Window alert does not work

Window alert does not work

Window alert does not work

(OP)
Variable SN in the window alert must be 'John' but is displayed as 'undefined'.
Thanks for solution tips.

<%
session("Mem")="John"
%>

<script>
<%
sesname=session("Mem")
%>

var SN = <%=sesname%>;

function myFunction()

{
alert("Dear "+SN+",\n...");
}
</script>
<script>myFunction();</script>

RE: Window alert does not work

What does the rendered source code look like?

Indifference will be the downfall of mankind, but who cares?
Time flies like an arrow, however, fruit flies like a banana.

Never mind this jesus character, stars had to die for me to live.

RE: Window alert does not work

The output is this



CODE

<script>
 
var SN = John;

function myFunction() 

{
alert("Dear "+SN+",\n...");
}
</script>
<script>myFunction();</script> 

So if you put a single quote around the value assigned to the value SN...

CODE

var SN = '<%=sesname%>'; 

...you should be all set.

RE: Window alert does not work

<script>
function myFunction() {
var SN = <%=session("Mem")%>;
alert("Dear "+SN+",\n...");
}
return myFunction()
</script>

or

<script>
var SN = <%=session("Mem")%>;
alert("Dear "+SN+",\n...");
</script>
