CDML tags inside Javascripts?

Hello

I am trying to make a solution involving both Javascript and a Filemaker 5 database, but I cannot get even the simplest Javascript to work. Am I missing something out? I have searched the Net and books available to me for a solution, but no luck.I haven't found any threads here giving hints to this problem.

Example. This little test-script:

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">

<!--

alert('[FMP-CurrentRecID]')

//-->

</script>

It just displays "[FMP-CurrentRedID]" instead of, lets say "7". When I put the tag [FMP-CurrentRecID] on the page it displays the number ok, but not inside the javascript.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi Lange,

What you can try is to create a function with a parameter that's passed to the alert() function:

<HEAD>

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="javascript">

<!--

function showalert(message) {

alert(message);

}

// -->

</SCRIPT>

</HEAD>

<BODY>

<P><A HREF="javascript:showalert('[FMP-CurrentRecID]')">Click here to send the RecordID!</A></P>

</BODY>

This should do the trick.

Hi all

Thanks for your replies. The idea of removing the comment tags was brilliant. Now it works!

I had not come across this problem before. And it did all the difference! The problems with older browsers; well I think I can live with that - gonna try at least :-)

Best wishes

Lange
