[Obj Error] on loading form

Feb 22, 2015 at 9:21 PM
Hi Kit,

I am using the following code in a CEWP on the child new item form.

<script src="/[Path]/jquery-1.11.0.min.js"></script>

<script src="/[Path]/sputility.min.js"></script>
<script> // url parsing from var urlParams; (window.onpopstate = function () { var match, pl = /\+/g, // Regex for replacing addition symbol with a space search = /([^&=]+)=?([^&]*)/g, decode = function (s) { return decodeURIComponent(s.replace(pl, " ")); }, query =; urlParams = {}; while (match = search.exec(query)) urlParams[decode(match[1])] = decode(match[2]); })(); // wait for the window to load $(window).load(function () { try { var urlValue = urlParams['ISUCat']; SPUtility.GetSPField('ISU Category').SetValue(urlValue); } catch (ex) { alert(ex.toString()); } }); </script> When I click on the link to the new form and error message appear reading [Obj Error], once you click OK the form appears with the field pre populated but the form doesn't behave correctly, can't save it.

I am using the SPUtility file from the sites main page, and have jquery1.11.2.

any help would be appreciated.

Ok so we know the error is happening within your try/catch because you are getting the alert message. This means it is either the urlParams line or something is wrong with SPUtility.

The only thing I notice is that you say you're using jQuery 1.11.2 but your include is 1.11.0. Can you give me an example URL as well?

Hi Kit,

Sorry for the confusion it is 1.11.2 we are using for jquery.

The URL calling the new form is done through javascript
<p><a onclick="javascript:NewItem2(event, &#39;[Path]/ISU/Lists/Tasks/NewForm.aspx?ISUCat=CGI&#39;); javascript:return false;" href="#" target="_self">Click to add a new Task.</a></p> I have tried it again today and for some reason the error is not appearing. Haven't changed anything from last week.

if there a way to debug for a more informative error message in case it reappears.

thanks for your assistance.

The error message is somewhat dependent on your browser but as long as you keep the try/catch in there you should be able to get more info. If the error happens again, you can use console.log with chrome or firefox to get more info.
