When I connect with the wires in the wall, the fixture lights up but I get no "on-off" function from the pull-chain switch.

Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. Connect one lead from the pull chain switch to the fixture blacks and the other to the hot wire. You need to break the hot to the fixture.
