Classic ASP with VBScript

I have a much older ASP with VB Script web based application that I have to maintain. One ASP page in question is dynamic HTML (HTML and VBScript) and two ASP pages that are VBScript classes

The first class is instantiated in the Dynamic HTML ASP page while the second class has to be instantiated in the first class. In order for the instantiated object to write HTML, a Response.Write is used (Not my choice, it was written long before I showed up).

In the first instantiated object, if I instantiate the second class outside of any Response.Write statements, it works. However I have to allow the user to click a button that calls a method in the second instantiated object so I have to use Response.Write

I have tried creating the instantiated second class and the call to a method in the object in it's own function and having the OnClick call the function but I can't seem to be able to get this to work.

I was told that this might be possible by using a JavaScript function in the middle of the VBScript like:

VBScript...
%>

<Script language="javascript">

    Function MyFunction()
    {
       Call to VBScript function
     }
</script>

<%
VBScript...

Is this possible? If so do you have a simple example?

Just write the second class so you can get a value from it that you can use in the Response.Write statement.  I can't see the javascript in the middle of VBscript working.
