I am getting a NaN value for response.getReturnValue() and data is not being stored. What exactly I need to do to identify an error message

This is my controller

doSubmit : function(cmp, evt, hlpr) {

    var regForm=cmp.get("v.RegForm_DB");

    var action=cmp.get("c.Save_Reg_Details");
    action.setParams({RegForm_DB: regForm});

    //Create a call back that is executed after
    //server side action returns
        var state=response.getState();
        if(state === "SUCCESS"){
            //Alert the user with value
            //returned from the user
            alert("From server: ",response.getReturnValue());
            console.info('response', response);
            console.log("From server: ",+response.getReturnValue());
        else if(state === "INCOMPLETE"){
            console.log("iNCOMPLETE message: ");
            else if(state === "ERROR"){
                var errors=response.getError();
                    if(errors[0] && errors[0].message){
                        console.log("Error message: ",+ errors[0].message);
                    console.log("Unknown error");



This is my Apex Class

public class Save_Registration_Details {

public static id Save_Reg_Details(learning123__Registration_Details__c RegForm_DB){
    //inserting DML Operation
   insert RegForm_DB;
    return RegForm_DB.id;


This is my Console Log (How and where to find an exact error in response) enter image description here

This is my Component Class

This is my Registration_Detail Object and the field relationships

You are't getting back NaN, which would be quite odd. Your server controller method will either return an Id or throw an exception.

You have a couple of bugs in your JavaScript.

        alert("From server: ",response.getReturnValue());
        console.info('response', response);
        console.log("From server: ",+response.getReturnValue());

alert() does not take two parameters, so response.getReturnValue() is never shown to you.

Your console.log() statement has either a spurious comma or a spurious plus (you need to pick one or the other). This results in response.getReturnValue() being interpreted in a numeric sense, but it's not a number.

You can illustrate this yourself by doing

console.log('Test', +'blah');

in a JavaScript console. You'll get back

Test NaN

The fact that your console.log() messages are showing at all implies your server controller method is succeeding, since those messages are logged in the 'SUCCESS' branch of your logic.

  • Thanks, David! I am able to see a record with the response code. I have removed all the bugs which you have mentioned
