    Question Very new to Java but needs help


    I hope one of you fine people can help me.

    I have some experience as a VB.net developer but not java.

    I have a photography site that I am trying to get up and running a a bit prettier.

    I have a MySQL database behind the scene that does some user password storing and hashing.

    On my main page I have a textbox, the user inputs their password and if it validate it returns a XML file location (The xml file has a library of photos). I am using Milkbox as my lightbox plugin

    What I am trying to do is dynamicly pass the retreaved XML file location in to the
    onclick="milkbox.addGalleries('THE XML LOCATION')

    I would also like it done in once click on the login button but as you see from the code below you have to click the link to load the XML and then click the link to display it

    here is my code to my test page, there is not a lot there as im trying to get the functionality done first.

    <%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="Default.aspx.vb" Inherits="_Default" %>

            <br />
            <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="Label"></asp:Label>
        <br /><br />
    		<a href="#" onclick="milkbox.addGalleries('xml/galleries.xml')">Add some xml galleries (works only on a web server, not locally)</a>
    	    <br />
    		<a href="#" onclick="milkbox.open('xmlG2',0)">Show an xml gallery (add the galleries first!)</a>
    		<br />

    Thanks for your help.

    Is this a java question, or a javascript question? The two are completely different, and this is a java specific forums.

    Your code looks like javascript. Try posting the question on a javascript forum.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
