Custom Update Button

Recommended Posts


I need help please.

I wish to have a custom button displayed on a update page if a checkbox is blank.

Also, need to have the default update button hidden and not accessible.

Finally I would like the custom button to check the checkbox and submit the update to the record

Is this possible with JavaScript?

Hi Mark!

Here is code snippet I wrote that might facilitate such a scenario.

const mainUpdateButton = document.querySelector('.cbUpdateButton');
mainUpdateButton.style.display = 'none';

mainUpdateButton.insertAdjacentHTML('beforebegin', `<div class="cbUpdateButtonContainer"><input id="newUpdateButton" value="Update" class="cbUpdateButton"></div>`);
document.querySelector('#newUpdateButton').addEventListener('click', _=> {
document.querySelector('[type="checkbox"]').checked = true;
    mainUpdateButton.dispatchEvent(new Event('click', { 'bubbles': true }))
