J! 3.0 - developing component. Javascript error on add new

Post by steinarasb » Wed Mar 27, 2013 8:51 am

I'm in the process of porting a component I've developed from J! 2.5 to J! 3.0.
I've been following the instructions here:
http://docs.joomla.org/Developing_a_Mod ... oomla_3.0:

What happens now is that when I try to add a new "object" by clicking on the "New" button, I get a Javascript-error:

Code: Select all

Warning: Empty string passed to getElementById()
Error: TypeError: form is null
Not sure how to proceede from here, so I hope someone has a pointer...

There could be an error in your view or tmpl files. Since it's a javascript error it's hard to know the cause before looking at your code. Ensure your form in tmpl default is named correctly. Otherwise you can attach the files we have a look at your code.
The speed of two moving Objects increases as they converge towards each other.
