I would like to be able to only load a JavaScript file when the current view is a ComponentView.

So something in the lines of:

<cfg:group name ="groupname" applyTo="ComponentView">
    <cfg:file type="script">/javascriptfile.js</cfg:file>

Is there something available like this?

I know that you can do this within JavaScript ($display.getView()getId() === "ComponentView") but then the file is already loaded.

You need to extend associated View group. In case of ComponentView it is Tridion.Web.UI.Editors.CME.Views.Component

See how to make groupextensions from Eric answer in similar post:

  • Thanks! I had already looked into extensiongroups but I didn't add the resourceextensions. It is working now. Commented Aug 1, 2014 at 10:06
