Simple XML strips onclick from HTML button

Builder

I am trying to do an onclick in a button in an HTML block in Simple XML:

<code>
<dashboard>
  <label>Test Button onclick error</label>
  <row>
    <panel>
      <html>
        <div>
          <button id="button" onclick="myfunction()" rover="dog">Click Here</button>
        </div>
      </html>
    </panel>
  </row>
</dashboard>
</code>

When it gets rendered, onclick is removed. Noticed I added a bogus tag and it was passed through.

<code>
    <div id="row1" class="dashboard-row dashboard-row1">
        <div id="panel1" class="dashboard-cell" style="width: 100%;">
            <div class="dashboard-panel clearfix">

                <div class="panel-element-row">
                    <div id="element1" class="dashboard-element html" style="width: 100%">
                        <div class="panel-body html">
                                <div><button id="button" rover="dog">Click Here</button></div>
                        </div>
                    </div>
                </div>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>
</code>

I am trying to execute a java script on demand from a link in an HTML panel.

Any ideas?

Try removing the Bootstrip div elements wrapping your submit button, replacing with a plain div, and sourcing your JavaScript from a .js file -- I was using

<div class="control-group">
    <div class="controls">
        <input id="submit_button" type="button" value="Click" onclick="alert('Test')" />
    </div>
</div>

and replaced it with

dashboard.xml

<input id="submit_button" type="button" value="Click"/>

dashboard.js

require([ "jquery", "splunkjs/mvc/simplexml/ready!"],
         function($){
            $("#submit_button").on("click", function (){
                 alert("Test");
            });
         });

I'm not sure why SimpleXML chomps the onclick, but this workaround helped.

@fk319 try removing any Bootstrap divs surrounding the input -- that was what fixed my issue while using your first link.
