Do you have a sample of using syncfusion with webpack module loader 

I have a grid working but when I enable edit functionality I get an error when creating the grid

"Uncaught TypeError: n.templates is not a function"


t.gridFeatures.edit.addEditingTemplate @ ej.web.all.min.js:10

I suspect this is due to webpack not correctly loading dependencies eg jsrender? - when I check in the console jsrender is loaded together with jquery

I'm able to bind the grid to an odata serivce but only with edit capability switched off

Could you give me any ideas on what the issue might be?

Hi Richard,

We have analyzed the reported query and we suspect that the cause of the issue may be referring different version of jQuery script file in the same sample.

So please ensure that only one jquery file has been referred in your sample.

If you still face any difficulty, please share the below details with us which will be very helpful for us to assist you accordingly.

1.       If there are any special characters in your dataSource field, then we may get that error on editing. So please the data structure of the dataSource that you have bound to the grid.
2.       Please share the order of the script files that you have referred in your project.
3.       Please share your grid rendering code with us.
4.       Also, please share more and clear details on the files you have loaded using the webpack module loader.

Please get back to us if you need any further assistance.

Thanks for the response - I suspect this was an issue with loading some of the dependent jQuery plugins - most likely JsRender - I was able to compare with the samples which worked correctly

I then changed the configuration of the webpack bundling to load the pre-req JQuery plugins via the "script-loader" mechanism which worked

Yes I am trying to use webpack.   webpack runs (and produces the bundle)  OK but I am getting an error.
Here is a link to a sample (supplied by SyncFusion) which I am modifying --  Project






'use strict';
var path = require('path');
var buildPath = path.resolve(__dirname, 'build');
var webpack = require("webpack");

function absPath(_path) {
    return path.join(__dirname, _path);

    context: __dirname,
        entry: "./entry.js",
    output: {
        path: path.join(__dirname, './dist'),
