      Hello,

      n

      Can you please let me know your SP and QA versions?

      n

      Do you get any errors (js, exceptions) when you use the custom save button? If there is a js error then you can use teh Developer tools (in IE) to get more info about it. If there is an exception please ask for the ULS log file and search for the related errors.

      n

      You ask if there is a way to pass the newly created item to the next page, yes it is, use the Set Session Name property of the qListForm to store the newly created item after it gets saved. See the documentation for more details.

      SharePoint Version: 14.0.0.6117
      QuickApps Version: 6.1(Build 2013.4.4)

      There are no js errors that pop up at all.

      I have been reading the documentation, I just tend to learn via example.

      Hello everyone, I’m having some issues getting my custom action button to behave like I want it.

      n

      My end goal is to get a custom action button that does the following:

      n

      Dialogue opened and user enters in dataUser clicks the custom action buttonThe item gets savedA new page is opened in a dialogueThat page is closed once it’s done loading (no user intervention needed)Original dialogue is closedOriginal source refreshed

      n

      My custom action button right now is:

      n

      <CustomActions> <Toolbar> <ActionItem ID=”Link PID to RID” Text=”Save (Custom)”> <Action Name=”Save” Type=”Save” OpenURL=”CurrentWindow” /> <Action Name=”Link PID” Type=”GoToURL” URL=”LinkPID.aspx” OpenURL=”Dialog”> <Parameter Name=”sID” Source=”HttpRequest” SourceName=”sID” /> <Parameter Name=”RID” Source=”HttpRequest” SourceName=”RID” /> </Action> </ActionItem> </Toolbar></CustomActions>

      n

      The two values sID and RID come from the originating page and when the user saves the new item there will be two new values psID and PID that need to be passed to the LinkPID.aspx page.  There didn’t seem to be an elegant way to pass the newly created items SharePoint ID to the next page.

      n

      I didn’t see anywhere in the documentation that would prohibit me from Saving -> Opening a new window and I don’t have any errors in my jscript.  I don’t have access to the actual server so I’m unable to see any log files.

      n

      What am I doing wrong with this custom action button?  And is there a way that I can pass the newly created item to the next page?

      n

      Thanks.

      Just a follow up after I've played with the session aspect.

      n

      I found this kb article:

      n

      https://support.software.dell.com/quick-apps-for-sharepoint/kb/36377

      n

      It says it applied to QuickApps 3.5/3.5.1, I'm assuming it also applies to higher versions?

      n

      If so what would the work around be other than using a text field?
