Can JavaScript be included in a leaflet popup?

We have modified this example

To this :-

var this_marker = L.marker([51.5, -0.09]).addTo(mymap).bindPopup(
 '<div style="color: red">Hello<br>world<script>console.log("testing");

This gives an error.

In our application we see the correctly formed HTML with script tags but the JavaScript does not run.

  • It would help if you put up a minimal code example in jsFiddle or similar. Commented May 14, 2016 at 14:38

  • Do you want to execute code right after the popup has been opened? Commented Jun 7, 2016 at 9:41

Your code above works great without the <script> tag once its removed, like so:

var this_marker = L.marker([51.5, -0.09]).addTo(mymap).bindPopup
('<div style="color: red">Hello<br>world</div>').openPopup();

If you are trying to add in additional JavaScript functionality to the popup when its open you could use a selector such as:

mymap.on('popupopen', function() {
