I have the page called 'Test_Demo' that has two scripts, here are those scripts:

<script src="http://l.yimg.com/a/i/us/pps/mapbadge_1.3.js">{"pipe_id":"461b27bd06c88a959a79cadc5ef7d9ae","_btype":"map","pipe_params":{"rssurl":"http:\/\/sports.espn.go.com\/espn\/rss\/news"},"width":"740","height":"510"}</script>

<script src="http://l.yimg.com/a/i/us/pps/listbadge_1.4.js">{"pipe_id":"461b27bd06c88a959a79cadc5ef7d9ae","_btype":"list","pipe_params":{"rssurl":"http:\/\/sports.espn.go.com\/espn\/rss\/news"},"width":"740","height":"510"}</script>

Open in new window


I have two buttons on another page called 'Main', here it the code for those buttons:
<div class="list" style="left:530px; top:651px;" onClick="myIframe.location.href='scripts/Test_Demo.php';" title="List View"></div>

<div class="map" style="left:627px; top:651px;" onClick="myIframe.location.href='scripts/Test_Demo.php';" title="Map View"></div>

Open in new window


 I want to link one button from Main to one script from Test_Demo and the other button to the other script.

Is there a way I can do this with both scripts being on the same page, or do I need to separate out each script to it's own page?

You could pass parameters to your Test_Demo page in the query string.  The scripts could then be modified to inspect the query string and execute conditionally.

By doing it that way do I save loading time rather then just having each script as its own page.  Then call that page?

I ask only because I'm still confused.

Ultimately, it doesn't really matter if you split the scripts out into separate pages or leave them on the same page performance wise.  I would say do what makes the code look more clean and easy to manage.  If it is confusing for you to leave both scripts on the same page and execute them conditionally, then split them out into their own pages.  If it makes more sense for you to leave all of your scripts on one page and inspect a parameter to determine the appropriate script to execute, then go that route.  It really is just personal preference.
