@bspindia, Are you sure keep still set up the Embedder properly? 🤔 Make sure you put in the "dropins" script, at least (the Dropbox object comes from there).

 

PS: Make sure you remove all possible typos in your code! 😉 (Drobox ≠ Dropbox)

if i wouldn't appended the dropoin script to body, how would anchor tag embed will work ?

 

function textBookLibrary(){
$(".mNavCntnt").empty();
$(".mNavCntnt").append(
$("<div>").attr('class','tbContainer').append(
$("<div>").attr('name','subject').text("Health and Physical Science"),
$("<div>").attr("name",'chapter').append(
$("<span>").text("Chapter 1")
),
$("<a>").attr({
//'height':'400px','width':'200px',
//'frameborder':'0',
'class':'tbLesson',
'type':'application/pdf',
//'src':'assets/textBooks/jehp1ps.pdf',
}).addClass('dropbox-embed')
)
)
 
/*
let options = {
// Shared link to Dropbox file
file: {
// Sets the zoom mode for embedded files. Defaults to 'best'.
zoom: "best" // or "fit"
},
folder: {
// Sets the view mode for embedded folders. Defaults to 'list'.
view: "list", // or "grid"
headerSize: "normal" // or "small"
}
}
Dropbox.embed(options,$(".tbLesson"));
 
*/

@bspindia Importing the dropins.js script is required for both ways of using the Embedder (that is, via anchor tags or via JavaScript). Make sure you set it up as shown in the documentation.

Hm.. 🤔 .. Ok. What's the issue now? Is it still not defined? 🧐 or...

@bspindia Using Dropbox.embed is currently working for me. As Здравко noted, I see the latest code you shared is not the same as you originally shared though. So, can you confirm what error you are currently getting? If you're still seeing an issue, it would be useful if you share the exact code and steps you're using that reproduce the issue, as well as the full/exact error you're getting.

Need more support?
