Hi, I am trying dynamically push values from a Page Control into some inline JavaScript in a .ss Template as such:

<% control MyControl %>
<% end_control %>

The JavaScript that gets outputted to HTML is:


That is, all values come out blank. I know this control has data because if I remove the script tags within the control block the values appear in the HTML fine.

Is what I am trying to do possible?? If so, what am I doing wrong?

So do you mean if you take off the script tags then the value gets printed, if so a work around solution will be to add those scrip tags out of the <% control %> block.

Out of question don't you need quotes around the argument you pass to the js push method?
