onAfterUpdate does not fire


I might be missing something here, so hopefully it’s something simple that someone can spot that I’m missing.

I’m trying to save data from a popup window (just like the popup from the Contact Manager sample).

						//open popup window
						var popupWindow = layout.dhxWins.createWindow("newStudent_win", 0, 0, 400, 400);
						popupWindow.setText("New Student");
						//add form
						var addStudentForm = popupWindow.attachForm();
						var dpfs = new dataProcessor("php/student_details.php");
						dpfs.attachEvent("onAfterUpdate", function(sid,action,tid,xml_node) {
							//	alert("inserted!");
							//	dpg.ignore(function() {
							//		studentsGrid.addRow(tid, [addStudentForm.getItemValue("firstName"),addStudentForm.getItemValue("lastName")], 0);
							//		alert("ignore!");
							//	})
						addStudentForm.attachEvent("onButtonClick", function(name, command){

It seems like I can’t get dpfs to fire. I receive the alert “dpgs.sendData”, which indicates that it passes the event when I click on the “Save” button in the popup window. Data is also saved to the database. However, since dpfs doesn’t get to “onAfterUpdate”, I don’t get the alert for “action”, and the popup window doesn’t close (when the line is uncommented).

I also tried using “onAfterUpdateFinish”, that didn’t work either.


Here’s the debug log:

Be sure that

a) both connector.js and dhtmlxdataprocessor.js are included on the page
b) connector.js is included AFTER dhtmlxdataprocessor.js
c) if you are using latest dhtmlx component - you need to use latest version of connector as well. ( included in component’s package )

Hi Stan,

Thanks for the reply.

I tried your suggestions, the only change I made was to move connector.js to be after dhtmlxdataprocessor.js. onAfterUpdate still does not fire.

The versions that I’m using are:

  • dhtmlxConnector_php_v10_110725
  • dhtmlxSuite 2011 Rel.1 (DHTMLX 3.0) build 110713

Any other suggestions?

Thanks so much,

Try to update connector.js and dataprocessor.js to the latest version (attached)

Hi Stan,

Thanks for your reply.

I downloaded your zip of the latest versions of connector and dataprocessor. This did not resolve the issue.

I’ve uploaded my files to my other thread, if you want to take a look.

Thanks so much!

Problem was in dhtmlxdataprocessor_debug.js, just remove it or replace with the attached one.

Hi Stan,

Thanks for looking into this.

How did you debug it to conclude it was the dataprocessor_debug?

p.s. did you attach the correct version of it?


Sorry, forgot to attach the fixed file somehow :confused:
Here it is

How did you debug it to conclude it was the dataprocessor_debug?
Just checked call stack of js error (one of default features of Chrom-dev-tools), which occurs while after-saving callback is processing.
