Close form from a java script widget

Is it possible to close the form the java script widget is placed in, via a microflow triggered from within the java script widget? The normal close form does not work. I am struggling with the GridView widget but have in-counted this problem with other java script widgets. I could use a normal datagrid but i want to keep all my forms consistent.

Yes, it is possible to handle close form instructions in your widget. See this answer.


This might be late but hopefully this will help somone in the future :

To make gridview close a page after executing a mf action:

//In Gridview.js add the following line in the startup function around line 1118: this.offerInterface("close");

//Then add the follwoing function: close : function() { this.disposeContent(); },

//There is also a bug in the mf function in the commons.js file which do not pass the context: //on line +-377 change the following line: mf(mfname, dataitem, cb);

//to: mf(mfname, dataitem, cb, context);

Hope this helps!


Close forms triggered from microflows called by custom widgets do not work by default. Please submit a support ticket at if you need this.
