  • Closed as fixed if next.

Error description

  • IBM Process Designer marks correct JavaScript syntax as
    incorrect when an object is passed into a function inline, such
    as
    
    callFunction({a1: "test1"});
    
    Although the code executes correctly, Autocomplete does not work
    at authoring time because of the error marker in the JavaScript
    code.
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED:
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
    

Local fix

  • Workaround 1:
    
    var a1 = {....}
    callFunc({...})
    
    where {...} is a JavaScript object (essentially JSON).
    
    callFunc is a function defined somewhere in the JavaScript, for
    example
    
    function callFunc(aVariable) {
                     //do something
     }
    
    Therefore, instead of entering
    
    callFunc({name: "Joe"});
    
    assign the object to a variable and call the function using this
    variable, for example,
    
    var person = {name: "Joe"};
    callFunc(person);
    
    Workaround 2:
    
    At development time, comment out the wrongly marked line of code
    to keep up running Autocomplete.
    

Problem summary

  • No additional information is available.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix will be incorporated into a later release that fixes the
    JavaScript validation parser so it recognizes inline object
    creation during a function call.
    

Temporary fix
