    object name trouble

    if i have

    function newevent(val){
    alert(val);
    }

    <input type="button" value="Add a new event here" Onclick="newevent(abcd);">

    how can i get it to alert "abcd" instead of "[object]". I understand i am passing it as an object and i need to pass it this way as i use the object bit for something else. so how can i do it without replacing Onclick="newevent(abcd);" with Onclick="newevent('abcd');"

    (1) that you will be persuaded by me(in a legitimate mannor)
    (2)It is worthless to you, when i have finished

    Sorry, but I don't really understand what you're asking.
