onClick Not Working

Hi folks. Been searching google and forums for a while and unable to find this result. Here's a quick simple piece of code to explain.


  function myFunc() {
  function ajaxCall() {
    //performing ajax call here and using innerHTML to place response in <div> below
  <div id="textFromAjax"></div>

So my issue is this. In the ajax response I have a button with an onClick event trying to fire the myFunc function on the main page. I assume that the ajax response is not binding with the calling page. Any ideas here? Much thanks in advance.

RE: onClick Not Working

Possibly because your "example" code does not have an "onclick() event defined anywhere.

Chris, thanks! Yes, I was trying to save some time because I was certain the issue had to do with binding the javascript being brought in and placed on the page with innerHTML. Had I posted the actual onClick() event in my code, you would have noticed a missing quotation mark.. Appreciate the response though. Thanks!!
