Qlik Sense Server Mashup - Referencing external javascript library

Hi all,

New to javascript so maybe asking a silly question here.

I am trying to use an external text editor tinyMce (TinyMCE - Home) within my mashup but am having some difficulties in connecting to the js file.

In my html file, I have referenced the file using the below code:

<script src="//tinymce.cachefly.net/4.2/tinymce.min.js"></script>

From here, I am not sure how to reference the external file in my javascript file.  I have the following code but it is throwing up a connection error:

function outputText(){

    require(["//tinymce.cachefly.net/4.2/tinymce.min.js"]);

   

     tinyMCE.init({

        mode: "textareas",

        theme: "simple"

    });};

Would appreciate any assistance on this particular issue but also in general on how to use external libraries in conjunction with mashups!

Cheers,

Joel

Some comments:

- RequireJS requires a callback, see How to get started with RequireJS

- remove the .js at the end, this will be added by RequireJS by default

So something like that:

function outputText(){

    require(["//tinymce.cachefly.net/4.2/tinymce.min"], function() {

        tinyMCE.init({

        mode: "textareas",

        theme: "simple"

        });

     

  });

};

Not tested ... but that's the direction I think.

Please mark the appropriate replies as correct or helpful so our team and other members know that your question has been answered to your satisfaction.

Hope this helps!

Hi @Stefan_Walther , thank you for the solution on mashup. I am trying similar thing into Extension but cannot get it work. I am post a question in community but no response. It took me more than a day and still no luck. Your knowledge might spot the issue very quick and save my day. Can you please review my code?

TinyMCE-Sense.js

define ([
	"./js/jquery.min",
	"./plugin/tinymce/tinymce.min",
	"./plugin/tinymce/init-tinymce"
], function () {
	return {
		paint: function ($element) {
			var html ="";
			html += '<body>' +
						'<textarea class="tinymce"></textarea>' +
						'<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.min.js"></script>' +
						'<script type="text/javascript" src="plugin/tinymce/tinymce.min.js"></script>' +
						'<script type="text/javascript" src="plugin/tinymce/init-tinymce.js"></script>'	+
					'</body>';
				$element.html(html)
		}
	};
});
