SugarCRM: Adding Javascript validation on form submit

Assume your module name as ‘ABC_XXX’.

Create the file or edit the existing file
/custom/modules/ABC_XXX/metadata/editviewdefs.php
and include the code below

$module_name = 'ABC_XXX';
$viewdefs [$module_name] =
array (
  'EditView' =>
  array (
    'templateMeta' =>
    array (
      'form' =>
      array(
         'buttons' =>
        array (
         0 =>
          array(
           'customCode' =>
            '<input title="Save [Alt+S]" accessKey="S" onclick="this.form.action.value=\'Save\'; return check_custom_data();" type="submit" name="button" value="'.$GLOBALS['app_strings']['LBL_SAVE_BUTTON_LABEL'].'">',
          ),
         1 =>
          array(
           'customCode' =>
            '<input title="Cancel [Alt+X]" accessKey="X" onclick="this.form.action.value=\'index\'; this.form.module.value=\''.$module_name.'\'; this.form.record.value=\'\';" type="submit" name="button" value="'.$GLOBALS['app_strings']['LBL_CANCEL_BUTTON_LABEL'].'">'
          )
        )
      ),
      'includes'=> array(
  array('file'=>'custom/modules/ABC_XXX/customJavascript.js'),
      ),
    ),
);

Create a javascript file at
custom/modules/ABC_XXX/ named customJavascript.js
and include the code below

function check_custom_data()
{
    alert('here');
    if (condition) {
        return false;
    }
    return check_form('EditView');
}

    1. I want to add javascript on save button and tried as explained in this blog.

      quickcreatedefs.php

      ‘customCode’ =>
      ”,
      …….
      ‘file’ => ‘modules/test_test/change.php’,

      but doesn’t work.

      The only way I managed to get him to go was to change the file /include/Smarty/plugins/function.sugar_button.php like that:

      case “SUBPANELSAVE”:
      $view = $view == ‘QuickCreate’ ? “form_SubpanelQuickCreate_{$module}” : $view;
      return ‘{if $bean->aclAccess(“save”)}{/if} ‘;

      That would be a solution but I think this not is customizing upgrade safe and for each module must change the structure.

    3. The file should be a JS file. include that file on the custom folder. the function you calling should be a JS function.
      Example
      includes’=> array(
      array(‘file’=>’custom/modules/ABC_XXX/customJavascript.js’),
      ),
