I am creating custom object records using standard salesforce record creation feature by firing the event force:createRecord from my custom component.

After saving the record, Page navigates to standard record view. But I want to handle the successful case(event) instead and perform reloadData/refreshView on my custom component.

Whereas for Record Edit - "force:recordSaveSuccess" Event is working when using Component force:recordEdit (instead of force:editRecord event). But I could find no such component for Create Record.

Is there any way we can handle successful case (record saved) or override Save or set callback??

createRecord : function (component, event, helper) {
    var createRecordEvent = $A.get("e.force:createRecord");
        "entityApiName": "MyCustomObject__c"

Thanks for your time..


Unfortunately there is no such event available in force:createRecord

If you want to achieve this you need to create your custom lightning component which will do the similar functionality and then you can handle the behavior.

  • Thanks for the info, Probably I will leave this as is. This is a temporary component and we would like to go with standard feature at this moment, will create custom component when required.
