Can you edit overlay on the web page and publish changes using AT VEC?

Hi @gthakur8 

If the HTML element that you are trying to edit isn't available in DOM unless you perform some action, it'll not be possible to modify using VEC.

Could be done with help of trigger view tho it depends on you whether you want to implement trigger view.

Hey @gthakur8 

Yes you can edit the overlay on the web page via VEC, go to browse option in VEC and perform the actions that would make overlay visible to edit then return back to edit option and edit the overlay

Hi @gthakur8 ,
as @Gaureshk_Kodag has already explained, the DOM for this is not yet there at the beginning and is only generated at runtime. What can be done anyway - is that you check with JavaScript when the corresponding overlay is available and then the overlay is changed with JavaScript. To do this, the script can be inserted into the page via HTML code in the VEC - or alternatively via a form-based activity.

 

Hope this helps you.
