    I'm having difficulty getting the exception from the OnDataBindingFailed event

    the event fires as expected, but the eventArgs object doesn't have the methods

         get_exception() - returns the deserialized response text.
         get_responseText() - returns the response text from the service.

    as described in this doc link


    The error that is showing on the console is

         Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource ... blah blah blah

    what am in missing?

    Hello Jason,

    The responses with Cross-Origin errors intentionally filter-out the headers and any other possibly sensitive information as you can see in this StackOverflow thread: Is it possible to trap CORS errors?

    Nevertheless, you can use the following conditions to differentiate the CORS from a normal error: 

    function OnDataBindingFailed(sender, args) {
        if (args.get_responseText) {
            var exception = args.get_exception();
            var responseText = args.get_responseText();
        } else {
            // most probably CORS error.

    Basically, the internal fail handler builds the arguments similar to: 

    // other code here
    if (response && response.responseText)
        var exception;
            exception = Sys.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer.deserialize(response.responseText);
        catch (e) { }
            exception: exception,
            responseText: response.responseText
    // other code here

    That is why when the cross-origin request fails, the arguments are not built this way and the methods are not available.

    To fix the error itself, basically, you should allow the cross-origin request to all or just some specific domains and addresses. How to allow it depends on the type of your service.
