I created a custom docusign button on a salesforce object to send a document. the button is a javascript button. I received the error "Unterminated String Constant". What's supposed to happen is the user clicks the button and a custom subject line and message would appear.

  • You can't have string literals in a javascript variable. – Adrian Larson Nov 4 '16 at 15:00
  • Adrian, please explain? I'm new to javascript and would like to understand what you mean. – Chad Nov 4 '16 at 15:00

You can't declare multi-line strings in Javascript. Here is your issue:

 CEM = 'Dear {!mergeField}

 More Text

 ...';

Instead, you could concatenate the string if you want to break it up onto multiple lines:

CEM = 'Dear {!mergeField}' +
    'More Text' +
    '...';

If you want to include literal line breaks in the string, you can include the '\n' character. It's unclear how Docusign will handle that, though.

CEM = 'Dear {!mergeField}' + '\n\n' +
    'More Text' + '\n\n' +
    '...';

The problem 1 is with multi-line string literal.

'line 1 line 2'

has to be transformed to 'line 1\n'+ 'line 2'

Problem 2: if you pass something as url params - use encodeURI

try this

{!REQUIRESCRIPT("/apex/dsfs__DocuSign_JavaScript")}
//********* Option Declarations (Do not modify )*********//
var RC = '';var RSL='';var RSRO='';var RROS='';var CCRM='';var CCTM='';var CCNM='';var CRCL=''; var CRL='';var OCO='';var DST='';var LA='';var CEM='';var CES='';var STB='';var SSB='';var SES='';var SEM='';var SRS='';var SCS ='';var RES='';
//*************************************************//
SES = '1';
SEM = '1';
CES = encodeURI('{!Risk_Management__c.Legal_Contract_Name__c}:Old Republic-UM/UIM Coverage Selection/Rejection Forms');

CEM = encodeURI('Dear {!Risk_Management__c.SignerName__c}\n\n'

To create mulitline strings in JavaScript, you should use template literals.

{!REQUIRESCRIPT("/apex/dsfs__DocuSign_JavaScript")}
//********* Option Declarations (Do not modify )*********//
var RC = '';var RSL='';var RSRO='';var RROS='';var CCRM='';var CCTM='';var CCNM='';var CRCL=''; var CRL='';var OCO='';var DST='';var LA='';var CEM='';var CES='';var STB='';var SSB='';var SES='';var SEM='';var SRS='';var SCS ='';var RES='';
//*************************************************//
SES = '1';
SEM = '1';
CES = '{!Risk_Management__c.Legal_Contract_Name__c}:Old Republic-UM/UIM Coverage Selection/Rejection Forms';

CEM = `Dear {!Risk_Management__c.SignerName__c}
