div onclick - El Forum - 10-09-2008

Hi,

I have a div and I want to use onClick on it.
Normally it just works fine, but not with codeigniter.

Code:
onClick='window. location.href="<?=anchor('test', 'test')?>;"'

It does nothing at all.

Any ideas?

is that your example code? if so, it does nothing because there's no onclick code there!
really you should be using jquery or prototype.js and using unobtrusive javascript.
I have used clickable divs a lot in codeigniter and never had any problems

[edit] your example code changed.

I think it's a problem with the anchor helper
Without it it just works, with it not.

(btw I put an space between window and location because the forum didn't show the snippet without the space)

ah, yes. the anchor helper will create an href tag.
so your code would look like
Code:
onClick='window. location.href="<a href="test">test</a>"'
which explains why it's not working,.

frietkot use site_url instead.

Given the code example that you have provided, you would be setting the URL to something like:

http://<a href="test">test</a>

Which is not the desired effect.
You would want to product something like:

http://yourdomain.com/test

You can achieve this with the following code:
Code:
onClick="window .location .href='&lt;?= base_url();?&gt;/test'"
