I have a custome form i built from a list using SharePoint Designer. I would like a message to popup after the user has clicked the save button. I have played arounf with presaveaction but no luck. I don't want to redirect to a new page but e.g just an alert ot a jquery pop message to load. Thanks in Advance

PreSaveAction should work for you, something along the lines of this:

<script type="text/javascript">
function PreSaveAction() {
 alert('Thank you for the submission');
 return true;
  • Nope i want the popup to appear after the record has been added. Tried that before and when i use ur code every time i click on Save button i get the alert

  • For that, I think you'd need some sort of event receiver. PreSaveAction does processing before the item is committed to the database. Commented Jul 28, 2011 at 11:59
  • Worked great for me. Thanks for providing this solution!

try the Notify object

var  notifyId = null;
function Notify(msg, sec) {
  notifyId = SP.UI.Notify.addNotification(msg, true);

  setTimeout(function () {
    notifyId = '';
  }, (sec == null ? 1500 : sec));
  • the above code didn't work for me.Do I need to add the sp.js reference just like jQuery and spservices.js file ? on top of my Content Editor web part?

    try this one in your code Notify('This is a test...',1000); , it should work. But I did noticed that after you change to 100 it won't come up
