javascript create active link

javascript create active link

How can a javascript function produce links to another javascript function that will action when clicked ? link() writes the link but it is not active. Neither window.location = ""; as page refresh nor document.write() seem to help.

function function1()
var ss = "a";
var ii = 1;
var uu = "javascript:function2(" + ii + ")";
var vv = ss.link(uu);
ss = "b";
ii = 2;
uu = "javascript:function2(" + ii + ")";
vv += " " + ss.link(uu);
document.getElementById("myinput").value = vv; //writes text, not active links

document.getElementById("myinput").value = vv;
If has value property then it is either input, select, option or textarea - none of those can contain any HTML.
If has no value property then can not do anything with it.

Use innerHTML instead : https://jsfiddle.net/1znmwyns/
