Problem : In lightning-record-edit-form handleSubmit is not getting called

Details : Below is the code and when user clicks on "Update Opportunity" record is getting saved but nor handleSubmit nor handleSuccess is getting fired.


    <lightning-card  title="Opportunity Update">
        <lightning-record-edit-form object-api-name="Opportunity" record-id="<HardCodedId>">

            <lightning-input-field field-name="Name"></lightning-input-field>
            <lightning-input-field field-name="AccountId"></lightning-input-field>
                    label="Update Opportunity">


import { LightningElement } from 'lwc';
import { ShowToastEvent } from 'lightning/platformShowToastEvent';

export default class updatedeal extends LightningElement {

      event.preventDefault();       // stop the form from submitting
      const fields = event.detail.fields;
      console.log('Fields -->',fields);

   handleSuccess(event) {
         const evt = new ShowToastEvent({
            title: 'Success',
            message: 'Opportunity is update successfully',
            variant: 'success'

If you have any pointer let me know.


I think it's just something minor. The lightning-record-edit-form tag is missing the onsucces and onsubmit attributes.

<lightning-record-edit-form object-api-name="Opportunity" record-id="<HardCodedId>" onsuccess={handleSuccess} onsubmit={handleSubmit} >
  • Ohhh..I missed this. Now I feel like stupid. Thank you very much. – Kiran Machhewar Aug 17 '19 at 1:13

    To the future google searcher (aka me :) ). Another easy to miss mistake that has caught us out a couple times is using a capital 'S' when defining the submit button type. Using <lighting-button type="Submit"> will not work....it must be all lowercase. type="submit" – Scott McClung Oct 29 '19 at 14:13
