how to call javaScript function in the form from Action:Tab buttion in workspace


Level 7


I want to trigger JavaScript function that I have written in form from Action: buttons in workspace user's account.

Is there any way that if i hit a button on action bar, it fire a javascript function.

Reason is: I dont want to place button on the form to perform any action on the form. I want to take control of the form from these buttons. Like submit, edit a form, etc, etc..

Please let me know if i couldnt explain it properly.

You probably will need to create a custom approval container.

If your button is submitting the form, I think you are supposed to be able to get the action in a preSubmit event. I have had issues with that though.

Sunil, you want to look at the "Customizing the LiveCycle® Workspace ES User Interface" document at  The workspace is a Flash component.  For ES4 there's an option to run the workspace in HTML5 which might be more productive long-term.
