Reference a .js file on a spribbon custom action elements.xml

on my javascriptmethods.js file:

function test(){
  alert('test message.');}

on my custom action elements.xml:

    ScriptSrc="/_layouts/.../javascriptmethods.js" Sequence="100">

   <CommandUIHandler Command="MyCommands.Alert"
   CommandAction="javascript:test();" />

not working, what's missing?

Everything works fine, I've even created a test project for you: http://www.4shared.com/zip/EwqRtH6c/ScriptLinkTest.html. Look at it. Did you check your js file is loaded correctly on the page?

  • this was the mistake Location="CommandUI.Ribbon" thanks a lot for your help
