    How to fix the errors?

  • This isn't valid jsrender syntax. {{{pdfAddPageItem :ClientName}}}.
    We have couple of jsrender examples in our docs

    Particularly this one should help


    Or switch to handlebars which is a bit covered in the demos and exmaples.

  • @jan_blaha can you let me know how can I pass a value?
    Instead of just passing a number here?
