Mootools: Class is not defined

Hi X-perts,

I am having conflicts with two 1.11 mootools libraries (one is a core mootools loaded by Joomla 1.5) and the 2nd one is from virtueMart. When I remove VM mootools I am getting an error:

Class is not defined
var MooPrompt = box = new Class({

I am getting lost: is there any additional mootools component I am missing here? why the class is not defined? I am attaching the complete code for this class

Please, advise
var MooPrompt = box = new Class({
	setOptions: function(options){
		this.options = {
			buttons: 1,
			width: 300, // Set width of the box
			height: 0, // Set height of the box (0 = sized to content)
			maxHeight:100, // Maximum height of the dialog box
			vertical: 'middle', // top middle bottom
			horizontal: 'center', // left center right
			delay: 0, // Delay before closing (0=no delay)
			overlay: true, // Cover the page
			showCloseBtn: true,
			effect: 'grow'
				// 'grow' - Expands box from a middle point and fades in content
				// 'slide' - Slides in the box from the nearest side.
			// button1: 'Ok' --- supply this for setting button text
			// onButton1: function --- supply function for button action
		};
		Object.extend(this.options, options || {});
	},

There is a file called Class.js, which contains the definition for the class "Class".

I am sorry, but there is no downloadable jscript on that page... it describes its usage only

It seems to be in the core, if you downloaded the full core. Check this in you core file, search for Class.js. If it's not in there then you need to download the full version on http://mootools.net/download.

If it IS in there, make sure you include it before you use the Class.

I think this error is because of some other reason. I have plenty of other references like

var QQQ = new Class...

The class is defined in the standard mootools base.... it IS there, otherwise, all other scripts would not work

wassa_rCommented:
And the other references are on the same page and don't give you any errors? If not, make sure you include the js before you use it. Don't know what else could be wrong...

The error was caused by NO mootools core script loading for an iframe (I was confused, because firefox showed an error in the main window and I was checking the source code for the main window). In fact, it is not possible to load core mootools lobrary without class.js, because it is integrated.

You can exclude it from the core by building your custom mootools file with the mootools builder on their site, but good it works for you know.

No, you cannot exclude class.js. It is not optional
