how to call javascript code filename in email delivery template

Avatar

Level 1

Hi Friends,i have a question and it would be helpful if i get the solution.

 

Created a javascript code with function abc() and the filename as "xyz.js".

In Campaign email delivery template i have used the below code to call the function and the javascript filename:

 

<script src="xyz.js"></script>

<%=abc()%>

 

But i am getting an error like abc is not defined.

do i need to load the file to pick the particular filename?

in the advanced javascript code use the loadlibrary to load the library and then you can call the function.

Hello @ashajosh 

 

Can you share more details on what you are trying to do with the javascript in the delivery template.

 

Calling javascript with <script> tags is not the right way in adobe campaign. You can use loadLibrary('NAMESPACE:JS_FILE_NAME')

 

Thanks,

Yes, for that you can add all your coding the advanced tab of the delivery activity and then once you have the word then store it in a delivery variables and finally call that variable in the HTML

Hi,

 

The <script/> tag is rendered client-side, and immediately stripped by every email client since its invention.

If you're trying to use a server-side include, those are unavailable to the MTA process.

You can include JS with personalization blocks (I usually do this), or by eval()'ing response from delivery query (for cross-purpose JS).

 

Thanks,
