Experts, I need to print a client script value from a web control, but when printing the value the string seems to wrap to a new line thus triggering a JavaScript unterminated string constant error.

        protected override void Render(HtmlTextWriter writer)
        {
            writer.write("var MyVar = '" + this.ClientScriptValue + "';");
        }

Results in :

var MyVar = "<p>asdf</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>";

Any ideas?

Thanks for the tips!

Any specific reason for using HtmlTextWriter? An easier way would be to declare a literal control in ASPX
set its value to JS from code-behind

<asp:Literal id="lblJs" runat="server" />

from code-behind:

string strScript = "";
strScript = "<script langugage=\"javsacript\">var MyVar='"+this.ClientScriptValue+"';</script>"
lblJs.Value = strScript;

Nauman, this is actually a a web control not an aspx page.

public class MyCustomWebControl : WebControl
{

}

I could use a composite Literal inside the control, but wouldn't it present the same line wrapping issue as before?

HtmlTextWriter causes the above output since it behaves differently when you try to write something to the output. Try using composite Literal control and see if it solves the issue.

I ran into the same problem with the Literal control. It seems to add line breaks in the string. The string source is a txt file.

Here is a sample from the txt file:

<p>This is a test</p>
<p>Hey how are you?</p>

If I manually remove the line break:

<p>This is a test</p><p>Hey how are you?</p>

It works okay. Is there a way to do this programatically?

Thanks for your help!
