Adding <td> to a <table> through Onclick

P: 106
I have a table at which i need to add fields in it whenever the user clicks on the Add button , here's my trial but seems sth is wrong :
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. function AddTool()
  2.     {
  4.           formdiv = document.getElementById('1');
  5.           formdiv.innerHTML = formdiv.innerHTML +'<td align='center'><a href='#'><img border='0' src='../images/delete.gif'></td> ';
  6.     }
thats the Js function
and thats the table which is generated through looping:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. $query=mysql_query("select * from textures"); while($row=mysql_fetch_array($query))
  2.  {
  3.     echo "<div id='1'"></div>;                                
  4.   echo "<td align='center'>$row[texture_name]</td>";
  5.   echo"<td align='center'><a href='#'><img border='0' src='../images/delete.gif'></td>";
  6.   echo "</tr>";
  7.     }                          
any help is greatly appreciated

some notes:
- opening <tr> is missing (typo?)
- strictly speaking, "1" is not a valid id and an id must not occur more than once (currently you add the same id to every row)
- more strictly speaking, a <div> belongs into <td> not outside
- if innerHTML is not supported use the DOM methods (createElement(), appendChild(),...), a table row can be accessed as _table_.rows[_row_number_]
- be careful where to add the table cell, it may break your table layout

Okay,Now i made it and the new Row is added successfully to the table
but i wonder how can write a JS variable inside HTML

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. formdiv.innerHTML = formdiv.innerHTML +'<td align=center>JS VARIABLE</td>'+'<td align=center><a href=#><img border=0 src=../images/delete.gif></td>';
