I have a situation where I am dynamically building a list of links on a page. When the user clicks on a link I want to call a javascript function passing an object which was created when the page was dynamically built. It appears I am passing the object correctly since when I mouse over the Test link, the browser says [object Object]. The problem is, when the user clicks on the Test link and the testPassObj function is called, a javascript error is thrown saying obj.getFoo is not a function. This indicates to me that obj is not an objectX instance. Any feedback on how I could get this to work would be appreciated.

    <script type="text/javascript">
	function objectX() {
		var foo = "";
		this.setFoo = function( newFoo ) {
			foo = newFoo; 
		this.getFoo = function() {
			return foo;
	function testObj() {
		var objInstance = new objectX();
		objInstance.setFoo( "bar" ); 
		//testPassObj( objInstance ); //-- This works
		document.getElementById( "content" ).innerHTML = "<a href='javascript:testPassObj(" + "\"" + objInstance + "\"" + ");'>Test</a>";
	function testPassObj( obj ) {
		alert( "testing 2: " + obj.getFoo() );  //-- this should say 'bar'
<body onLoad="testObj();">
	<div id="content"></div>
