Module will not render

  • Project Sponsor Module Developer

    Hey mates,

    I just wanted to share my experience on this, it took me ages to fix it and drove me nuts.

    Make sure you don't call updateDom in a function you're calling in the modules start method.

    Otherwise the core tries to update a module which is not even rendered and you will get a Black Screen.

    If you wan’t to perform a updateDom a.s.a.p, you could use the DOM_OBJECTS_CREATED notification:

    notificationReceived: function(notification, payload, sender) {
        if (notification === 'DOM_OBJECTS_CREATED') {

    BUT … keep in mind, the updateDom() method will be called during the dom creation. So it doesn’t make any sense to do so …
