Based on your description , I think you don't need to care about Edit Button,

  • Just open your editform.aspx page in a new window ,
  • Edit your page
  • Add script editor.
  • Add your code.

Once you click Edit button , it should now show editform.aspx then the custom code at script editor should be run.

Meanwhile, If you are using SSOM via C# you can develop an EventReceiver before item updated SPItemEventReceiver.ItemUpdating to handles the synchronous event that occurs before an item is changed.

Check an example at Developing an Event Receiver for the ItemUpdating event

  • I follow your step and add the this code which post by siddharth $("a[id='Ribbon.ListForm.Display.Manage.EditItem-Large']").click()

But as per my analysis, this might not work. because ribbon elements are being control by ribbon framework which is loaded at client side.Enabling/disabling, redirecting etc will be overridden by this in whatever case you do.

Though for sake of question, you can use below code to bind jquery click event to that button.

    $("a[id='Ribbon.ListForm.Display.Manage.EditItem-Large']").click(function() {
  alert( "Handler for .click() called." );
return false;
