Opening a Record for Edit in a Specific Page in Creatio Freedom UI

In a previous article I outlined how to open a page via code in a Freedom UI page. I also outlined how to open a record’s edit page via code in a Freedom UI page. However, it’s possible you have many different pages for the same entity. What if you want to open a record to edit in a specific Freedom UI page? This article will show how to specify the specific page you want to use when opening a record to edit.

In the scenario for this article, I have a simple page (actually a mini page dialog) where I can select the case status. I am going to open a case to edit in this specific page so the status is bound and the case status can be updated in this page. My page looks as follows:

Note, this is a page where Case is the data source. It’s another page bound to the case entity. When I open the case to edit for the sample in this article, I want to use this simple page.

To open a specific page, we’ll use a crt.OpenPageRequest. We’ll include the schemaName for the page we want to use, but will also include some details to initialize the page model in edit mode for a specific record. ┬áThe code will look as follows:

request.$context.executeRequest({
    type: "crt.OpenPageRequest",
    $context: request.$context,
    schemaName: "UsrCaseStatus_ModalPage",
	modelInitConfigs: [
		{
			action: "edit",
			recordId: caseId
		}
	]
});

The end result is that the case will open for edit using the specific page we’ve specified in the request.
