      Hello,

      I might be missing something simple here, but in SharePoint 2010 and DFFS 4.358, I’m trying to add a button at the bottom of the form that will save the SharePoint item, and will also run a custom function to set a couple field values. I have this code below, which I know to insert into a header, but what is the dffs or js syntax to do a save in SharePoint?

      <button type=”button” onclick=”spjs.dffs.triggerRule([‘Append’]);”>Submit and Save</button>

      Hi,
      The best way to save the form is by clicking the save item button:

      $("input[id$='SaveItem']:first").trigger("click");

      You could also use a rule in DFFS with trigger “The form is saved” to trigger your custom function before save.

      in case the form was not save because of some required fields how to reset these fields values?

      for example checkbox, was set to true when the button is clicked if the form is not save the checkbox should be set to false.

      I’m not sure I follow – if the form is not saved the checkbox value is not saved either… – can you explain?

      no what i am saying is that if the form is not saved because of some required fields should be filled and the submit button called a function to set some fields values we should reset these fields because the form is not saved.
      anyway i found a way to do that.

      
      
      function checkRequired() {
          $('.dffs-formvalidation').each(function(){
              if( $(this).val() == "" ){
                setFieldValue('RequesterSubmit','false');
              console.log("Test PAssed")
                return false;
              }
          });
      }

      OK, you might also use the “The form is saved” trigger as it will only be run if all required fields are filled.

      yes, but this option will not help me in my case because i have 2 buttons Submit and Save as Draft, and ofcourse the submit button is triggering the main sharepoint save button so if i want to update the request submitted field i have to do that by custom js and not When the form is saved rule.
      but what i faced here that if i am changing the Request Submit field value to false if the form is not saved i am loosing the functionality of a rule that’s checking the required fields when the Request Submit is true.

      OK, I’m glad you found a workaround.
