I have this custom action in sharepoint where the page will be redirected to another url but the components of the URL are dependent on a fielvalue in its parent folder, Request Failed. Specified Argument was out of Range, Parameter Name: Index undefined keeps popping up every time i press the button for the first time, but after that the code runs smoothly

here is the part of my code where the error occurs

                        function getParentFolder() {
                            var defer = $.Deferred();
                            var urlParams = new URLSearchParams(window.location.search);
                            var myParam = urlParams.get('RootFolder');
                            //var context = SP.ClientContext.get_current();
                            var web = context.get_web();
                            var folder = web.getFolderByServerRelativeUrl(myParam);
                            context.executeQueryAsync(function (data) {
                                // onFolderSucceeded(folder)
                        }, function(sender, args){
                            defer.reject(sender, args);
                        return defer.promise();

its goes to defer.reject every time i press button for the first time

  • Update: I found out that the 'data' in my context.executeQueryAsync(function (data) is not defined during the first click, but in the following clicks the data is a SP.ClientRequest Dec 7, 2018 at 4:56
  • Does this also appear if you wrap SP.SOD.executeFunc('SP.js', 'SP.ClientContext', function() { }); around your code?
