    Using Javascript to insert include Link to this post


    I'm have an issue where I want to use the <% include somepage.ss %> within a Javascript if else statement but its not working.

    For example:

    <script type="text/javascript">

              <% include LoggedIn %>
          }else if(loggedin==false){
    <% include LoggedIn %>


    or something similar using document.write. Any ideas?

    I think you will have to use something like ajax to get the rendered template rather than simply including it as it won't parse the file at all. You could do something like create a function on a controller which returns the renderWith() then get that via ajax

    // in Page_Controller

    function LoggedInMenu() {
    return $this->renderWith('LoggedInMenu');

    If you're using jQuery then you can use the .get() function to call that method and append it to the template

    // new javascript file...

    (function() {
    $(document).ready(function() {

    $.get('home/LoggedInMenu', function(data) {
    alert('Load was performed.');

    Hope thats enough to get you started!
