I am developing custom Module in Magento 1. Now I would like to load my module specific JS file when the module enabled. In this regard I used below xml code in a separate xml file named as module name which is placed inside layout folder. My module don't have any controller.
<default> <reference name="head"> <action method="addJs"> <js>brand_logo.js</js> </action> </reference> </default>
But the JS file is not loading at the time of module loading.
How can I do that??
You can check, if in your module configuration file - here is the path:
the layout file is set:
<frontend> ... <layout> <updates> <modulename> <file>modulename.xml</file> </modulename> </updates> </layout> ... </frontend>
If you also need the script to connect only, if the module is enabled, perform the following: add "ifconfig" parameter with the path to configuration option that enables/disables the module in your layout. Here is an example:
<default> <reference name="head"> <action method="addJs" ifconfig="modulename/general/enabled"> <script>filename.js</script> </action> </reference> </default>
Thanks @PlumrocketInc for your reply . I used your code like below but it is not working.
<?xml version="1.0"?> <layout version="0.1.0"> <default> <reference name="head"> <action method="addJs" ifconfig="brandlogo/general/enabled"> <script>brand_logo.js</script> </action> </reference> </default> </layout>
What should I write here ??
In "ifconfig" - you need to specify the path to the option of your module, which responds for its enabling/disabling.
This option should be created by yourself. System configurations are set in the following file:
If you do not have such option, in this case you do not need to specify "ifconfig", as your script will not connect.
Thanks @PlumrocketInc for your reply. Actually there is no such option (enabling/disabling) in my module. I am describing the scenario here. I can add a js file using page.xml file. In that case my js file will load each and every page, each and every condition. But I don't need that. I need only when my module is exist then my js file will load.
How can I achieve this target ??
Um, if the JS is part of your module then it mean a priori that it only gets loaded when your module exists?
Thanks @Pronto for your reply. But your words are not clear to me. Could you please explain a bit more??
