Simple External jQuery Templates (Update)

with 5 comments

In my previous post I made some code available that would allow you to access external templates all in the same jQuery chain. Unfortunately, I discovered a few bone-head mistakes in the code the next day while I was using it.

The new code has been uploaded and the bugs (the ones I found) have been fixed. If you have anymore feedback, please let me know.

    • Yes, it should be the same location – What is the error you are having? Are you getting exceptions or just things not appearing as expected?

      • Hey Hugo, thanks for your quick response, I think there is something failing with the update command, the ajax call to get the html template get executed, but the returned object seems to be the original empty object 😦

        Maybe I’m just missing something, this is the template I’m using and the call I’m making

        Error string%%errorString%%
        Has Error%%hasError%%

        var list = $.template({
        template: “Templates/ResponseHeader.html”,
        externalData: recommendationsResponse

        where recommendationsResponse is a json object

      • “recommendationsResponse” is a JSON object or a path to some JSON on the server?

        The reason I ask is because externalData is intended for loading json content from the server while the property data is for actual JSON objects in the browser. So for example…

        data:{ some:"object", in:"browser" },

        … as opposed to…


        You can send me a message on my Contact Form on my site and I can discuss it with you some more via e-mail.

        I hope this helps!
