This call:


works very well for any url that does NOT contain 'civicrm/a/#'. As soon as I try to open anything from an extension, the popup stays 'white.' No errors. Just ... white.

Is there a way to make that work for such url?

    Did you try ASCII encoding? Try and replace the "#" with "%23" and see if it works. – Sleewok Dec 11 '18 at 14:47
  • Thanks, but that was the first thing I tried. It doesn't seem to have any effect. – Mike Steigerwald Dec 11 '18 at 17:20

    Do you have that problem using CRM.loadPage with the same argument? (Is is a problem with the form wrapper or is it the loading of that url.) – Luke Stewart Dec 12 '18 at 17:50

    And what is the result of running CRM.url('civicrm/a/#/tournament') in the console of your browser on a civicrm page? – Luke Stewart Dec 13 '18 at 19:06

    The # is usually used as a dummy anchor which is bound later by javascript to a click event, which then loads the content using ajax. So that binding is probably not happening when done standalone. See also docs.civicrm.org/dev/en/latest/framework/angular/loader. You may need to initialize the angular loader separately. – Demerit Dec 13 '18 at 20:53

How about just plain javascript:

window.open(CRM.url('civicrm/a/#/tournament'), 'mywindow', 'scrollbars=yes');

Obviously 2nd and 3rd parameters can be whatever you want.

Works on dmaster.demo.civicrm.org (with 'civicrm/a/#/caseType/new', since I assume "tournament" is something custom).

  • That renders the content I want, but also a lot more that I don't want, e.g., all the WordPress and CiviCRM menus. My attraction to loadForm was to avoid reloading all that from the server. – Mike Steigerwald Dec 14 '18 at 16:38
