I have a requirement wherein I have to display a warning message to the user on record save. It doesn't prevent records save, but just show's an error message.

I have been trying to think of the best solution but nothing makes sense. it doesn't make sense to display a component content based on record value's and that's something I was thinking of implementing.

What would be the best possible solution to show a 1 time warning message based on certain values whenever the user save's the record on record page.


  • When you say warning, is it something the user has to acknowledge before the save can continue? Or is it just merely a toast that just shows when the save is occurring? – Bryan Anderson Nov 18 '19 at 15:05
  • @BryanAnderson It's merely a toast which presents a message to the user and it does not prevent the record from getting saved.. The record would still be saved.. It's just that this message would be displayed only for a few conditions and not always. – Ashutosh Arora Nov 18 '19 at 15:11
  • Not my solution, but this post (blog.texei.com/…) has a way to have a lightning component hook into the Change Data Capture API, and then you can fire a toast based on the result from that API call – Bryan Anderson Nov 18 '19 at 15:14
  • One way is to override the layout with custom record forms and show the message using submit handler events – RedDevil Nov 18 '19 at 20:35

Short of writing code, you can't implement this right now. There's an Idea you should go vote on.

  • this idea is 12 years old :( – RedDevil Nov 18 '19 at 20:36
  • @sfdcfox yes.. the idea seems to be pretty old.. Looking for a workaround to handle this scenario.. – Ashutosh Arora Nov 19 '19 at 10:42
