I am trying to test my variables in Javascript, but when I use the window.alert(variable); it pops up undefined.

I believe I declared the scope right, and yet this issue. Am I calling the element incorrectly in the function?

    You have a variable called "title", you have a function called "title" as well. That is confusing. It doesn't works.
    Besides that, in your function title (that you could change its name to "myTitle" for example for it to work) you're searching an item by ID but that tag doesn't has an ID just a NAME...
    changing the function name to "myTitle"
    changing your <input type ... > from name="titleName" to id="titleName" and obviously the function calling to the new name "myTitle" will be fine
    In your calcPay function you're trying to display the innerHTML of an input type text tag, so it will never work, change it for "value" instead

    Oh, and by the way.. if you change the name of your variable to something different, like varTitle (to avoid conflicts) then on your calcPay function you can simply do your alert(varTitle); and it will show the value you assigned to it on the onBlur event to the Title box :)

    I followed these directions and with a little tinkering I got it to work.

    Thanks!
