View Full Version : Passing data to function in an XTemplate?

23 Mar 2011, 7:43 AM
Hey, I need to calculate some values in an XTemplate. Have a look at the code

'<img src="{[this.findImage(user.Name)]}"/>', //this one does *not* work
'</br><span class="name">{user.Name}</span>', //this one works like a charm

Why is user.Name not accessible on the first line? The error I get is: "Uncaught ReferenceError: user is not defined"
On the second line where no function is called user.Name is accessible.

I tried adding some more {} to the code like this without any success :(

'<img src="{[this.findImage({user.Name})]}"/>', //still does not work

This is what you want:

'<img src="{[this.findImage(values.user.Name)]}"/>',

the 'values' is the key.
