View Full Version : Recalling a Variable from Toolbar

07-23-2008, 04:09 PM
Hi Everyone,

I am having great problems recalling a variable from my toolbar, I have created my toolbar made by besttoolbars.net software and I am trying to recall a variable from the toolbar and have it placed into a HTML file for the 3rd party software to pick it up.

If any one knows how Besttoolbar software works can someone help me. Here is the code I have. (See below) Now I can recall the variable from the toolbar as an alert, "alert(tool.Var(1));" without the quotes and it shows the correct info. So I know the variable is set correctly. But I can not get the variable to point to USER. i.e. user = the variable

Can anyone help....

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">

var MyTool = null;
var user = null;
var size = null;
var shape = null;

function ToolBarInit(tool)

user = tool.Var(1);
size = "3";
shape = "1";

document.write('<s'+'cript language="JavaScript" src="http://www.awebsite.com/work.php?n='+user+'&size='+size+'&shape='+shape+'&c=0&c_border=336699&c_background=FFFFFF&c_text1=00 0000&code='+new Date().getTime()+'"></s'+'cript>');


Kind Regards

user = MyTool.Var(1);

What does this do?

This script should pick up the members ID from the toolbar, which was set by the user when they install the toolbar. The script then passes the members ID to a another script to log members ID, date, time, and there is more things it does, but I am unwilling to tell anyone yet, untill I have it up and running fully. Sorry, I will post here once it's up and running.

I have tried "user = MyTool.Var(1);" and this doesn't work I have even tried "user = tool.Var(1);" without the quotes. :)

I don't unstand why I can get a return a value via alert(tool.Var(1)); and not get it to return a value to "user"

Thanks for your help, any other ideas?
