So when the user click on a button to display the lightning component in a new window.

enter image description here

I'm trying to display a lightning component as a button on the lightning record page in the highlights panel beside standard salesforce buttons. Is there any way to add custom component within highlights panel?

You can't add a component itself there. You can create an Action on the object that has a Lightning Component as its target, and then add that action to the Page Layout that your highlights panel is drawing from.


Try to create a custom Action and add lightning component Make sure Lightning component has : lightningQuickActionWithoutHeader


<aura:component implements="force:lightningQuickActionWithoutHeader,force:hasRecordId">

  • yes implements quickactionwithoutheader but does not work.
