This article explains the meaning of syntax error and it is important to understand why this error is triggered. In order to understand the issue and fix the problem, a walk-through has to be performed. “The missing after argument list” message shows that there is a possibility of syntax error within the method. This is probably due to the comma used erroneously where the list of arguments is not followed by other arguments.
Now we are going to provide a few examples. In the example below, we used Math.random() function to generate rapidly random numbers. But this function doesn’t work as the “+” operator is missing. Therefore, an error is triggered.
The above error was triggered due to the missing “+” operator in the console.log function. So, you can easily fix this bug by inserting the “+” operator in the console.log function as shown in the example below.
The concatenation of two strings is illustrated in the example shown below. But the document.write() function doesn’t work as the “+” operator is missing. Therefore, an error is triggered.
Above mentioned error was triggered due to the missing “+” operator in the document.write() function. So, you can easily fix this bug by inserting the “+” operator in document.write() function as illustrated in the below-mentioned example.
In the example below, we simply concatenate two strings by using the “+” operator but an “invalid or unexpected token” error is triggered. This error is triggered due to a typo error.
If you want to fix this bug then you have to insert “ ‘ “ as shown in the example below.
