ActiveVFP: How do I pass a foxpro variable into a Javascript variable i.e cName below?
<% cName='GauldinMaurice'
use member in 0
if SEEK(lcName,'Member','name')
cName=ALLTRIM(Member.Name)
%>
<script>
    alert(cName+" is a Member.");
</script>
<% else %>
<script>
    alert(cName+" is not a Member.");
</script>
<% endif %>

Put the parameter like this:

alert("<%=lcName%> is a Member.");

The lcName is replaced in the HTML before sending so it can be inside quotes or inside HTML comments.

Personally I've changed all my site to AJAX and strictly avoid VFP in the HTML because if there's a syntax error you will never find it.
