View Helpers Asset Functions string controller


Returns a script tag for a JavaScript file (or several) based on the supplied arguments.

Name Type Required Default Description
sources string No The name of one or many JavaScript files in the javascripts folder, minus the .js extension. Pass a full URL to access an external JavaScript file. Can also be called with the source argument.
type string No text/javascript The type attribute for the script tag.
head boolean No false Set to true to place the output in the head area of the HTML page instead of the default behavior (which is to place the output where the function is called from).
delim string No , The delimiter to use for the list of JavaScript files.
encode boolean No true Use this argument to decide whether the output of the function should be encoded in order to prevent Cross Site Scripting (XSS) attacks. Set it to true to encode all relevant output for the specific HTML element in question (e.g. tag content, attribute values, and URLs). For HTML elements that have both tag content and attribute values you can set this argument to attributes to only encode attribute values and not tag content.
