loads items from a file

promise load(string path,string type);

Parameters

pathstringthe path to the file
typestringoptional, type of data (json, csv, xml), json by default

Returns

promisea promise of data loading

Example

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

Details

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
