httpObject.onreadystatechange passing a variable to function - type mismatch error

I'm trying to create a generic AJAX function that has the data field passed to the function in order to return the results to the proper place.

Oddly enough, this does not work if I comment out the 'alert' line in the set_output, however it does work if I have it pop up those variables.

Either way, I do still get a type-mismatch on the line:


I figure that is because you shouldn't pass variables to a function in this way.



Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

what would you expect from this script



now what do you expect
httpObject.onreadystatechange = setOutput(error_output, field_output); to do compared with var x = foo()?

You need to use a closure.

I'm new to closures, but I understand what that example script does. I'm not sure how to apply it to my script.
