ACC not recognizing bracket notation javascript, always returns "undefined"

I'm attempting to craft a property accessor for referencing a set of mapped fields in our targetData, within our template, however ACC is not honoring our usage of the bracket notation, regardless of whether or not we surround the property/field name with double quotes.

Is this a known bug with a workaround or a patch?


<%
var td = {
    passholderName_1: 'passholderName_1',
    passholderName_2: 'passholderName_2'
}
%>

<%
var conditional = "passholderName";
for (var a = 1; a < 12; a++) {
    var value = td[conditional + "_" + a];
    if (value) {
%>
<%= value %>
<% } %>
<% } %>

Hi @JoshuelPattersonRM - I tested your code and it works fine in a delivery template.

You should probably change the for loop limit to 3 as you only have 2 array items, but otherwise it works fine.

Hi,

 

Use this:

<%
var td = {
  passholderName_1: 'passholderName_1',
  passholderName_2: 'passholderName_2',
}

Object
  .keys(td)
  .filter(function(k){return td[k]})
  .forEach(function (k) {%><%= td[k] %><% });
%>

 

Thanks,

-Jon
