Gary.A.Peach: formatting jsx

jmail: It was silent error - I do not know what has happened

GUEST: throw error when format javascript code of react.the code has include jsx tags,I think this error's reason is netbeans support react not perfect.

GUEST: An exception is thrown when I right click the mouse and select "Format". Code completion using TAB also don't work, for example if I type "cl" then TAB, an exception is also thrown.

var React = require('react');
var AddItem = React.createClass({
    render: function () {
        return (
                <form id="add-todo" onSubmit={this.handleSubmit}>
                 <input type="text" required ref="newItem"/>
                 <input type="submit" value="Hit me"/>
    handleSubmit: function() {

module.exports = AddItem;
