[javascript] Error in Chrome only: XMLHttpRequest cannot load file URL No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource

I am following a book example hence the code is very simple.

This is the code:

           { s:search_query },
           write_results_to_page, "html");

And the code is ajax_search_results.php has:

<div id="ajax_search_results">
 <li><a href="#">First result</a></li>
 <li><a href="#">Second result</a></li>
 <li><a href="#">Third result</a></li>
 <li><a href="#">More...</a></li>

This works as expected in the Firefox. But in Chrome, I can see the error following message in the JS console:

XMLHttpRequest cannot load 
No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource.
Origin 'null' is therefore not allowed access.

Can you please help identify the problem?

The answer is

If your problem is like the following while using Google Chrome:

[XMLHttpRequest cannot load file. Received an invalid response. Origin 'null' is therefore not allowed access.]

Then create a batch file by following these steps:

Open notepad in Desktop.

  1. Just copy and paste the followings in your currently opened notepad file:

start "chrome" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --allow-file-access-from-files exit

  1. Note: In the previous line, Replace the full absolute address with your location of chrome installation. [To find it...Right click your short cut of chrome.exe link or icon and Click on Properties and copy-paste the target link][Remember : start to files in one line, & exit in another line by pressing enter]
  2. Save the file as fileName.bat [Very important: .bat]
  3. If you want to change the file later then right-click on the .bat file and click on edit. After modifying, save the file.

This will do what? It will open Chrome.exe with file access. Now, from any location in your computer, browse your html files with Google Chrome. I hope this will solve the XMLHttpRequest problem.

Keep in mind : Just use the shortcut bat file to open Chrome when you require it. Tell me if it solves your problem. I had a similar problem and I solved it in this way. Thanks.
