      I come across scenario where i need to get ID to saved item from new list when spjs.dffs.triggerSave() event fire.

      I need item id so i can call some rest api calls in to lists, how can it possible to call function after form save with item ID?

      Hi,
      spjs.dffs.triggerSave() only triggers the built in save function in SharePoint (by clicking the save button) and won’t return anything so if this is in NewForm you cannot actually get the id unless you save the NewForm entirely programmatically.

      You can do it instead by redirecting to DispForm after saving as shown below.

      Add this to your NewForm Custom JS:

      function dffs_PreSaveAction() {
          spjs.dffs.redirect(location.pathname.substring(0, location.pathname.lastIndexOf("/")) + "/DispForm.aspx?DFFSID=" + spjs.dffs.data._DFFSID + "&RedirFromNewForm=1", false);
          return true;
      }

      Now add this to your DispForm Custom JS:

      if(GetUrlKeyValue("RedirFromNewForm") === "1"){
          // From NewForm - do your magic here
          var itemId = spjs.dffs.data.thisItemID;
          alert("Item id: " + itemId);
      }

      Please note that for this to work you must add a single line of text field to your form with the internal name “_DFFSID”.

      You can use this snippet to trigger a click on the cancel button:

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