[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from fennie liang

Hello Fennie,

I’ve been looking at the code for the NCBO Ontology Tree Widget [1] today and I’m not able to reproduce the mixed content errors you reported.  The code for this widget does check for protocols and uses either http or https appropriately, as far as I can tell.

I created a public JSFiddle that demonstrates how to use the widget [2].  All JSFiddles are served over HTTPS.  Below is a screenshot of interacting with the tree with the developer console open.  I configured the tree to use the ICD10 ontology, searched for the diabetes mellitus class, selected and expanded nodes - all without mixed content errors.

I also tried debugging your code using the browser’s developer tools, but the code errors out before I can reproduce any mixed content errors.  This is the console output from your code (in Chrome):

Uncaught TypeError: newTree.changeOntology is not a function
    at HTMLHeadingElement.<anonymous> ((index):134)
    at HTMLHeadingElement.handle (jquery.js:5460)
    at HTMLHeadingElement.dispatch (jquery.js:5095)
    at HTMLHeadingElement.elemData.handle (jquery.js:4766)

If you could get your code to work without exceptions, I could perhaps assist further.

Kind regards,

I used Bioportal tree widget in my application see
on the website you can 1. enter diabetes mellitus then click on Read CTV2, Read V3 (RCD) and ICD10, then click on search button. Wait until the spinner finish to have a set of results shown. Then click on the first one it should have a subtree shown underneath the title (here is the tree widget's part) then click on the + icon to open the tree. However, because the returned data is using "http:" link, therefore the tree won't open as browsers see the returned data as from an insecure site. Would you or can I change the returned data as a "https:" link to solve this problem.
