Got it! (at least one way)

Hi Matt, I'm curious how you got this working. I've tried replacing the #MyPageInclude with both the name of the page that is included and the unique ID of the page include component in the JS snippet. I'm trying to run the snippet as an action from a button in a wizard. I'm getting the error:
TypeError: skuid.$(...).data(...) is undefined

Any pointers?

Also for context, I'm working on resolving an issue of a page include at the end of a wizard (which should present all the data entered in the wizard) is not refreshing after data is changed in the wizard (despite it being saved to the models successfully). I figure I have to force a refresh of the page include.

How about setting your wizard to not load all the pages initially... you can just have them load as you get to the page. In which case, your page include at the end will only render after eveything else, and should have your data.

The script above should still work. You have to replace "MyPageInclude" with the unique id of your page include component... you need to keep the #.

Does that help?

Thanks for getting back on this thread. I verified I have the component ID in there (thanks for the note about the "#"...I had dropped that).

I'm also trying what skuid lists in the pop up help on the lazy load option for a page - skuid.component.getById('MyPageIncludeComponent').refresh()
(Note: In case the skuid guys are follwing, theinline documentation for page include lazy load seems to reference "load" which is not documented on skuid.component, so I assume it should be "refresh" instead)

One of the issues I'm having is that it isn't just the initial load of the page include component, but subsequent loads that need to refresh during the same session for the user. The use case is the final page of anapplication (wizard) where the final page is a page include of the full application print out (eg a review step for user before submitting). So they see the review and then go back and edit data in the models (which are saved by the wizard) but when they get back to the review page, it is not reflecting the updates made and already saved.

I noticed that the "Include" visualforce page has changed over the course of some Skuid upgrades so I'm going to try updating the local version.I'll also experiment with adding in cache="false" to that local copy.

We are using Page Includes to compose complex pages and performance is proving to be an issue... included sections often need around five seconds to render.

To work around this we attempted to preemptively load a number of Includes using Matt's snippet above. This causes the browser become unresponsive while the page includes are processing (again, for around five seconds).

Is there a way to cause the page include component to process without blocking the main page... i.e. so that while the page include is displaying the "Loading..." message the remainder of the page that isn't affected by the page include remains responsive?

Did Dan's point above get a response at any point? I'm having the same issue and would love a way to force certain page includes to load whilst allowing the remainder of the page to stay responsible.

+ 1 for Dan's and Kathryn's idea. Would love for page includes to load in the background without freezing the screen

Hi team,

We are getting page include object, changing pagename and querystring properties the include object and loading the page include after changing page for the page include.

var $ = skuid.$;
 // original page of the include
var include = $('#main-include');
var includeObj ='object'); //includeObj.pagename is originally 'shared_task_list';
// changing the page include page with task_basics_view;
includeObj.pagename = 'task_basics_view'; 
includeObj.objecttype = '';
includeObj.querystring = '';

This is all working fine. However, with recent skuid version (11.2.8) model are not being cleared from previous page; i.e. even after switching page from shared_task_list to task_basics_view and loading the include, we can access model of shared_task_list from the console. Any clue?

Thank you.
