Default Type a bullet point in the English.js file

I have a handful of rules that I write in most of my projects. To save some time I've added them to my English.js file to access and write much quicker. My question is:
Does anybody know how to type a bullet point in the .js file so that it actually comes over as a bullet point?

I've tried \"•\"
But it returns "â˘"

I've tried escaping the bullet too \"\•\"
But it returns the same thing.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Default Re: Type a bullet point in the English.js file

That's a Unicode character, but the RuleTemplates.English.js file is saved with 8-bit ANSI encoding. You can do any of the following to make it work:
  • Save the file as Unicode, either UTF-8 or UTF-16. (In Notepad2, select Encoding -> Unicode, and re-save the file. Other text editors have different ways of specifying the encoding.)
  • Use the Chr function to call out the character by its Unicode code point, specifically: Chr(8226).
  • Use a Unicode escape in a literal string, with \u followed by the code point as four hexadecimal digits, specifically: "\u2022".
  • Use JavaScript's unescape function with a string literal containing an escaped character notation, specifically: unescape("%u2022").
  • Use JavaScript's decodeURIComponent function with a string literal containing escaped UTF-8 characters, specifically: decodeURIComponent("%E2%80%A2").

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});
