Thanks Roan, that helped a bit. You were correct, the myFunc() definition had to be placed before the src. Through further research I discovered (what I believe is) the exact API call that I need for the output that I desire. However, I'm still having trouble with JavaScript accessing the returned value from the callback. At this point, I'm trying to assign the callback value to a variable and print it to the screen to confirm that I have what I'm after. So far, the only value I've been able to retrieve from the callback is:
[object Object]

What I'm after is what is printed to the screen when you go to the following link:

Does anybody see where I'm going wrong or have any suggestions?


<script type="text/javascript" >
function myFunc(str){
 //var testVar = JSON.parse(str);

 //location.href = ""+str;
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

Thanks again,

I'm not sure you can mix src="" with content like that. Try using 1)
separate tags for the src="" script and the myFunc() definition and 2)
putting the myFunc() definition *before* the src=""
