JavaScript


Add-ons may insert JavaScript  for loading via the HTML <head> of your templates using the following global variables. Make sure to include valid  <script> </script> tags around any inserted JavaScript. These variables are:


1: $jscript - JavaScript added to this global variable will be loaded into the main template via the {load_js} template tag.

2: $jscript_last - JavaScript added to this global variable will be loaded into the main template via the {load_js_last} template tag.


You must concatenate any Javascript additions to the end of the existing variable content using:


<?php

       global $jscript;


       $jscript .= '<script type="text/javascript">your JS code</script>';

?>


using .= instead of = appends (concatenates) your custom Javascript code at the end of the existing OR JavaScript already stored in the global $jscript variable so the existing content is not overwritten with your add-on's JavaScript code. You MUST declare the $jscript variable as a global variable in your function(s) before appending your custom JavaScript code.


Use these variables in any add-on specific function(s) that require jQuery or JavaScript.


Ajax

Add-ons can make use of the "ajax.php" file and its functions included in Open-Realty's administration area for functionality or processes that do not need to involve the template engine.  


The add-on will need to have a function named:


name_run_action_ajax()


The name_prefix should be changed to match the add-on and add-on folder name in the same manner as other add-on functions documented elsewhere.



Add-ons can also make use of the "ajax.php" file and its functions included in Open-Realty specifically for the site visitor (public) area of the web site for functionality or processes that do not need to involve the template engine.


The add-on will need to have a function named:


name_run_user_action_ajax()


The name_prefix should be changed to match the add-on and add-on folder name in the same manner as other add-on functions documented elsewhere.
