I'm creating some custom ribbon buttons for the experience editor in version 10.1. I have set them up using a combination of the below guides...




So far so good, the buttons are visible and the click event is triggered in the below using the below code:

define(["sitecore", "/-/speak/v1/ExperienceEditor/ExperienceEditor.js",
, "/-/speak/v1/ExperienceEditor/ExperienceEditorProxy.js"],
function (Sitecore, ExperienceEditor, ExperienceEditorContext, ExperienceEditorProxy) {

    console.log("FieldEditorCommand.js loaded...");

    Sitecore.Commands.LaunchFieldEditor =
        canExecute: function (context) {
            return true;
        execute: function (context) {

            try {


                const rawString = context.button.attributes.name;

                if (rawString.length) {

                    const fieldsString = rawString.replace("-", "|");
                    const itemId = context.currentContext.itemId.replace("%7b", "{").replace("%7d", "}")

                    ExperienceEditorProxy._pe().postRequest('webedit:fieldeditor(command = ' + itemId + ', fields = ' + fieldsString + ', id = ' + itemId + ')', null, false)

            catch (err) {
                console.log("FieldEditorCommandError", err);

My issue is when executing the post back to Sitecore using ExperienceEditorProxy._pe().postRequest();, I get the following error:

Failed to call scGetFrameValue in IFrame tag. This typically happens due to a Permission Denied exception in IE9 caused by an intricate issue with Popup and ShowModalDialog calls. Blocked a frame with origin "https://cm.ljmu.localhost" from accessing a cross-origin frame.

The origin is always cm.ljmu.localhost so that's not the problem. I also read that it could be a conflict with Jquery however removing jquery from experience editor pages does not resolve the issue.

  • Could you please confirm if the error msg is from the browser dev tools ->console window

  • Yes it's the browser reporting it in the console (blue), not an error log (red) @AbhayDhar

  • I am not too familiar with SPEAK but it looks like you have a error with the CSP set on your Sitecore instance or you are returning X-FRAME-OPTIONS to DENY in http response headers
