Interactive view cannot be openend | Component

today, after installing some updates of KNIME Extensions, I received the following error message when starting a component with a dashboard:

2023-10-23 11_33_48-KNIME Analytics Platform

KNIME Version

I suspect the cause is one of the updates.

Thanks in advance for your help

thanks for posting.
Do I understand correctly, that before this update you could open an interactive view of the component, and there were no changes to the WF in between?

Hello @darspir ,

that is correct!



Can you also share the logs associated with the error, you can see the logs from View → KNIME log.
Also, from the preferences can you verify that the browser being used to open the views has been set to “Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF)” (as shown below)?




Hello @aliasghar_marvi ,

the following are the messages from the knime.log:

My JavaScriptView settings with which it has always worked so far:

When I switch to Chromium Embedded Framework, the dashboard is displayed again, but I can no longer save it as an HTML file with a right click.


Does anyone have an idea how to solve the problem?

what is inside of the component? Which of components nodes is causing the error?

The main problem is that the dashboard is no longer generated with my settings. Since I want to save the dashboard as an HTMl file, I have to keep it that way.

All nodes in the component without errors!

ERROR OpenSubnodeWebViewAction The interactive view for node ‘Component für Dashboard 4:175’ has thrown a ‘NoSuchMethodError’. That is most likely an implementation error.
Execute and open view


@wsturmzfknime Did my information help you?

@USCHUKN1ME : your issue is tricky and difficult to investigate without being able to reproduce. So for me more questions than answers:
What happens if you delete all the subnodes in the component and lets say, just leave a single node and try to execute the component node?
I still assume that the issue is caused by something inside of the component.
What happens if you copy the sub nodes of the component into a new component node?
Have you tried to export the whole workflow and reimport?
Have you tried to run the workflow in a new installation of KNIME

HI @wsturmzfknime ,

I think the workflow is fine so far. After all, everything worked before the update.
Some or possibly especially the KNIME extension “KNIME Bundled Chromium Browser (legacy)” seems to be faulty.

I suspect that it is due to the JAVA Script Views:

( ) Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) Browser
(x) Bundled Chromium Browser (version 113)

The setting with “Bundled Ch…” worked before the updates, now there is the error message and with “Chromium Embedded …” the dashboard is created, but can no longer be saved as an HTML file as written.

A similar problem is described here

I have reinstalled KNIME and the extension in question.

But it didn’t help.
