12 May 2010, 6:25 AM
Hello all
i have following piece of js which uses spring taglib
the problem is that apparently extjs think is a javascript code and it gives me an error like 'missing closing character ']'

How can i escape the taglib instruction in extjs?

w/kindest regards

Tags in .jsps are processed before they are sent to the client, where the javascript runs.

So if you get a missing ']' error, then you are really missing a ']' (either in your .jsp or in the content generated by the tags).

If that error is being thrown by Javascript, then grab the javascript code, pass it through http://jsbeautifier.org/ and check it for errors.

You should be able to find the syntax error, then go back to your code generation JSP. You are just generating erroneous Javascript, and need to fix that.

The most likely culprit is a comma "," Think of the compiler, it's repeating its operation for every comma, but if no comma, then end terminate. If you didn't use a comma, it is expecting a "]" in an array.
