Directions widget "getDirections()" method does not route

When my map loads I want to have the route automatically calculated and displayed without clicking the "Get Directions" button.

on https://developers.arcgis.com/javascript/jsapi/directions-amd.html#getdirections is lists the method getDirections() that says will automatically route and display the inputs.
directions = new Directions({                     map: map,                     stops: ["Knoxville ", "Chattanouga"], },"directionsDiv"); directions.startup(); directions.getDirections();


I load the inputs using "stops" parameter and call getDirections() but it does not display or route anything and instead gives me "Enter an origin and a destination." despite both inputs being correctly filled. If I click the button with the same inputs it will give me the correct route.
