I am comng across an error that I am unsure how to solve. I am using force:recordData to update a field.


<aura:attribute name="record" type="Object" />
<aura:attribute name="simpleRecord" type="Opportunity" />
<aura:attribute name="recordError" type="String" />
<aura:attribute name="fieldsToQuery" type="String" />

<force:recordData aura:id="recordEditor"
targetFields ="{!v.simpleRecord}"

Js Controller: (where field1 is a checkbox field)

doInit : function(component, event, helper) {

        component.set("v.simpleRecord.Initiate_Scoring__c", true);
                    component.find("recordEditor").saveRecord($A.getCallback(function(saveResult) {
                    if (saveResult.state === "SUCCESS" || saveResult.state === "DRAFT") {
                        alert("Save completed successfully.");
                    } else if (saveResult.state === "INCOMPLETE") {
                        alert("User is offline, device doesn't support drafts.");
                    } else if (saveResult.state === "ERROR") {
                        alert('Problem saving record, error: ' + 
                    } else {
                       alert('Unknown problem, state: ' + saveResult.state + ', error: ' + JSON.stringify(saveResult.error));

 onRender: function(component, event, helper) {      



However it is coming up with the following message:

[Error while creating content for lightning component quick action]
quickActionHandlerHelper.js failed to create component - 

Updated Question with the new error message.

Any Suggestions?

You're updating Boolean field with text

component.set("v.simpleRecord.field1", "true");

It should be like this:

 component.set("v.simpleRecord.field1", true);

    Also you shouldn't set an attribute's field in this way - you should do like that: var simpleRecord = component.get("v.simpleRecord"); then change the field simpleRecord.field1 = true; then set the attribute back component.set("v.simpleRecord", simpleRecord); – Itai Shmida Mar 27 '18 at 8:50
