As recommended in various posts I changed the way the functions load from

$(document).ready(function() { 


SP.SOD.executeFunc('sp.js', 'SP.ClientContext', functionname);

Works great with the following expection:

I have several pages where several webparts each load a separate SP.SOD.executeFunc(). One webpart loads a SP.SOD.executeFunc() that creates a JumboTron then below it a different webpart loads three SP.SOD.executeFunc()s to create three columns of output.

Not a problem for Chrome but it appears that IE 11 does not like SP.SOD.executeFunc() loads spanning webparts as the Jumbotron loads but the three columns fails - no error just does not excute. I had to create a new webpart that loaded all the SP.SOD.executeFunc()s in order to work in IE 11.

SP.SOD.executeFunc('sp.js', 'SP.ClientContext', functionjumbotron);
SP.SOD.executeFunc('sp.js', 'SP.ClientContext', functioncolumn1);
SP.SOD.executeFunc('sp.js', 'SP.ClientContext', functioncolumn2);
SP.SOD.executeFunc('sp.js', 'SP.ClientContext', functioncolumn3);

Question is there another way to load these so it can span webparts?

  • Yes I placed all the SP.SOD in a single webpart at the bottom of the page.

This code is the basic implementation of LoadSodByKey, this is the best implementation of the function as it has the override to allow you to have a callback for when the script is loaded.

After jquery is loaded, the anonymous function will write "Hello World" to the console

<script type="text/javascript">
   LoadSodByKey("js/jquery-1.9.0.min.js", function () {
       console.log("Hello world!")

These are my thus far best practices for loading and using scripts, and I will continue to update this post as time goes on, and understanding of this increases.

OR you can use below



A full working compatible pattern for doing this is: Note the called JS file needs to be registered, and run the Notify SOD command

// Callback method
var callback = function () {
    // Code goes here

// Expected namespace after loaded
var namespace = "SP.RequestExecutor";

// SOD Key of target js file
var key = "sp.requestexecutor.js";

// Load straight away, or in queue
var bSync = false;

SP.SOD.executeFunc(key, namespace, function () {
    console.log(key + ": Type available (" + namespace + ")");
}, bSync);

// Execute when script has notified loading (Event call)
SP.SOD.executeOrDelayUntilScriptLoaded(callback, key);
