Lightswitch html screen render function? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys!

    Are there any after render event for Screen?

    What I am trying to do is I want to find "titles-bar" div for special screen.

    I was trying to use screen.details._pageId in created event, but it seems that controls are not created by the time this function executed.

    I just want to add some extra html for header control just for some screens.

    Thanks

    Nick

  • Hi Nick,

     If you need to augment or otherwise modify DOM elements created by LightSwitch, use the postRender event. The postRender event is commonly used to add a CSS class or DOM attribute to existing DOM elements: for example, you may want to add a jQuery Mobile class to a DOM element created by LightSwitch. We’ll also use the postRender event to change the screen header dynamically later in this article.

    You may check the blog below for details.
