QlikView Extenssion - How to make an Ajax call (in Javascript)

Hi everybody,

I start with QlikView extensions and I am facing a problem. I can not, since an extension QlikView, to make an Ajax call. I simplified my example to target a simple text document, which I would like to dynamically display content in the HTML body of extenssion. I'm using JavaScript (with JQuery) for scripting behavior.

I have a Definition.xml like that :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<ExtensionObject Label="Hello World" Description="Basic example">

    <Initiate Name="Chart.BgColor.ColorHex" value="#E0FFE0" />

    <Text Initial="" Expression="='Hello ' &amp; OSUser()"/>

</ExtensionObject>

And a Script.js, like that :

Qva.AddExtension('HelloWorld', function() {

    Qva.LoadScript("Extensions\Objects\HelloWorld\jquery.js" , function() {

        //alert("jQuery up"); // work!

    });

    var html = "";

    html += "<H1 style='text-align: center;'>"+this.Layout.Text0.text+"</H1>";

    html += "<p>Before</p>";

    $(document).ready(function() {

      $.ajax({

          type:     "post",

          url:      "Extensions\Objects\HelloWorld\texte.txt",

          dataType: "text",

          async :   false,

          success: function(data, textStatus, jqXHR){

            html += "<p>"+data+"</p>";

          },

          error: function(XMLHttpRequest,textStatus, errorThrown){

            alert("error : " + textStatus + "\n" + errorThrown);

          }

      });

    });

    html += "<p>After</p>";

    this.Element.innerHTML = html;

});

The file texte.txt is in the same directory, and It contains :


Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Sed non risus. Suspendisse lectus tortor, dignissim sit amet, adipiscing nec, ultricies sed, dolor. Cras elementum ultrices diam.

The Result is :

1) On refresh :

result1.jpg

2) After clicking OK on the popup box :

result2.jpg

Does anyone have an explication or some tips, I'll be happy.

Thanks you so much per advance.

Patrick

QlikView Extenssion - How to make an Ajax call (in Javascript)

To get data from server you should use GET request (not POST - instead of  type: "post" you should use type: "get"). Be sure you have properly formatted url. I think, your url "Extensions\Objects\HelloWorld\texte.txt" is wrong. Try like this: url: Qva.Remote + "?public=only&name=Extensions/HelloWorld/texte.txt"

Re: QlikView Extenssion - How to make an Ajax call (in Javascript)

$.ajax call is asynchronous. So, your html variable will contain '<p>Before</p><p>After</p>' text only before you will get some result from ajax request.
