Declare it outside the function. Just make sure you don't re-declare is inside the function, else it will create a variable with local scope with the same name.


// Right
var myvar = "mystring";
function myfunc() {
myvar = "changed"; // this changes the global
}



// Wrong
var myvar = "mystring";
function myfunc() {
var myvar = "changed"; // Doh! We've just created a local
}
