GlideModalConfirm on an onsubmit client script (not for service portal)

This script achieves the following:
- display a user friendly modal
- return false if cancel clicked, without saving the form
- return true if OK clicked, and save the form
- return true if the conditions for displaying the dialog message are false

it's a little more tricky with onsubmit due to asynchronous transactions not being possible! [See related post for onchange client script which is asynch friendly: dialog with callback]

var _canSubmit = false; var _dialog; function onSubmit() { if (_canSubmit) { return true; } /* */ //Check for Assignment Group if (g_form.getValue('assignment_group') == g_scratchpad.assignmentGroup && g_scratchpad.serviceOfferingABC == true) { var wNote = g_form.getValue('work_notes'); //If Work note updated if (wNote != '' && wNote != null) { //Alert user to remove any Sensitive data /*replace JS confirm with nicer dialog*/

g_form.setMandatory('work_notes', false); //--don't block form submission g_form.clearMessages(); _canSubmit = false; var sMsg = new GwtMessage().getMessage('inc.work_notes_sesitive_data'); var dialog = new GlideModal('glide_modal_confirm', true, 500); dialog.setTitle('test RDS'); dialog.setPreference('body', new GwtMessage().format(sMsg)); dialog.setPreference('focusTrap', true); dialog.setPreference('onPromptComplete', doComplete); dialog.setPreference('onPromptCancel', doCancel); dialog.setPreference('buttonLabelComplete', 'OK'); dialog.setPreference('buttonLabelCancel', 'Cancel'); dialog.render(); return false; //return confirm(new GwtMessage().getMessage('inc.hoth.work_notes_sesitive_data')); }else{ g_form.setMandatory('work_notes', true); return false;
} return true; } function doComplete() { canSubmit = true; g_form.submit(); g_form.setMandatory('work_notes', false); _canSubmit = true; var action = g_form.getActionName(); if(action == 'sysverb_update_and_stay'); else if(action=='sysverb_update_bottom') g_form.submit('sysverb_update_bottom'); else g_form.submit(); /*if (action) { gsftSubmit(action); } else { g_form.submit(); }*/ } function doCancel() { g_form.setMandatory('work_notes', true); if (_dialog) _dialog.destroy(); return false;

GlideRecord setValue

setValue(String name, Object value) Sets the specified field to the specified value. Normally a script would do a direct assignment, for example,  gr.category = value . However, if in a script the element name is a variable, then  gr.setValue(elementName, value)  can be used. When setting a value, ensure the data type of the field matches the data type of the value you enter. This method cannot be used on journal fields. If the value parameter is null, the record is not updated, and an error is not thrown!/api_doc?v=madrid&id=r_GlideRecord-setValue_String_Object
