Designer troubleshooting

Usually problems with the designer occur when JavaScript libraries are initialized incorrectly.

For Designer versions that come with Workflow Engine 3.0 and later

The following libraries are required by Designer:

In order to troubleshoot Designer, open the browser console by pressing the F12 button. Copy the error text and send it to us.

1. A conflict between Semantic UI and Bootstrap is possible

Styles and JavaScript libraries may conflict with each other. If you are using Designer in a Multipage Application (MPA) and if Bootstrap's JavaScript code is not called from the Designer page, then you should not face any issues. In Single Page Applications (SPA) and on mixed MPA pages you should load JavaScript libraries in the following order: first, you should load the Semantic UI library and then Bootstrap. In this case, there will be no conflicts leading to the inoperability of Designer or Bootstrap. The CSS load order does not matter since the CSS conflict has been eliminated in Designer's CSS.

For Designer versions that come with Workflow Engine versions earlier than 3.0

In order to troubleshoot Designer, open the browser console by pressing the F12 button.

Here's a list of typical errors:

1. Error: "Object does not support property or method 'dialog'"

You haven't initialized JQueryUI or you have included JqueryUI twice.

2. Error: "Unhandled exception at line 5, column ....... in ...../Scripts/workflowdesigner.min.js"

You are using an incompatible version of jQuery.

Please use the following scripts: jquery.js and jquery-ui.

3. Problems with mouse control in Chrome

In some cases AdBloсk blocks some mouse events.

To resolve the issue you need to disable AdBloсk and restart your browser.

4. Error: "Object doesn't support property or method 'addEventListener'" in InternetExplorer

Follow these instructions.

5. Error: "0x... - JavaScript runtime error: Unspecified error." from kinetic.js library

This happens when the library can't download images. Check that the path to images configured for the Designer object at imagefolder: '/images/' property exists and contains images for Designer.
