  • What happens instead? Have you made any attempt to debug this problem? Are you getting any errors?

  • Nothing happens when I click on the button.. Commented Jan 1, 2018 at 14:55
  • That doesn't at all answer the question of if you have looked at the logs.

  • Hello.. Thanks for your reply.. Yes. I checked console logs (and debug logs as well) and there isn't any error message except some distrust message.

The v. prefix is used to access aura:attribute values. To invoke a controller method you need to use the c. prefix i.e.:


See e.g. Trailhead's Handle Actions with Controllers.

I don't know why the button is silently failing for you. For me I got an error dialog that hinted at the problem:

Access Check Failed! AttributeSet.get(): attribute 'clickHandle' of component 'markup://c:wizControls {62:465;a}' is not visible to 'markup://c:wizControls {62:465;a}'.

It is well worth getting familiar with your browser's development tools that allow you to set breakpoints and examine values and log to the console. Otherwise even small mistakes can take a long time to figure out.
