JavaScript™ properties

If JavaScript™ is specified as the response format, the reply data is formatted to be parsed as a JavaScript™ include file.

A typical JavaScript™ properties response has this general structure:

           
<varname> 
 objectName.propertyName 
</varname>=' 
<varname>
  propertyValue 
</varname>' 
...

propertyValue can be empty. White space is optional at the beginning and end of each line and before and after the = separator. All values are enclosed by single quotes. Single quotes in strings are escaped with two consecutive single quotes.

To parse a JavaScript™ properties response, any object or objects referenced in the response must be created before the properties file is loaded. Following is an example for using req=props to obtain the response image size in JavaScript™:

<script> image = new Object; </script> 
<script 
src='http://myServer/is/image/myImage?req=props,javascript'> 
<script> alert("Size: " + image.width + " , " + 
image.height); </script>
