Hyperevents Example

Complete the following steps to use hyperevents and the #server()# directive.

  1. Using Studio, create a CSP page named MySamplePage3.CSP in csp/user.

  2. Add the following script to the page. The script defines a Caché method named AlertUser. Note that the script uses the embedded JavaScript syntax: &js<>. The CSP compiler automatically converts embedded JavaScript to the appropriate set of ObjectScript Write statements.

    <script language="cache" method="AlertUser">
    &js<alert("Hello User");> 
  3. Add the following script as well. This script defines a JavaScript function named MyFunction. This function uses #server()# to call the server-side AlertUser method.

    <script language="JavaScript">
    function MyFunction(){
  4. Finally, add the following button to MySamplePage3.CSP. When clicked, the button invokes the JavaScript function MyFunction.

    <input type="Button" value="Click Me" onClick="MyFunction()"/>
  5. Open MySamplePage3.CSP in a Web browser and click the button.

You can also use &html<> to embed HTML.
