function PageMethod(fn, paramArray, successFn, errorFn) {
var pagePath = window.location.pathname;
// Create list of parameters in the form:                                  |
// {"paramName1":"paramValue1","paramName2":"paramValue2"}                 |
var paramList = '';
if (paramArray.length > 0) {
for (var i = 0; i < paramArray.length; i += 2) {
            if (paramList.length > 0) paramList += ',';
paramList += '"' + paramArray[i] + '":"' + paramArray[i + 1] + '"';
paramList = '{' + paramList + '}';
//Call the page method
