Hi,

I am attempting to pass a variable from a function in C# to my Javascript via InvokeScript, with the following code
String name = ".username";
Actions.InvokeScript("buildPath(name)");
however when I investigate the name variable on the javascript side, it is listed as an empty string. I've spent a good amount of time looking but have yet to see any hint that I am doing something wrong.

Any assistance would be highly appreciated.

Hello Peter,

To invoke a Javascript function with a variable as parameter should first escape the string (name in your case) and then call it as a variable. Your code should look like:

String name = "'.username'";
Actions.InvokeScript("buildPath("+name+")");

Here is a short video that demonstrates it against a sample html application. 

Hope this helps.
All the best,
