load()

loads items from a file

load(url: IDataProxy | string, driver?: IDataDriver | DataDriver): Promise<any>

Parameters:

  • url: IDataProxy | string - the URL of an external file or DataProxy with the URL configured
  • driver: object | string - optional, DataDriver or type of data ("json", "csv", "xml"), "json" by default

Returns:

A promise of data loading.

Example

myToolbar.data.load("[path to this file]/file.xml", "xml");

The component will make an AJAX call and expect the remote URL to provide valid JSON data.

Data loading is asynchronous, so you need to wrap any after-loading code into a promise:

myToolbar.data.load(url).then(function(){    //do something after load;});

or

myToolbar.data.load(url);myToolbar.data.loadData.then(function(){    //do something after load;});// loadData executes a callback function after an asynchronous// data loading has completed
