Escaping { in custom module code
 
So I figured out how to make a new module
(http://kb.x-cart.com/display/XDD/Creating+sidebar+menu+in+customer+area was a good guide).

I am using my sidebar module to display some code from MailChimp - a newsletter signup. I would also like to use it to display my sharing icons from ShareThis.com.

However, using { } doesn't work - gets ignored. What's the escape character or some workaround?

HTML Code:

<script type="text/javascript">stLight.options({publisher: "redacted", doNotHash: false, doNotCopy: false, hashAddressBar: false});</script>

This may be a very newbie question but I haven't found the answer yet.

Thanks in advance!

Either use {literal} tag or replace { } with {ldelim} {rdelim}
Code:

{literal}<script type="text/javascript">stLight.options({publisher: "redacted", doNotHash: false, doNotCopy: false, hashAddressBar: false});</script>
{/literal}

Code:

<script type="text/javascript">stLight.options({ldelim}publisher: "redacted", doNotHash: false, doNotCopy: false, hashAddressBar: false{rdelim});</script>

Oh, just like in X-Cart 4. I forget so soon! :-) Thanks, I'll give it a try.

Oh sorry this is for XC5. That won't work. What I said applies to smarty, you have to find the alternative for Flexy

Flexy should be ignoring {} inside of a <script> element. http://pear.php.net/manual/en/package.html.html-template-flexy.attribute.tojavascript.php

Your JS code looks odd to me. Where is the example of proper setup from ShareThis?

You can see this straight from sharethis.com. You don't have to specify a site but you do need to log in.

HTML Code:

<script type="text/javascript">var switchTo5x=true;</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://w.sharethis.com/button/buttons.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">stLight.options({publisher:  "b4f4f721-de8b-4e2f-8c74-d5175ea04b23", doNotHash: false, doNotCopy:  false, hashAddressBar: false});</script>



Publisher value was "redacted" in earlier code post.

Sharethis wants the code in the <head> actually. (I'll take advice on how to do that as well...) I have another module (MailChimp) that also needs {'s, not in the <head>.

Things that haven't worked so far (assume the complementary closing tag):
{literal} around script line
{
\{
{{
{{{

Hi haleystudio!

You are right, Flexy thinks that {publisher: } is a call of method getPublisher() and that is why omits everything after ':' character.

You can work around this problem if you add method like getShareCode() into your PHP class. This method would return the needed JS code. Then, you should call {getShareCode()} in your template and the JS code will be properly added there.

Tony.

Actually, what I'm seeing in the "view source" of the web page for that line is
HTML Code:

<script type="text/javascript">stLight.options();</script>
so I think it's ignoring everything inside the {}'s.

Exactly.

Anyway, approach I suggested above should help.

Thanks for helping with this Tony, I forgot about this thread. Tony has the right idea, just put the share code in a method inside the controller class and call it in the template.
