GMSC - using scripting object in form:ready event

[ Edited ]

Hi all,


I have my own scripting object in java and I also use function from SCDefaultScriptingObject in 'form:ready' event called for workflow: 


IG.vent.on('form:ready', function () {



When I start workflow first time or if I click on "Reload Page" in workflow, I get:


"TypeError: undefined is not an object (evaluating 'SCDefaultScriptingObject().setZoomBox') (map.js,137)"

"TypeError: undefined is not a function (evaluating 'MyScriptingObject.setSomething()')') (init.js?v=636086837487998320,4)"


But when I start workflow second time, everything works fine (or if I start functions with button). I tried to add something like

MyScriptingObject = window.MyScriptingObject|| {};

to the beginning of the script, but it does not work either. I am using java 101.


How can I force GMSC to load scripting objects before my init function is executed? Any idea where the problem might be?

Hi Tereza,

short background information.


-> User starts the workflow

-> GMSC uses the FX webbrowser to load the requested workflow

-> the page was successfully loaded and the workflow fires form:ready

-> GMSC injects it's scripting objects

-> GMSC fires the smartclient:ready event


Therefore form:ready is the wrong event. Use 'smartclient:ready'


Best Regards,
