Adding a Button that Runs a JavaScript

From SmartWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

If you wish to have a button on the page that runs a custom Browser Script use the following technique:

1) Create a Display Only - Text or System Object or Read Only – System Variables Custom Field. In the Text/Link: section include the following:

<input type="button" class=Button value="Button Label" onClick='runThisScript()'/>


  • Button Label is the label you wish to have on the button
  • runThisScript() is the function you have defined separately in a Browser Script (step 2).

2) Create a Browser Script Custom Field that includes the JavaScript function you wish to run when the button is clicked:

function runThisScript()
// enter whatever the script should do here
