First of all, this is my first time ever asking anything here so please be gentle.

I am developing this custom html.page(SharePoint Hosted App) for editing purposes of specific SharePoint lists. I have a client side people picker on the page (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj713593%28v=office.15%29.aspx) and everything is working fine until the following:

After getting the wanted User from the people picker and selecting it, i get the following Error:

"0x800a1391 - JavaScript runtime error: 'RemoveCssClassFromElement' is undefined".

The error happens in the _layouts/15/clientpeoplepicker.js reference file, but i have no idea where it tries to to get that RemoveCssClassFromElement() function.

Everything works perfectly if i run the code in default.aspx, but when in custom.html it doesn't

Any ideas?

Scripts i am using in my Custom.html (in order):

<script type="text/javascript" src="../../Scripts/lib/jquery-1.9.1.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/4.0/1/MicrosoftAjax.js"></script>
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.10.3/jquery-ui.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/init.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/SP.init.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/sp.runtime.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/sp.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/sp.core.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="../../Scripts/lib/angular.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="../../Scripts/lib/angular-route.min.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="../../Scripts/src/services.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="../../Scripts/src/controllers.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="../../Scripts/src/App.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="../../Scripts/init.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/1033/strings.js"></script>">
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/clienttemplates.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/clientforms.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/clientpeoplepicker.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/autofill.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="../../Scripts/PeoplePicker.js"></script>

UPDATE! picker control:

<div id="peoplePickerDiv"></div>
    <input type="button" value="Get User Info" onclick="getUserInfo()"></input>
    <h1>User info:</h1>
    <p id="resolvedUsers"></p>
    <h1>User keys:</h1>
    <p id="userKeys"></p> 
    <h1>User ID:</h1>
    <p id="userId"></p>

Custom.js is as it is on the MSDN link!

  • Can you please update the question with Custom.html file content (atleast the markup of the picker control) Dec 31, 2014 at 13:55

  • Please specify where the page is hosted. Are you building a SharePoint App? If that's the case, is it SharePoint-hosted or provider-hosted? Dec 31, 2014 at 15:00

The function "RemoveCssClassFromElement" is defined in core.js file. Just add reference to it in html markup.

<script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/15/core.js"></script>
