I want to programatically assign a javascript function to the OnClientClick of an asp.net button, but the function accept two parameters, CBL_2 and cblError1.

However the first parameter name is dependent on what has come before so it could be CBL_1 to CBL_9, how can I assign this function call BUT dynamically change the first parameter name. Should be simple but the solution has eluded me!!

Thanks in advance guys.

AddB.OnClientClick = "return CheckListValidation('CBL_2','cblError1');";

AddB.OnClientClick = "return CheckListValidation('"+dynamicvaluehere+"','cblError1');";

Nope I had already tried that this is what I get in 'view code'

It doesn't work so I am presuming it should not look like this??

onclick="return CheckListValidation('CBL_'2','cblError1')

This is what it looks like if I just use a non-dynamic parameter name, so this is what it should look like after too.

onclick="return CheckListValidation('CBL_2','cblError1')

In this markup :

onclick="return CheckListValidation('CBL_'2','cblError1')

you are having an extra single quote between CBL_2. Can you check that ? Or can you post the code behind ?

This is a small test that I created. It works.

    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <asp:Button runat="server" ID="testButton" Text="click me!" />
    </div>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function testFunction(val) {
            alert(val);
            return false;
        }
    </script>
    </form>

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
     string CLB_2 = "hello world!";
     testButton.OnClientClick = "return testFunction('" + CLB_2 + "');";
}
