Is it possible to call standard edit task action from a lightning component button? I actually want to remove "Mark as Complete" standard button on task record page. and i could not find a way so i am trying to replace standard compact layout with a custom lightning component. But i want to be able to invoke "Edit Task" standard action.

You want to invoke the standard edit popup in lightning, You need to navigate users to below URL on button click:-


You can use force:navigateToURL to navigate via lightning aura component.

Another option would be using force:editRecord to edit the record which invoke the standard edit record panel in Lightning.

editRecord : function(component, event, helper) {
    var editRecordEvent = $A.get("e.force:editRecord");
         "recordId": component.get("v.contact.Id")
