TIP JQueryCompatibilityModePlugin is not installed on Foswiki.org.

JQueryCompatibilityModePlugin

This plugin is deprecated. Please consider taking the better alternatives like JQueryPlugin
Just the same as JqueryPlugin but using the compatibilty mode to provide use with other frameworks

Introduction

This plugin includes the jquery javascript library. In difference to JQueryPlugin it uses the build in compatibilty mode to not provoke a clash with $ in other frameworks like dojo or prototype

Usage

  • After installing the plugin, all you need to do is using $j instead of $ for accessing jquery.
  • In addition, you hava a global javascript variable Foswiki exporting the following Foswiki-intern values needed by most scripts
Value Foswiki Value
Foswiki.systemWeb The current Foswiki-System-Web
Foswiki.userWeb The current Foswiki-User-Web
Foswiki.pubUrlPath The current Foswiki pubUrlPath
Foswiki.scriptSuffix The current Foswiki scriptSuffix
Foswiki.scriptUrlPath The current Foswiki scriptUrlPath
Foswiki.viewScript The current Foswiki viewScript path

Hint:
If you enclose your javascritpt by the following general body, you can use this script in any enviroment, no matter to which variable JQuery is currently bind to. This would mean you could use this script with JQueryPlugin also or even in environments, where Jquery is bind to $foo
(function($) {
.
// global accessable function
window.myGloablFunc = function () { $("#foo").show() }
.
.
// local accessable function
function myGloablFunc () { $("#foo").show() }
.
.
})(jQuery);
You can use any shortcut variable you like in this code, so ;(function($foo) {..} would let you use $foo in for access JQuery

Included JQuery libraries

How to let JQueryCompatibilityModePlugin include your or other JQuery plugins

Run /bin/configure and under JQueryCompatibilityModePlugin you see in the bottom part, the plugin settings. There you can enter a comma seperated list of includes relative to the pub/System/JQueryCompatibilityModePlugin directory. This way you can include your own or specific JQuery-Plugins and script and dont need every application to care about that ( especially because they done know about the directory structure )

Any library missing?

There is a lot missing here, so this needs an update. Please send me a short note on what you want to add. Actually the policy is, adding anything which can be useful, so in 99% of the cases the library gets added directly!

Foswiki specific upgrades

Foswiki.Func

Actually this is nothing special in general, it simply a JS based Foswiki::Func. It trys to never query Foswiki as long as its possible but it provides always exactly the same interface as the Foswiki::Func counterpart. It is designed to return exactly the same results as Foswiki::Func would.
Yet implemented are:
name
getScriptUrl( web, topic, script )
getRestUrl( web, topic, plugin, restmethod )

DialogAPI

You can use the jquery.dialog api specific for Foswiki ( foswiki_specific/dialogAPI.js ). By calling the fetchAndShowDialog method

fetchAndShowDialog

Fetch, setup and show a dialog
parameter type default meaning
selector string required The div ID which should be used as the dialog-destination. Generally its a display:hidden
layer hidden somewhere in the layout. You must add a # to your id here, so if the id is
"example" you must use "#example" as parameter here
url string required url to fetch
arguments hash required Arguments hash


Hint to handler parameter: This is actually something you can use for rest-handler ajax-requests. As RestHandlers should do what they are for and end up with a 200 or other status codes. You can then use your own RestHandlers for e.g. doing something special if your request returns a 401. E.g. for some actions this could be "please login" for some "you have the wrong permissions"

setupDialog

Setup a dialog (not show)
parameter meaning
selector The div ID which should be used as the dialog-destination. Generally its a display:hidden
layer hidden somewhere in the layout. You must add a # to your id here, so if the id is
"example" you must use "#example" as parameter here
data the data the dialog should show
arguments Arguments hash, sees JQueryCompatibilityModePluginG

Arguments for the API calls

Hash-Key Type default meaning
title string required title of the dialog
modal boolean required should the dialog be shown modal, so you must close it before you can use the page further
width integer required size of the dialog
height integer required size of the dialog
stack boolean true should this dialog stack on the others
resHandlers hash responseHandler['other'] = 'generalRestResponseHandler';
responseHandler['200'] = 'handleDialogCompleteResponse';
responseHandler['401'] = 'generalRestResponseHandler';
responseHandler['403'] = 'generalRestResponseHandler';
responseHandler['500'] = 'generalRestResponseHandler';
An hash out of status codes and the function which should be called, when the fetch
request returns with such a status code Example:
handler['200'] = "handleSuccess";handler['401'] = "handleNeedLogin";handler['other'] = "handleGeneralResponse";
A special role has the 'other' key, which is called, when the response code
has no other handler, in our example status 500 or 501.
buttons hash A hash of buttons. Key is the button-label, the value is the method to call, when the button gets clicked

showDialog

Show a dialog, which was setup before
parameter meaning
selector The div ID which should be used as the dialog-destination. Generally its a display:hidden
layer hidden somewhere in the layout. You must add a # to your id here, so if the id is
"example" you must use "#example" as parameter here

hideDialog

hide a dialog
parameter meaning
selector The div ID which should be used as the dialog-destination. Generally its a display:hidden
layer hidden somewhere in the layout. You must add a # to your id here, so if the id is
"example" you must use "#example" as parameter here
