Passing a Smarty array to javascript Function

P: 33
I am trying to pass a smarty array to a javascript function

what is he easiest way to pass the values? I tried these code but not working. Please help me where i am wrong.


$url_names = array();
$sql = "SELECT `page_url` FROM ".TABLE_USER_PAGES." ";
$result = $uk->tep_mysql_query($sql);
while($rec_url = mysql_fetch_row($result)){
$url_names[] = $rec_url[0];
$smarty->assign('url_names' , $url_names);


Template file

{include file=page_head.tpl}
<script language="javascript">
var regex_alphanumeric = /^[a-zA-Z0-9\-\_\s]{2,}$/;
function chk_url(url){
//var m = new Array();
if (!regex_alphanumeric.test(document.create_form.pag e_name.value)) {
alert("Page Name seems to be invalid, please check it");
document.create_form.page_name.focus(); return false;
for(var i=0; i<url.length;i++){
if(url[i] == document.create_form.dispname.value) {
alert("Page Name already exist, please try another");
document.create_form.page_name.focus(); return false;


<form name="create_form" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<table width="100%">
<tr><td><input name="page_name" type="text" class="textbox1" id="page_name" value="{php}echo $_POST['page_name']; {/php}" size="60" maxlength="60"></td></tr>

<tr><td><input type="text" name="page_title" class="textbox1" size="78" value="{php}echo $_POST['page_title']; {/php}" onFocus="return chk_url('{$url_names}')"></td></tr>

Thanks in advance

your html page is looking like this right now:

[HTML]onFocus="return chk_url(',,')"

Right? (look at the page source code to see) It is not converted into array by js. (as you are expecting in the function), you have to adjust your php code to generate output like this:

[HTML]onFocus="return chk_url(['','',''])"
