InnerHTML to call Javascript function

Hello,

I am building a string and insert the HTML in a DIV.  This code, gives the html below it.  The word "fast" shows up with hyperlink but the function getSyn never gets called when you click on it.  

Any help would be much appreciated!

Cheers,

thissyn = "<a onclick='getSyn("+strIn.data[0].nym+")' href='javascript:void(0);'>" + strIn.data[0].dictionary.definitionData[a].meanings[c].synonyms[d].nym + "</a>, ";

Open in new window


<a onclick='getSyn(fast)' href='javascript:void(0);'>fast</a>

Open in new window

It is because you are calling getSyn with fast directly (as a variable which do not exist) it should called as string "fast":
thissyn = "<a onclick='getSyn(\""+strIn.data[0].nym+"\")' href='javascript:void(0);'>" + strIn.data[0].dictionary.definitionData[a].meanings[c].synonyms[d].nym + "</a>, ";

Open in new window

<a onclick='getSyn("fast")' href='javascript:void(0);'>fast</a>
