    I'm trying to create a control designer but getting a javascript error in the script file.  At line 2 below the error is "function expected".  What did I miss?.

    1.refreshUI: function () {
    2.       var data = this._propertyEditor().get_control();
    3.       jQuery("#Title").val(data.Title);
    4.   },

    Hello Dallas,

    The PropertyEditor represents dialog control for editing control properties.It gets  or sets the reference to the parent property editor control when you have more than one view in the control designer ( for instance NewsControlDesginer) - get_propertyEditor()

    You should use

    // gets the javascript control object that is being designed
        get_controlData: function () {
            return this.get_propertyEditor().get_control();
