Hi, I am trying to us the html5 data bindings to display data from a json document but cannot get any data to display in live view.

I have validated my json file and it checks out as valid.


when I try using the repeat region I just see a white page and when I try non-repeated elements I either see - NaN, a white page or the actual code.

I have verified that all scripts are uploaded so I feel like I'm missing something simple.

my os is mac yosemite and dreamweaver cc. Below is some of the code I have tried with no luck.






<script type="text/javascript" src="ScriptLibrary/jquery-latest.pack.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="ScriptLibrary/dmxDataBindings.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="ScriptLibrary/dmxDataSet.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
/* dmxDataSet name "transactions-data" */
jQuery.dmxDataSet(
{"id": "transactions-data", "url": "data.json", "data": "", "dataSourceType": "local", "dataType": "json"}
);
/* END dmxDataSet name "transactions-data" */
</script>

<body>

{{transactions-data.TotalResults}}

</body>


thanks in advance

Shot in the dark....

Try removing any hyphens used in data sources, aliases, columns Etc..

Hi Glenn,
As Dave suggests - the problem is with the "-" in the datasource name please use an underscore "_" instead.

I have this problem too. Using OSX Yosemite, Dreamweaver CC 2015.

I have checked that all the scripts in ScriptLibrary have been copied into the directory correctly. There is also an empty 'dmxDatabaseSources' folder which the extension has created, along with an empty 'Styles' one. I have checked that the json is valid, which it is.

When I run the page in the browser it just returns the tag {{monthname}}

Here is my code...

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="ScriptLibrary/jquery-latest.pack.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="ScriptLibrary/dmxDataBindings.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="ScriptLibrary/dmxDataSet.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
/* dmxDataSet name "dec" */
jQuery.dmxDataSet(
{"id": "dec", "url": "december.json", "data": "", "dataSourceType": "local", "dataType": "json"}
);
/* END dmxDataSet name "dec" */
</script>
</head>

<body>
<div data-binding-id="repeat1" data-binding-repeat-children="{{dec}}">{{monthname}}</div>
</body>
</html>

I am having the same problem too. I have been banging my head against a wall for a couple of days now. PLeae, Teodor, put me out of my misery!

Here is a sample page: whytes.ie/html5test.html

And the code
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<script type="text/javascript">
/* dmxServerAction name "HTMLtestExecutor" */
jQuery.dmxServerAction(
{"id": "HTMLtestExecutor", "url": "dmxConnect/api/NewTest.asp", "method": "GET", "sendOnSubmit": false, "sendOnReady": true, "data": {}}
);
/* END dmxServerAction name "HTMLtestExecutor" */
</script><title>Untitled Document</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="ScriptLibrary/jquery-latest.pack.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="ScriptLibrary/dmxDataBindings.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="ScriptLibrary/dmxDataSet.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="ScriptLibrary/dmxServerAction.js"></script>
</head>

<body>
<div data-binding-id="repeat1" data-binding-repeat="{{HTMLtestExecutor.data.queryHTMLtest}}">{{AUCTION}}{{IMAGE}}</div>
<div data-binding-id="repeat2" data-binding-repeat="{{HTMLtestExecutor.data.queryArtists}}">{{FIRSTNAME}}{{LITERATURE}}</div>
</body>
</html>

Hi Conor,

Somehow the script block containing dmxServerAction is way above all other includes in your head. It should be placed actually before the body end tag. So move the whole block just before </body>

Thanks for the response, George, but I'm afraid it didn't solve the problem. I have two pages, both with the same problem. I implemented your change, and still no joy.
whytes.ie/html5test.html
theoriel.com/expert/artists.html

Could you post a simple page with working code, so I could at least have a target to aim for?

Hi Conor,

I see you are running Server Connect on ASP server - we have some issues there with the new global debug flag we introduced in the last update. So a new update will be released very quickly now on Monday/Tuesday to fix this.

I look forward to the update.
