    not able to change global variables (newbie)

    Hi,

    I am totally new to javascript..plz help me.

    My problem
    ----------

    1. I am taking data by opening text file from the server using javascript XMLHttpRequest
    2. Using that, i am planning to plot data....


    In the following code , i am setting global variable inside for loop ..

    but i am not able access that outside the loop..

    It is totally newbie....

    Here is my html page:
    --------------

    <html>
    <head></head>
    <body>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    var txtFile = new XMLHttpRequest();
    var lines=new Array();
    var strHTML=new Array();
    var nooflines=""; ///// <<<<<<< global variable noofline
    txtFile.open("GET", "serverfile.txt", true);
    txtFile.onreadystatechange = function() {
    if (txtFile.readyState === 4) { // Makes sure the document is ready to parse.
    if (txtFile.status === 200) { // Makes sure it's found the file.
    alert(txtFile.responseText);
    allText = txtFile.responseText;
    lines = txtFile.responseText.split("\n"); // Will separate each line into an array
    nooflines=lines.length; //// i have set that golabl variable here
    for (i = 0; i < lines.length; i++) {
    //document.write(lines[i]+"<br>");
    sublines = lines[i].split(/\s/);

    //DATE:021211 H:02 M:15 S:35 CPU:55 RT:44 HEAP:20 BUFF:2 TAR:1010 OSPF:110 DR:220 LOCALR:750 FLOW:20100 MAX:100500 FCPU:60 FMEMO:95


    for (j = 0; j < sublines.length; j++) {
    //document.write(sublines[j]+"<br>");
    }

    }
    }
    }
    }
    txtFile.send(null);

    document.write(nooflines+"<br>"); // but i am unable to acces that here

    </script>

    </body>
    </html>

    You're making an asynchronous request, which has not completed at the point that you call document.write.


    Q: I found this code...
    A: Then find its author.
