CRM 2013 - OnSave code not cancelling the save RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a function which runs OnSave of a form, if certain criteria are met it will cancel the Save by using this command, this command does run and the alert returns 'true' but the record still saves.

    This is only set to run when the getSaveMode is 5, so when I hit Deactivate it runs the code, alerts me as per below but still deactivates the record. How do you stop it deactivating the record? the code below doesn't seem to work.


                alert("default prevented = " + prmContext.getEventArgs().isDefaultPrevented());

  • Hi Pete,
    just a suggestion, if you plan to control when a record can be activated/deactivated, I suggest to use a plugin, is a better solution.

  • Hi Guido,

    But this should be possible in jscript according to the sdk. I don't have any other functions onSave so any ideas why it doesn't work?

  • use:-


    The pass execution context as first parameter checkbox is very important to this process. Without it, it will not work.

  • Hi

    Could it be CRM 2013 feature thats deactivating the record. Try to disable it.

  • Hi Pete - seems like this might be a bug.

    I tried the follow code on a form save (passing the execution object) and every time the record still deactivated. This did work in CRM 2011.

    function OnSave(execObj) {
        if (execObj.getEventArgs().getSaveMode() === "5" || execObj.getEventArgs().getSaveMode() === 5) {

    I submitted to Connect here: https://connect.microsoft.com/dynamicssuggestions/feedback/details/816471/mvp-bug-cannot-cancel-form-save-deactivate-with-javascript
