I have a simple js example to try. Here the code:

(function () {

    var overrideContext = {};
    overrideContext.Templates = {};
    overrideContext.Templates.Item = overrideTemplate;


function overrideTemplate(ctx) {
    return "<div style='font-size:32px;border:solid 1px Silver;'>" + ctx.CurrentItem.Title + "</div>";

after that I simply add this js to site assets and set into webpart properties. But nothing happens...

enter image description here

and nothing is changed... enter image description here

Am I missing something?

  • Did you check whether the JSLink file is loaded? You can use the developer toolbar of your browser to see which script files are loaded.

  • nice question. I did it, but i can´t see the js file inside dev tools (IE and Chrome). I try alert("boo"), inside js file too, but not working. I think that js file is not loading... but why?

In your webpart properties, instead of refering the JS file with absolute URl refer like this


Instead of Site Collection URL, specify ~sitecollection

  • I try: ~/SiteAssets/XTR/JSTest.js, ~SiteAssets/XTR/JSTest.js , /Sites/Portal/SiteAssets/XTR/JSTest.js, ... allways the same . Is because the SiteAssets library?
