#18385 assigned defect

"dojo/text" not work on Windows Phone 8 platform.

Reported by: remy314 Owned by: Bryan Forbes
Priority: undecided Milestone: 1.15
Component: Core Version: 1.10.1

Blocked By: Blocking:


On Windows Phone 8 platform when using "dojo/text" to load local resource, dojo will automatically choose normal XMLHttpRequest object(through new XMLHttpRequest()) to perform the AJAX call. While for some reason this seems not worked by default and we need change to Microsoft specific object instead(ActiveXObject("Microfost.XMLHTTP"))

I managed to make dojo/text works as expected on WP8 by replacing the XHR object to "Microfost.XMLHTTP", but I don't think this is a good workaround since it's not official fix and may bring unexpected behaviors.

Test sample code (with other devices it works):

require(dojo/text!something.html?, function(something){

something = contents of something.html


Note: this issue only happends within WP8 app(through Cordova for example), the "dojo/text" feature works normally if you use system embeded IE directly.

So within a hybrid app on Windows Phone 8, they still used ActiveX for XHR?

I'm not sure we'll have an easy way to text a fix for this.
