A bit over the top perhaps, but this is a mendix training creating a widget doing just that: and



Hey Krishnan,

No need to use JQuery or any code for this:

  • create the input field, and make sure it is linked to an attribute, and that the input field is contained in a dataview that has an actual object (e.g. a DS)
  • create a button underneath the field and
    • Add a nanoflow action. In the Nanoflow, set the content of the attribute, and that's it.
    • Obviously make sure all access rights are set.

Really no need to use JQuery or JavaScript.

Best regards,
