Because of smarty's default curly bracket ({}) tags, you need to use the smarty {literal} tag to echo out your variable value to a javascript one. Remember javaScript is client side, server does not execute it like smarty and php, the user's computer browser executes it.

You can also print it out to a hidden field and read it using javascript. document.getElementById('hiddenFieldsID').value. or using jquery: $('#hiddenFieldID').val()

Good luck,
