Client-side rendering or JSLink is a new concept in SharePoint 2013.  In my earlier article SharePoint2013: JSLink (Client Side Rendering) explained about Client-side rendering or JSLink.

In this article, we are going to use JSLink > OnPreRender Event. With the help of this event, we can perform an action before rendering the view. OnPreRender accepts either a function or an array of them. All provided functions will be executed whenever an event is fired.

We first need to write the definition of the function which needs to be called:

/*
This function has been used to add reference of JQuery framework, if not present
*/
JSLinkSecurity.Functions.AddJQuery = function (ctx) {
    absoluteSiteUrl = _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl;
 
    var siteUrl = window.location.protocol + "//" + window.location.host + "/"; //=>
    // check if jQuery is available, otherwise reload it
    if (!window.jQuery) {
        var jq = document.createElement('script'); jq.type = 'text/javascript';
        jq.src = siteUrl + JQuery_URL;
        document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(jq);
    }
}
 
/*
This function has been called from the FIELDS and
>using AddJQuery function to add Jquery reference
*/
JSLinkSecurity.Functions.InitiateScopeList = function () {
    //Add jqery and links
    JSLinkSecurity.Functions.AddJQuery(ctx);
}

In the above functions, we are trying to, dynamically add a reference to jQuery in JSLink (Client Side Rendering) on SharePoint Page. Once List View page loaded, you will be able to see the reference to jQuery File.

JSLinkSecurity.Functions.AddJQuery: This function receives the current context of the page and will add the reference of jQuery file under the head section of the page.
JSLinkSecurity.Functions.InitiateScopeList: This function would be called from OnPreRender event and using JSLinkSecurity.Functions.AddJQuery function to, dynamically add reference of jQuery on SharePoint page.

After that, we need to call the custom function on JSLink > OnPreRender Event:

/*
This function OnPreRender event fires before the DOM is loaded.
>using InitiateScopeList function
*/
JSLinkSecurity.OnPreRender = JSLinkSecurity.Functions.InitiateScopeList;

Note: One thing, needs to be remembered that before calling the function JSLinkSecurity.Functions.InitiateScopeList,  we need to define it, otherwise, it will not work in JSLink. It means if we will add a definition of JSLinkSecurity.Functions.InitiateScopeList/JSLinkSecurity.Functions.AddJQuery after the above statement then your function would not be called during page load.

In the above code block, we already implemented the logic to display JSLink changes in Minimum Download Strategy (MDS) feature enabled site. By default MDS is enabled in SharePoint 2013 Team sites. For more detail check article  SharePoint2013: JSLink (Client Side Rendering) .
