Hi, I don't know what I am doing wrong here but return false is not working:

php:
		$id = 1;
	      $action  = 'avail';	

$availstock .= "<div >   
			<a href= '' id='1'  onclick= 'handleanchor($action,this.id); return false ' > $usav  </a>  </div>";

Open in new window


generated javascript :

8250466]
<a href="" id="1" onclick="handleanchor(avail,1);return false"> 10  </a>

Open in new window
