  • Including 3rd Party Libraries

    I am trying to include a 3rd party library for use in some blank php apps in SC. So there is a x.php file that needs to be included and I went ahead to add this from Tools --> Libraries at the Public level.

    However I get this warning when I upload the file "This library contains codes out of the functions that will only be processed through the sc_include macro".

    When I try to use the library in a blank app by checking the box in the blank app at Programming --> Libraries, I keep getting undefined variables errors following the instantiation calls e.g.

    $color = new \uiwidgets\UI\DropDownList('color');

    There is no difference when I use require_once within onExecute viz.

    <?php require_once 'lib/uiwidgets/x.php'; ?> inside a multiline echo statement.

    Please does anyone have experience with this problem and suggestions on what I can do?

    Generally you can put your library in the _lib/prod/third/ dir but be aware that it can be deleted upon a complete deployment.

      When you get that message, as well as ticking the library in Programming | Libraries, you need to add the following in the onApplicationInit event:


      (I believe you shouldn't then need to do rr's suggestion if you do this - although a valid way around it. Also means you do not need to worry about re-deployment removing your lib)
