How to access tag 'this' inside this.on('updated')

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 08:46:10 GMT

I'm trying to update an array every time my tag receives an update from parent tags. Here is my code: --- function(opts){ this.set = []; var self = this; this.on('updated', function(){ var obj = opts.my_topics; var better_obj = {}; for (var key in obj) { if (obj.hasOwnProperty(key)) { var topic_title = key; better_obj = obj[key]; better_obj['title'] = key; } } self.set.push(better_obj); }) } --- Whenever I try to push(), I get an error: `Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token ; database.js:60`. The moment I remove the line of code for the push, the error disappears. Am I using this/self wrong in this case or could it be something else?

What I am trying to accomplish here is taking an object from opts, receives regular updates, converting into an array, and using it for an `each` loop within my tag. I do not know how to do this other than a) rewiring my opts to deliver an array rather than an object, or b) accessing the tag's `this` within the `updated` callback.
