I have a lightning component loaded in to a visual force page; VF page is called via an action.

Once I try to load this action from a mobile device/simulator I could see a standard save and cancel buttons.

How could I access these save/cancel buttons? How if I want to execute a js/Apex method call on click on the "save" button?

Thanks in advance

Please see the attached screenshots for further info;

    Sort of looks like they have been pushed off the bottom...is that what has happened? If so, you should be able to still see them in the DOM browser I suspect. – pchittum Dec 2 '15 at 10:21
  • @Hasantha I don't think you would be able to run your script on save/cancel which were added by default on update/create quick action. If you want to do that you could go for lightning component in quick action and action with visualforce page where you will have complete control what you want to write on save and cancel. Yes it will involve complete custom coding. – Kiran Machhewar Aug 1 '17 at 23:56

I Hope below code would help you in overcoming your issue.

VisualForce Page

<apex:page controller="tes_button">    
<apex:includeScript value="/lightning/lightning.out.js"/>
<div id="lightning">
    //creating lightning component
                                  {label : ""},
            console.log("component is being created here");
<script src='/canvas/sdk/js/publisher.js'></script>
    // When the panel is displayed, enable the submit button
    Sfdc.canvas.publisher.subscribe({name: "publisher.showPanel", onData:function(e) {
    Sfdc.canvas.publisher.publish({name: "publisher.setValidForSubmit", payload: "true"});}});

// When the save button is pressed, call the apex method, and close the panel
     Sfdc.canvas.publisher.subscribe({ name: "publisher.post", onData: function(e) {
                    //  To Close the publisher panel
                        { name: "publisher.close", payload:{refresh:"true"}});  }});                

Apex class

public class tes_button {
public static String hello(String val){
    return 'Hello ' + val;
