    resolved [RESOLVED] Cannot get alert() to work

    I want to use a button with an onClick(), but I am missing something in the syntax. For testing, I am using the alert() function. Can you point out what I am missing?

    </head>
    <body>
    <input name="btnOrder" type="button" value="Test" onClick="alert(\'Hello\'")>
    </body>
    </html>

    Feeling a little dumb,

    Code:
     
    <input name="btnOrder" type="button" value="Test" onClick="alert('Hello');" />

    That works! However, when I go to the next step, open a window, my code is not working.

    Fang - First, thank you! Second, my apologies. I consider this site to be a valuable resource, so I kick myself when I take "bandwidth" with dumb mistakes.
