Hi:

I have a bit of code in one of my applications that looks like this:

$(document).ready(function () {
                $('.example4demo').popupWindow({
                    windowURL: 'http://www.etc...(real address taken out - it's good',
                    windowName: 'swip',
                    top: 50,
                    left: 50,
                    width: 1060,
                    height: 800
                    //centerBrowser: 1
                });
            });

Open in new window


Whenever I run the program locally, IE pops up an error message:

Unhandled exception at line 532, column 17 in http://localhost:51476/Home/EnrollmentModules/25269

0x800a01b6 - JavaScript runtime error: Object doesn't support property or method 'popupWindow'

It offers to open an exceptions window which I do and get totally lost (see attached)

The published version of the program works fine on line with ie 9 and 10, at least and all other browsers.

How can I get Microsoft to stop doing this to me on my local host?

Any help greatly appreciated.

I can't see anything attached ...
How are you including jQuery in your page as it looks as if it isn't loading at all when you run on localhost?

Do you load
http://swip.codylindley.com/jquery.popupWindow.js
correctly when you are offline?

You have to load JavaScript modules in a specific order for them to be recognized.

It appears jQuery is loaded OK but the popupWindow add-in is not. I have also seen issues where incluing two different versions of jquery could exhibit this problem

You can use IE's developer tools (F12)and tuen on the Network Capture and then refresh the page to verify you are loading the popup add-in and not getting a 404. Also verify you are not pulling in multiple jQuery javascript files.

Hi Thanks for this.

I'm an idiot - the problem is with all browsers and the error message is right

I was trying to load jquery twice - once in my _layout and once in my page just before the button that attached to the function.

I moved the load jquery to the top just after loading the css files and removed it from before the button in the markup and it seems to work now.  Thanks for your help!

One last note - I've never seen jquery loading at the top before - I guess this will slow down the rendering of all pages?

I load ALL scripts in the head. NEVER had an issue. These scripts are smaller than the average logo on the page

You can load jQuery at the bottom usually but before any add-ins. If the page has inline JavaScript then jQuery should load before that.

+1 mplungjan. I can't see any reason not to put all the script tags in the head. If coded properly you'll never have an issue
