    Hi I am new on DNN. I have a api called. https://www.abc.com/getdata/1 and Inside of desktopmodule I have a simple ascx written asp.net and I want to create jquery ajax to call the API - https://www.abc.com/getdata/1

    What do I need to do making it works in a simple DNN module?

    Below is the js codes that I currently use for another HTML project. I hope I can copy over to DNN module

    <script type="text/javascript">
        function GetProductList() {
            var tr='';
            var model = { 'Manufacturer_ID': 852 };
                type: "POST",
                url: "https://www.whatever.com/api/Product//ProductList?type=json",
                dataType: "json",
                contentType: "application/json;charset=utf-8",
                data: JSON.stringify(model),
                success: function (data) {
                    $.each(data, function (index) {
                        tr = tr + data[index].Product_ID + ":" +  data[index].ProductName + '\n';
                error: function (error) {
                    alert("Error " + error);

      Hi Ricky,

      If your API (e.g. your .ashx file) is located within your module you need to target the full path, e.g. if your module is called MyModule the path would be https://www.abc.com/DesktopModules/MyModule/MyApiHandler.ashx - created dynamically so the module will work in more than one site ;-)

      If the API you are calling is external the current code seems to be ok, although you may want to include cache: false in the properties - and perhaps a boolean in the result to indicate success or serverside error.
