Getting error BABYLON.GUI.AdvancedDynamicTexture is undefined


Recommended Posts


I was trying the http://playground.babylonjs.com/#E0WY4U#, demo and clicked the 'zip' button to save the source files.

I then tried to hit the saved pages using local webserver, but I was getting exception (see the attached file). 

The generated index.html (also attached here) has the following external references:

   <title>Babylon.js sample code</title>
        <!-- Babylon.js -->
        <script src="https://www.babylonjs.com/hand.minified-1.2.js"></script>
        <script src="https://preview.babylonjs.com/gui/babylon.gui.min.js"></script>
        <script src="https://preview.babylonjs.com/cannon.js"></script>
        <script src="https://preview.babylonjs.com/oimo.js"></script>
        <script src="https://preview.babylonjs.com/babylon.js"></script>

Looks like some GUI type is not defined, I guess the included gui.js is not correct ?

Please help. Thanks.

Hi @HoloLite 

Babylon GUI is an extention and must be included After the babylon.js file.
this is a bug in the sample download, a fix is on the way but for now just move babylon.js line above babylon.gui.js like shown below :) 

  <script src="https://www.babylonjs.com/hand.minified-1.2.js"></script>
+ <script src="https://preview.babylonjs.com/babylon.js"></script>
  <script src="https://preview.babylonjs.com/gui/babylon.gui.min.js"></script>
  <script src="https://preview.babylonjs.com/cannon.js"></script>
  <script src="https://preview.babylonjs.com/oimo.js"></script>
- <script src="https://preview.babylonjs.com/babylon.js"></script>

404 means that the meshes aren't being loaded, but they are at that URL.  My guess is that it is CORS related or file:// policy.  You can get those meshes from github and put on your server:

edit: WindowsMotionController.MODEL_BASE_URL So, at least when loading file://, I think you could do:

BABYLON.WindowsMotionController.MODEL_BASE_URL = '/myfolder/'

@brianzinn thanks for the feedback.

I did try your suggestion. I copied the assets dir (including the meshes dir) onto my local web server. 

In my local web server's root directory, the file 'assets\meshes\controllers\microsoft\045E-065B\right.glb' or left glb actually exists.

Then I set:  

BABYLON.WindowsMotionController.MODEL_BASE_URL = "/assets/meshes/controllers/microsoft/";

But I am still getting the 404 error, even though the actual path to the .glb file actually exists. Any idea what went wrong ?

This is because the Windows MR controllers are using glTF. It's also an extension you have to reference. I thought we had a warning message but apparently we didn't ;) cc @Deltakosh

In conclusion, to make my sample works on your machine you need :

- to download or reference our GUI extension library as it's not in the core of Babylon.js 

- to download or reference our glTF loader extension
