Using Jquery ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been trying

    to build the tutorial using Jquery but it does not Work. Ajax using Jquery only works for Local Files not for Remote while WinJS XHR works

    console.log('Data is Here');
    Is there a workaround for Jquery Ajax to Work.

    Edit: I have found the way to parse request data from WinJS XHR. The request data is a promise Object. You need to pick up the XML Data returned.
    However, Jquery Ajax for Cross Domain is still not working for me 

    var $xml= $(request.xml);

    If I use WinJS.xhr to do cross domain Ajax, then i process data using Jquery but that does not work either
    function processPosts(request){
    var $xml = request.responseXML.selectNodes("//item");
    $xml.find("item").each(function() {
            var $this = $(this),
                item = {
                    title: $this.find("title").text(),
                    link: $this.find("link").text(),
                    description: $this.find("description").text(),
                    pubDate: $this.find("pubDate").text(),
                    author: $this.find("author").text()
            //Do something with item here...

    Kindly, Guide me  .....

  • Hi Engineer Head,

    When you debug this code, what is not working?  Do you get XML back?  Is it the parsing that is not working?

  • replace the following

     var $this = $(this),

    line with 


    var $this = $(this);

    you were missing the ';'. Hope that helps!
