assume you have a javascript file called myfile.js @ the root of application

so you have to give ref. of that fine in head tag of html

<script src="~/myfile.js"></script>

now in this myfile.js, you can write a function that will be called on click on html button. assume the function name is buttonClicked

so in js file, you can write

function buttonClicked()
{
alert('button click called');
}

And for html button you can write

onclick="javascript:buttonClicked();"
