Hello Hans,
Javascript does not allow using: {{value_text}} inside script blocks.

Is there some way?

O that very disappointing.
I always used the Spry data framework, but thats no longer supported.
But with the Spry data it was no problem to use {sprydatafield} inside javascript, like:
'{sprydatafield}'. It would replace it with the data.
It makes your product much more convenient if you could make it work!
Hope you can take up this challenge :-)

I was able to get this to work with kind of a work around:

lets say its an address you want to use: {{address}}. wrap it in a html tag of some sort:

<p id="myaddress">{{address}}</p>

Then inside your javascript use

and that will give you the value to use in javascript. You can also use a CSS to hide the paragraph so you can't see it but you can still put the DB value.

Thanx Baub,

that will work, but it is quite a work around with many values being used in my script.
But thank you for giving your suggestion!
