Here is how I am enqueueing the script (this is inside a class):

add_action( 'admin_enqueue_scripts', array( $this, 'add_admin_scripts'), true);

public function add_admin_scripts(){
    $parentBase = get_current_screen();
    if($parentBase->id == 'toplevel_page_calc-settings'){
            wp_enqueue_style( 'l7w-admin-js', $this->pluginUrl . 'assets/js/admin.min.js');

Here is the simple script:


The js is showing and is loaded on the settings page but the alert() and the console.log() are not executed.

Why am I not seeing the alert or the console.log()?

  • You should see an error in your console related to the $, WordPress' jQuery object reference is jQuery, not $. – Milo Sep 8 '17 at 20:20

    oh, you're using wp_enqueue_style instead of wp_enqueue_script. – Milo Sep 8 '17 at 20:25

Got it:

wp_enqueue_style( 'l7w-admin-js', $this->pluginUrl . 'assets/js/admin.min.js');

wp_enqueue_script( 'l7w-admin-js', $this->pluginUrl . 'assets/js/admin.min.js');
