Recursive access to editor

Recursive access to editor

Hello,

I'm spending a couple of hours now on recursive starting up an editor.create window after submitting the previous row.

    production_delivery_registrations_multiple_editor.on('submitComplete', function(e, data, action) {
        // production_delivery_registrations_create_multiple();
        $('.btn-add-multiple').click();
    });

Both lines will trigger creation of a new record, but because the previous record is saved, but the javascript code isn't ended yet. This causes strange behaviour.

    I'm not sure what your code is doing on submitComplete. But I have done something similar and had to put a small delay, using setTimeout before calling the function that invokes a new create window. Without the delay there seems to be a race condition that causes the page to stop functioning after the first submit.

    Thanks. My second intention was to do this by button click.I'll look at the timeOut.

    $('.btn-add-multiple).delay(1000).click() doesn't work.

    Creating a second button on which is clicked (to get submitComplete) ready and the second button clicks on the button, also gives the race condition.

    Dopes delay work with click()? The documentation refers only to the jQuery event queue.

    Try:

    setTimeout( function () {
      $('.btn-add-multiple').click();
    }, 100 );

    Ok, i got it working

        production_delivery_registrations_multiple_editor.on('submitComplete', function(e, data, action) {
            // Logischerwijs zou je opnieuw de functie willen aanroepen, maar dat werkt dus niet.
            // production_delivery_registrations_create_multiple();
            
            // Workaround zou kunnen zijn om automatisch nogmaals op de button te klikken.
            // $('.btn-add-multiple').click();
            setTimeout(function(){
                console.log("Timeout ");
                $('.btn-add-multiple').click();
            },500);
        });
    

    A timeout, less then 200 ms isn't working. for safety, i used 500 ms.

    Thanks for time.
