I am using the following JavaScript code in a .html file for my Jetty web application:

<script id="user-template" type="text/x-handlebars-template">
    <img src="assets/images/admin/redminus.png" class="user-delete-img">
    <div class="user_name admin-users-span-1">{{username}}</div>
    <div class="user_email admin-users-span-2">{{username}}</div>
</script>

The above script works. It obtains the "username" variable as expected. I am creating another .html file where I am using the same "username" variable but I am experiencing problem with syntax and it is not working. The following are the .html file code. I have written three versions of it. Could you please let me know which one has the correct syntax? The first one did not work. If none has the correct syntax, could you please help me correct it?

1.
<script id="footer-template" type="text/x-handlebars-template">
        <img src="http://mypage.com/t.png?t=map&p={{username}}"/>
</script>

2.
<script id="footer-template" type="text/x-handlebars-template">
        <img src="http://mypage.com/t.png?t=map&p="/>{{username}}
</script>

3.
<script id="footer-template" type="text/x-handlebars-template">
        <img src="http://mypage.com/t.png?t=map&p="{{username}}/>
</script>

What did not work with the first one? How did it render in your page source? Does t.png exist in the root directory?

I see version 1 as being correct. Here is an example of how each would render if username was johndough:

Version 1 would include johndough as a parameter on the image path with proper html syntax:
        <img src="http://mypage.com/t.png?t=map&p=johndough" />

Open in new window


Version 2 would render the image with an empty parameter for "p=" and the username "johndough" rendered in plain text next to the image.
<img src="http://mypage.com/t.png?t=map&p=" />johndough

Open in new window


Version 3 the image path would end with an empty "p=" and the username would likely cause the image to appear broken since it is not defined as being part of valid html code.
<img src="http://mypage.com/t.png?t=map&p="johndough />

Open in new window


If you create an image tag manually on the page, using a real username in the parameter string, does it render properly? For example:

        <img src="http://mypage.com/t.png?t=map&p=replacewithrealusername" />

Open in new window
