missing ) after argument list error

Hi all,
I try to call onchange a function and get "missing ) after argument
list" error
Probably systaxis issue
Thanks in advance for any help!

Code:

var html = "";
var myurl = "http://www.example.com/url.php?dummy=";
html += "<form id='idnumber' method='get' name='formnumber' action='#'
>";
// hier is the problem place
html += "<select name='name_sel' onchange='My_Function(myurl +
this.form.formnumber.options[this.form.name_sel.options.selectedIndex].value ,My_function_2 ,
parameter3)'>";

html += "<Option selected='selected' value='opt0'>option 0</option>";

var z
var ind = new Array("option 0","option 1","option 2");
for (z in ind)
{
html +="<option value" + ind[z] + ">" + ind[z] + "</option>";
}

html += "</select></form>";

Hi, Randy
myurl variable doesn't work. it shows myurl instead of text in it
so I escaped properly:
var myurl = '\"http://www.example.com/url.php?dummy="';

with no luck

alert shows

<select name='name_sel' onchange='My_Function(myurl +
this.form.formnumber.options[this.form.name_sel.options.selectedIndex].value ,My_function_2 ,
parameter3)'>
don't know what to do...
Thanks a lot!

I've also tried this
<select name='name_sel' onchange='My_Function(\"http://www.example.com/
url.php?dummy=\"' +
this.form.formnumber.options.name_sel[selectedIndex].value ,My_function_2 ,
parameter3)'>
no luck...

Are breaking a string literal up on multiple lines??

Or is that your NNTP posting client wrapping lines?

If the former, your error is obvious, and you need to understand how to
continue a string literal on multiple lines.
