I have a pice code:

navigateToRecordEditPage(event) {
            type: 'standard__recordPage',
            attributes: {
                recordId: event.target.recordId,
                objectApiName: 'Account',
                actionName: 'edit'

This code opens an edit modal. I want to catch when the user clicks 'save' on this modal. How can I do it?

  • Hi, You cannot catch that event, you need to override the edit button for that. Commented Apr 25, 2020 at 13:32
  • so after that, I need to override the edit action and write a modal component it cause more work... Commented Apr 25, 2020 at 14:58
  • What is your requirement exactly? why do you want to catch a save event? Commented Apr 25, 2020 at 16:58
  • because I want to refresh data in component from which I call the method after edit Commented Apr 25, 2020 at 17:46

So, I figured out it is impossible. If u want to do that you need to override standard edit modal.


A long workaround however saves some custom dev is using a platform event and then calling your refresh method in there. See this article, also has a link to a fix to the original article LWC - empApi for publishing and subscribing platform event from Lightning web component
