How can I run some JavaScript after my display template has loaded. I have tried:

AddPostRenderCallback(ctx, function () {     
    jQuery(document).ready(function () {

but that doesn't work. .ms-srch-hover-subTitle is getting added from the display template. so I want the display template to be put on screen and then for the js to run

  • Can you please explain what you mean by that didn't worked? Dec 23, 2014 at 14:25
  • ran before display template was loaded Dec 23, 2014 at 14:26

You are registering on load event. Instead modify as follows

AddPostRenderCallback(ctx, function () {     

Also take a look at this Run any other javascript after the Display Templates have rendered the content

  • that has the same result Dec 23, 2014 at 14:29
  • can you please explain what .ms-srch-hover-subTitle this control does. Is it getting populated from the display template? Dec 23, 2014 at 14:33
  • yes it's getting populated from the display template Dec 23, 2014 at 14:35
  • Can you please add more code. Dec 23, 2014 at 14:35
  • @Dillydallydave I have added a link. Also check that and make sure you are following the correct way. Dec 23, 2014 at 14:46

SharePoint does provide a few options.

1) Script on Demand: (load a js file then execute my code.)

function stuffThatRequiresSP_JS(){ //your code } SP.SOD.executeFunc("sp.js")

2) Delay until loaded (wait for a js file, then run)

function stuffToRunAfterSP_JS(){ //your code } ExecuteOrDelayUntilScriptLoaded(stuffToRunAfterSP_JS, "sp.js")

3) load after other stuff finishes

function runAfterEverythingElse(){ // your code } _spBodyOnLoadFunctionNames.push("runAfterEverythingElse");

ExecuteOrDelayUntilScriptLoaded: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff411788(v=office.14).aspx
