Re: Unable to instantiate IMS.API

Hi Satish,

You need to include the definition of the IMS API client, and the supporting library - in the case of Third Light's published Javascript clients, this would be either Prototype or JQuery. (See the "Invoking the client" section of the documentation page at https://www.thirdlight.com/docs/display … ipt+Client).

Re: Unable to instantiate IMS.API

Thanks Dominic,

I have tried the javascript client as mentioned in your previous reply, but I am not able to login through the script -

myIMSClient.Login("myid", "mypassword");

after the above statement, javascript throws an error- the error is as below

-----------

ims-api-1.1.js (line 613)

TypeError: document.getElementsByTagName(...)[0] is undefined
document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0].appendChild(scriptTag);}

-------------

Please find the complete script- I am trying to login and adding note to the image file whose reference is 26490552737. Please advise where things going wrong.

Thanks
Satish
