeout = setTimeout('autoSave()', ms);
}

To:

function autoSaveEvery(ms) {
      var timeout = setTimeout(autoSave, ms);
}
