Determining if a Page is in Add or Edit Mode in Creatio (formerly bpm’online)

You’ll often want to know in your page code if the page is in add mode or edit mode. This is useful to perform only certain action in cases where the record is being added vs edited.

To know if the page is in add mode, you’ll also likely want to check if the page is in copy mode. Bpm’online has the ability for a user to copy a record to make a new one. This is also likely something you’d want to consider as “add” mode in many cases.

Checking if the Page is in Add Mode

// add mode
if (this.isAddMode()) {
    // do something

// OR to also include if is in copy mode

if (this.isAddMode() || this.isCopyMode()) {
    // do something

Checking if the Page is in Edit Mode

if (this.isEditMode()) {
    // do something
