I have two combos on a page one uses the loader: $.ig.loader('igCombo', function() {$('#MainMenuSearchCombo').igCombo the other does not $(function () {$('#BasicCriteriaReceiptIdType').igCombo(

Do you know what triggers using the loader vs not? Only 1 combo uses the loader and the rest don't and I can't figure out why that one is. I need it not to so any direction to point me in would be helpful.

I figured out why this is happening. Is there a way to tell it to ignore the loader?

Let me rephrase the question. When its using the igLoader its not seeing our custom template engine that we configured like this:

$.ig.tmpl = function (tmpl, data) {

var template = Handlebars.compile(tmpl);

return template(data);


Do you have to do something different with the template engine when the loader is used?

Here is how you can tell the igLoader to load the Infragistics Templating engine resources:

<script type="text/javascript">
        scriptPath: "Scripts/ig/",
        resources: "igTemplating"

You can find more information about how to use the templating engine in the Infragistics Templating engine topic.

Yeah I tried that. We're overriding the template engine to use Handlebars and I need it to recognize that. For our other MVC combos that do not use the loader it works fine but for this one with the loader it's not seeing handlebars. Any ideas? I'm stumped.
