I'm using Ajax calls to pull in data for a table and I have successfully been able to pull in data for Chrome and everything shows up perfectly fine, but my table is not wanting to show up in IE at all and I don't know why.

Chrome: enter image description here

In IE, it's not showing up at all.

Here is the code:

    function onSuccess(data) {

        var tableContent = '<table id="TablePanel" border="1px;"><thead><tr><th>Franchise Number</th>' + '<th>Franchises with Shared Owner</th>' + '<th>Franchise Name</th>' +

    function ExportTable() {
            headings: true,
            footers: true,
            formats: ["xls", "csv", "txt"],
            fileName: "id",
            bootstrap: true,
            position: "top",
            ignoreRows: false,
            ignoreCols: false,
            ignoreCSS: ".tableexport-ignore"

Does anyone know what might be preventing it? or someone that has had this issue before?


You didn't write which exactly error is showing up in IE, but based on the code I can see one thing that doesn't work in IE. That's the arrow functions syntax that you use when you call the map function.

Try changing the parameter you pass to the map function in all three instances from this:

results.map(r => r.Title).join('; ')

to this:

results.map(function(r) {return r.Title;}).join('; ')
  • Hey Damjan, I ended up figured out the problem - When I transscripted my code to babel it now works, mysteriously.

  • @SaintLouisEvents It works because Babel transpiles your ES6 code to be ES5 compliant. Arrow functions were introduced in ES6 and are not supported by Internet Explorer. So Babel "translates" them to the older standard in the way that Damjan wrote.

  • Ahh, that makes so much more sense! Thanks for clarifying that.
