JavaScript Error “˜expected identifier, string or number’ in Internet Explorer (IE)

Solution of expected identifier, string or number’ in Internet Explorer (IE) – javascript

Yesterday my friend come across a javascript error “expected identifier, string or number” in internet explorer (IE). The same code was running great in Mozilla and chrome. here the snap of code causing an error:

var horizontalTab = {
"MyProducts" :  [
					{
						"ImageName" : "my_products.png",
						"SelectedImageName" : "my_products_selected.png",
						"HoverImageName" : "myProductsHowerbottom.png"
					}
				],
"MyTeam" :  [
				{
					"ImageName" : "my-team-white_bottom.png",
					"SelectedImageName" : "my-team-bottom.png",
					"HoverImageName" : "myTeamBottomHover.png"
				}
			],
"MyFinance" :   [
					{
						"ImageName" : "finance_white-legal-Bottom.png",
						"SelectedImageName" : "finance-legal-bottom.png",
						"HoverImageName" : "FinancenLegalHoverBottom.png"
					}
				],
			 }

The javascript debugger displayed the error on function which does not have to do anything with actual cause. Luckily we observed the line 22, extra comma present at last declaration in JSON was causing this error.

I hope this article will help lots of people if they came across same problem and save hours.

    Hi,

    I have the message

    Error”expected Identifier, string or number coming up.

    Line 93

    Unfortunately, I’m no computer whiz and wouldn’t know where to begin to look for this or how to fix it. Also unfortunately, I’m not rolling in money! So, I was wondering if someone here might know where I could get step by step directions on how to cure this issue.

    It asks me if I would like to continue, I answer yes and am able to continue but as we all know, it’s terribly annoying to deal with continually. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Ed
