Hi,

I have a snippet where I will have to handle exceptions :

function(result, event){
                if (event.status) 
                {
                    //Do your operations
                } 
                else if (event.type === 'exception') 
                {
                    
                        alert(event.message + event.where);
                } 
                else 
                {
                    alert(event.message);
                }
}


instead of alert to User , how to display nice popup kind of error message in skuid (or jQuery) ?

Hello KVin -

There are a couple of options I can think of

1) Display a skuid popup using the  skuid.utils.createPopupFromPopupXML (see https://community.skuid.com/skuid/topics/trigger_popup_from_javascript?topic-reply-list%5Bsettings%5... for more info).

2) Create a jQuery UI Dialog within your snippet (see https://community.skuid.com/skuid/topics/are-you-sure-action for more info).

Hope this helps!
