init init

JavaScript API reference for eCatalog Viewer.


Starts the initialization of the eCatalog Viewer. By this time, the container DOM element must be created so that the viewer code can find it by its ID.

If the container element is not a part of the web page layout yet—for example, it may be hidden using display:none style assigned to it—the viewer suspends its initialization process. It does so until the moment when the web page brings the container element back to the layout. When this event happens, the viewer load automatically resumes.

Only call this method once during the viewer life cycle; subsequent calls are ignored.
