    Question Calling a function using a button

    Hi there,
    beginner here.

    I'm trying to create a very simple webpage using Googles Geocharts which is written in JavaScript.

    More specifically I'm using this script from Geochart which simply outputs a world map in which the US is highlighted:
    Code:
    <head>
    
    <script type='text/javascript' src='https://www.google.com/jsapi'></script>
    	
    	<script type='text/javascript'>
    	  
    		function geochart() {
    		  
    			google.load('visualization', '1', {'packages': ['geochart']});
    			google.setOnLoadCallback(drawMarkersMap);
    
    			function drawMarkersMap() {
    				var data = new google.visualization.DataTable();
    					data.addColumn('string', 'City');
    					data.addColumn('number', 'color');
    					data.addRows([['USA', 1]]);
    
    				var options = {
    					region: 'world',
    					displayMode: 'regions',
    					colorAxis: {colors: ['white', 'red']},
    					backgroundColor: 'cyan',
    					legend: 'none',
    					height: 347,
    					width: 556
    					};
    
    				var chart = new google.visualization.GeoChart(document.getElementById('MAPHERE'));
    					chart.draw(data, options);
    			};
    		}
    		
    	</script>
    </head>
    When calling the function in my page's body with:
    Code:
    <body>
    <div id='MAPHERE'></div>
    <script>geochart();</script>
    </body>
    it outputs the map just fine.

    But when instead I try to call the function using an event listener:
    Code:
    <body>
    <div id='MAPHERE'></div>
    <button type="button" value="Highlight US" onclick="geochart()">
    </body>
    it doesn't work.

    Any idea why?

    I'm basically doing this.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thank you.

    it's something about the callback function that I don't really understand, but you can get it working this way, anyway...

    Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    
    </head>
    <body>
    
    <script type='text/javascript' src='https://www.google.com/jsapi'></script>
    	
    	<script type='text/javascript'>
    	  var data,options;
    	google.load('visualization', '1', {'packages': ['geochart']});
    	google.setOnLoadCallback(drawMarkersMap);
    
    			function drawMarkersMap() {
    				data = new google.visualization.DataTable();
    					data.addColumn('string', 'City');
    					data.addColumn('number', 'color');
    					data.addRows([['USA', 1]]);
    
    				options = {
    					region: 'world',
    					displayMode: 'regions',
    					colorAxis: {colors: ['white', 'red']},
    					backgroundColor: 'cyan',
    					legend: 'none',
    					height: 347,
    					width: 556
    					};
    				
    			};
    	
    function show(){
    var chart = new google.visualization.GeoChart(document.getElementById('MAPHERE'));
    					chart.draw(data, options);
    }
    	</script>
    	<div id='MAPHERE'></div>
    <button type="button" onclick="show()">Highlight US</button>
    
    </body>
    </html>
