    Plugin i18Text not getting rendered.

    shipra Beginner



      I am creating a widget in which I need to make it multilingual.

      I have placed the key value pair in plugin_i18n.properties file.



      Value put in the file:

      custom.defaultMessage=Enter The Location


      I want to access this key from a js file which is in widget:


      var defaultMessage = {i18nText('custom.defaultMessage')};

      I am getting following error:


      "Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected string"


      I tried to display the key value from FTL:





      Can anyone let me know whats going wrong???


      I have done the same things in theme before.

      Used custom key.JIVE key but never faced any issue there.

          The JS string messages are not directly read from properties file as you have mentioned in above snippet, unless you have a Jquery plugin like this added in your file jquery.i18n.properties.js.


          Solution :

          Within the scope of your above code, you can define a div or a span(with display: none) like this in your FTL or soy file :

          1) <div class="custom-message" id="custom-msg" style="display:none"><@s.text name="custom.defaultMessage" /></div>


          2) Next, invoke this in your JS function like to show the div :

          $j(function() {



          3)  In your plugin_i18n.properties file, define your localized string which will be read in your FTL/Soy and later the same div/span will show up in JS.


          Please post your findings if that works !


          Cheers !

              Thanks Himanshu!


              worked like a charm.


              I am running into a new issue when I drag this widget more then once in the same page.

              I feel there is some js conflict happening. Have you come across a similar issue?


              If I drag the widgets then the panel of widgets is not getting loaded. There is no error in the console nor in sbs.logs.


              I am getting few warnings:

              3 scripts on this page are included more than once.
