For a simple html page, I'm fine getting it to work; however, in Plone, it dispalys but the actions don't work. Based on my research, it looks like for Plone it is not as simple as pasting JS into the raw HTML.
i am using Plone 5 with Embed Portlet because it allows me to add html.
when I add this JS:
-------Choose a Selection-------
So, am I correct in that one or both of these sites shows how JS is added and simply pasting as part of raw HTML won't get it done.
Thanks for pointer. If it is (for me) as complicated as above, that will tell me I can either use simple HTML hyperlink from the portlet or hire a programmer if I want JS.
Note: I just noted that above the Block where code is added in the embed Portlet, is the following text:
So, should JS work here?
You dont say what console output you get after pasting js in the embed portlet. I think it should work as it is meant to bypass plone security if its the one I think. If I'm wrong then it is safehtml stripping out js and this js for security reasons.
Either way its really not a nice way of doing it.
Better to follow the tutorial to get a js file included in your page and then use some jquery onload to attach the behaviour to your select by Id. You can also add include a js file in your theme just via the theme editor the manifest. None of that zcml needed
@hvelarde thanks for the suggestion. I tried this in Plone 5. I instlled as described, and the installed/activated the product. all went fine.
Then I tired to add it to a portlet and got the "Modal" error. Here is the error details.
