Below you can see a part of a custom mailing component that I've written. To, in the end, send the actual mail, the "Mail" button needs to be pressed.

Visually, it would be much better if the button would appear left of the "Cancel" button in the footer of the form.

How am I able to do this?

You can find the code of the component and a screenshot below.

Already a big thanks!

enter image description here

<aura:component implements=....>
    <aura:attribute name="recordId" type="Id" />
    <aura:attribute name="mails" type="String" default="" />
    <aura:attribute name="body" type="String" default="" />
    <aura:attribute name="subject" type="String" default="" />

        Keep in mind these suggestions will be based on the current available data.<br></br>
        <lightning:button label="Mail" onclick="{!c.mail}"/>

Unfortunately, you cannot modify the standard footer. As a workaround, you can implement force:lightningQuickActionWithoutHeader instead of force:lightningQuickAction in your component. This will remove the standard footer including the cancel button .

Then you can customize both Mail and Cancel Button as per your requirement using slds.

  • Too bad we cannot alter the standard footer, I thought I looked over some options, clearly not :( Thanks for the response! Commented Oct 4, 2017 at 8:36
