set variable (cfset) using onclick??

set variable (cfset) using onclick??

im trying to set a variable using cfset dependant on what link is clicked, how can i do this? i cant make it work :o(

my code is:

<a href="javascript:document.myform.submit()" class="newsimage" onclick="return <cfset prop_brand='fr0002'>; <cfset prop_name='Cava + Glasses'>; <cfset prop_description='Perfect for center of table'>; <cfset prop_ref='Freixenet'>" onmouseover= "document.getElementById('brandsite').innerHTML='ref: <span class=brandlink> FR0002</span>';document.getElementById('description').innerHTML='freixenet cava<br><br>looks ideal in the center of a dinner table'; document.getElementById('product').innerHTML='freixenet cava + glasses'; changeImages('image2','image2on', 'otherImage', 'otherImage2')" onMouseOut="document.getElementById('brandsite').innerHTML='ref: '; document.getElementById('product').innerHTML='';document.getElementById('description').innerHTML=''; changeImages('image2','image2off', 'otherImage','otherImageDefault')"><img src="images/catalogue/fr0002.gif" alt="fr" name="image2" width="72" height="72" hspace="0" vspace="0" border="0" id="image2"></a>

There are 6 of these on my page (the fr numbers are different as are the image rollovers) but it always sets the values as the last link!!???

when i click on any image, the CFSET does not get set?

how can i achieve this??

Many thanks

RE: set variable (cfset) using onclick??


i've seen this

<a href="set_the_variable.cfm?animal=leo"> {your image} </a>

<cflock scope="session" type="exclusive" timeout="30"><cfset session.animal = #url.animal#></cflock>
<cflocation url="my_original_page.cfm" addtoken="no">

as a solution but how would i then make the form submit on return?
