    Even though it's 5+ years old, this guy explains javascript functions better than anyone else. Thanks, dude.

    Can someone help me? Why not use the variable instead? Use it in the function I mean.

    You should already know this if you know java or c++ unless this is your first time learning a programming language.

    How can I call the same function as a value for attribute onclick of a button ?

    The below code isn't working

    <input type="button" value="Click here" onclick="meatball("bacon")" />

    Can some body please explain how to call parameterzed functions from html buttons?

    I get it but why not just use variable e.g.
    x= "meatballs"
    alert ("i love" + ×);

    somebody please explain.

    <script type="text/javascript">
    document.write("Hello World!");
    </html> – this is the shortest JavaScript program

    function meatball (x) {
            alert ("I really love " + x)

           meatball ("the way you teach Javascript, many thanks!");
           meatball ("your tutorials, you have a great teaching style.");

    Doesn't work can you just tell us how this fits into a script?

  37. Vicky Mukherjee Avatar

    Very very very technical tutorial. Thanks!!!

  38. Zoran Kozina Avatar

    What if I only wanted the alerts to pop up when I press the button? I write some different parametres in, and make the form element outside the script, and then it just pops them up immediately (I guess just because it sees it in the code, when I actually meant that just to declare what the parameter of the function is.) And then it doesn't even pop it up when I press the  button! What do I do? And how do I put stuff in the parametre without actually writing it in the code where it's like instructing the program to pop it up?

    How can you make a conversion with a function? For instance, ounces to cups using parseInt() or parseFloat().
