javscript/jsfiddle help

Recommended Posts

I've been learning javascript and today I thought I'd use jsfiddle to practise on since its quick and easy. but nothing I did was working properly, so I stripped back my code and just did a simple hello world alert on button click. Even that doesnt work!

I'm pretty confident my code is correct but it wont work. Is it jsfiddles fault or mine?

That is with the javascript in the javascript box.

If i put the javascript in <script> tags then into the HTML it works then :s As you can see here: http://jsfiddle.net/JGuth/SmaAM/1/

The two are the exact same to my knowledge. So whats going on

By default JSFiddle doesn't add functions to the global/window scope, it wraps them inside an anonymous function, e.g:

<script type='[url=""]text/javascript[/url]'>//<![CDATA[
window.addEvent('load', function() {
function myFunction() {
alert("Hello World!");
}
});//]]> [/CODE]

If you choose "No wrap (head)" instead of "onLoad" under the framework section (in the sidebar) it will work as expected.

I tried it here: http://jsbin.com/welcome/61091/

and it worked, couldn't understand what was going wrong.
