    Onload text item would be null if your code runs before populating the actual apex item. Why dont you try the same code on button click.

    It will ensure the syntax you are using is correct or not. Also if you are using oracle workspace, share the link of application as well.

    javascript is case sensitive. Item IDs are generated in uppercase.

    Your page has 3 errors in javascript console. Correct them and then execute your javascript, it will probably run.

    [blocked] The page at '' was loaded over HTTPS, but ran insecure content from '…IN&itemFilter(2).value(1)=FixedPrice&itemFilter(2).value(2)=StoreInventory': this content should also be loaded over HTTPS.  f?p=56420:5:116547887824068::::::1

    Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token < f?p=56420:5:116547887824068::::::210

    Uncaught TypeError: undefined is not a function

    <h1>eBay Search Results</h1>

    // Parse the response and build an HTML table to display search results

    function _cb_findItemsByKeywords(root) {

      var items = root.findItemsByKeywordsResponse[0].searchResult[0].item || [];

      var html = [];

      html.push('<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="3"><tbody>');

      for (var i = 0; i < items.length; ++i) {

        var item     = items[i];

        var title    = item.title;

        var pic      = item.galleryURL;

        var viewitem = item.viewItemURL;

        if (null != title && null != viewitem) {

          html.push('<tr><td>' + '<img src="' + pic + '" border="0">' + '</td>' +

          '<td><a href="' + viewitem + '" target="_blank">' + title + '</a></td></tr>');




      document.getElementById("results").innerHTML = html.join("");

    }  // End _cb_findItemsByKeywords() function

    // Create a JavaScript array of the item filters you want to use in your request

    var filterarray = [










       "value":["AuctionWithBIN", "FixedPrice", "StoreInventory"],




    // Define global variable for the URL filter

    var urlfilter = "";

    // Generates an indexed URL snippet from the array of item filters

    function  buildURLArray() {

      // Iterate through each filter in the array

      for(var i=0; i<filterarray.length; i++) {

        //Index each item filter in filterarray

        var itemfilter = filterarray[i];

        // Iterate through each parameter in each item filter

        for(var index in itemfilter) {

          // Check to see if the paramter has a value (some don't)

          if (itemfilter[index] !== "") {

            if (itemfilter[index] instanceof Array) {

              for(var r=0; r<itemfilter[index].length; r++) {

              var value = itemfilter[index][r];

              urlfilter += "&itemFilter\(" + i + "\)." + index + "\(" + r + "\)=" + value ;



            else {

              urlfilter += "&itemFilter\(" + i + "\)." + index + "=" + itemfilter[index];





    }  // End buildURLArray() function

    // Execute the function to build the URL filter


    // Construct the request

    // Replace MyAppID with your Production AppID

    var keywe = "&keywords=query";


    var url = "";

        url += "?OPERATION-NAME=findItemsByKeywords";

        url += "&SERVICE-VERSION=1.0.0";
