HI,
I installed jquery-ui using the command
npm install jquery-ui --save
And included it into my javascript file like :
var $ = require("jquery"), require("jquery-ui");
But on calling $("#dialog").dialog({ autoOpen: false });
I am getting the following error on console :
TypeError: $(...).dialog is not a function
$("#dialog").dialog({ autoOpen: false });
new.js (line 56, col 6)

what could be the reason for this ?
How to use jquery-ui ?
I am using webpack in my application to bundle modules.

Thanks

Shouldn't be this way?
var $ = require("./jquery"), require("./jquery-ui");

Open in new window

Hi,
./jquery will look for jquery file in current directory whereas i am using it through npm.
require(jquery) works fine... only problem when is when i include jquery-ui which ideally should have dialog function things dont work somehow..

Mybe you have to edit your webpack.config.js? I found that you have to add this:
resolve : {
    alias: {
      // bind version of jquery-ui
      "jquery-ui": "jquery-ui/jquery-ui.js",      
      // bind to modules;
      modules: path.join(__dirname, "node_modules"),
    }
}

Open in new window
