Scriptrunner - WebItem - Advanced Dialog example does not work when the open issues list is displayed.

I have followed the "Dialog (Advanced)" example described at https://scriptrunner.adaptavist.com/4.3.4/jira/fragments/WebItem.html and wired the dialog box to the javascript code listed at the same page.

If I display a single issue (e.g.  <jira_server>/jira/browse/OTMCOPY2-19), then everything works as expected and I am able to close the dialog box by means of the Close button.

On the contrary, if I display the list of open issues (e.g.  <jira_server>/jira/projects/OTMCOPY2/issues/OTMCOPY2-19?filter=allopenissues), then when I click on the Close button nothing happens and the dialog stays open.

Here is the rest end point code for your reference :

import com.onresolve.scriptrunner.runner.rest.common.CustomEndpointDelegate
import groovy.transform.BaseScript

import javax.ws.rs.core.MediaType
import javax.ws.rs.core.MultivaluedMap
import javax.ws.rs.core.Response

@BaseScript CustomEndpointDelegate delegate

showDialog() { MultivaluedMap queryParams -&gt;

    // get a reference to the current page...
    // def page = getPage(queryParams)

    def dialog =
        """&lt;section role="dialog" id="my-own-dialog" class="aui-layer aui-dialog2 aui-dialog2-medium" aria-hidden="true"&gt;
            &lt;header class="aui-dialog2-header"&gt;
                &lt;h2 class="aui-dialog2-header-main"&gt;Some dialog&lt;/h2&gt;
                &lt;a class="aui-dialog2-header-close"&gt;
                    &lt;span class="aui-icon aui-icon-small aui-iconfont-close-dialog"&gt;Close&lt;/span&gt;
                &lt;/a&gt;
            &lt;/header&gt;
            &lt;div class="aui-dialog2-content"&gt;
                &lt;p&gt;This is a dialog...&lt;/p&gt;
            &lt;/div&gt;
            &lt;footer class="aui-dialog2-footer"&gt;
                &lt;div class="aui-dialog2-footer-actions"&gt;
                    &lt;button id="dialog-close-button" class="aui-button aui-button-link"&gt;Close&lt;/button&gt;
                &lt;/div&gt;
                &lt;div class="aui-dialog2-footer-hint"&gt;Some hint here if you like&lt;/div&gt;
            &lt;/footer&gt;
        &lt;/section&gt;
        """

    Response.ok().type(MediaType.TEXT_HTML).entity(dialog.toString()).build()
}

 

As suggested by Jonny, I have added several console.log() to the javascript function of the example. Here it is:

console.log("Register function");
(function ($) {
    console.log("Called function with Atlassian's jQuery object: ");
    console.log($);
    $(function ( ) {
        console.log("Setup show event handler");
        AJS.dialog2.on("show", function (e) {
            console.log("Show event fired");
            var targetId = e.target.id;
            if (targetId == "my-own-dialog") {
                console.log("Target ID matched");
                var someDialog = AJS.dialog2(e.target);
                $(e.target).find("#dialog-close-button").click(function (e) {
                    console.log("close button clicked; shut this stuff down");
                    e.preventDefault();
                    someDialog.hide();
                    someDialog.remove();
                });
                // etc
            }
        });
    });
})(AJS.$);
The context used is atl.general

Here is an excerpt of the console output after the page is loaded

When I press the button for showing the dialog window the following output is printed to the console

XHR finished loading: "http://&lt;jira_server_address&gt;/jira/rest/scriptrunner/latest/custom/showDialog?_=1474546065767". batch.js?atlassian.aui.raphael.disabled=true&amp;locale=en-UK:175

Whereas the message "Show event fired" is supposed to be printed as well, but it does not.

I'd like a little more detail about the console.log calls you used. There are several layers of interest. Maybe try something like this to help narrow down what's happening:

console.log("Register function");
(function ($) {
    console.log("Called function with Atlassian's jQuery object: ");
    console.log($);
    $(function ( ) {
        console.log("Setup show event handler");
        AJS.dialog2.on("show", function (e) {
            console.log("Show event fired");
            var targetId = e.target.id;
            if (targetId == "my-own-dialog") {
                console.log("Target ID matched");
                var someDialog = AJS.dialog2(e.target);
                $(e.target).find("#dialog-close-button").click(function (e) {
                    console.log("close button clicked; shut this stuff down");
                    e.preventDefault();
                    someDialog.hide();
                    someDialog.remove();
                });
                // etc
            }
        });
    });
})(AJS.$);

Also, what contexts did you set your Javascript's web resource to display in? Are you certain that it includes the issue results screen?

I have updated my questions with your suggestions

Given that your code is trying to setup the event handler, but doesn't run when the event should be firing, you might try using some different contexts besides alt.general. You might also investigate the AJS object and make sure it has a dialog2 property when the script runs. If it doesn't exist when your script runs, but does exist when you check from the console (just run AJS.dialog2), then it's probably a timing issue. Try a different context, or maybe using a setInterval function to wait for dialog2 to be registered.
