Wait, wait! Don't forget to save...

Have you ever filled out a form and accidently left the page without saving your work? It is actually quite easy to do. Thankfully, browsers have features to help prevent this from happening. The problem, however, is that taking advantage of those features can be quite difficult - until now.

The SkillBuilders Save Before Exit plug-in allows you to notify your users if they leave a page without saving their work. Simply install the plug-in and add it to your page!

Features at a glance:

  1. Detects changes made to items on the page
  2. Warning message displayed if user tries to leave page without clicking a button
    • Browser is closed
    • Back button is pressed
    • Link is clicked
    • Other...
  3. Option to customize the warning displayed
  4. Option to select elements that allow a user to leave the page without any warnings
  5. Option to select elements that should not trigger a warning when changed
  6. Methods to control whether or not a user is warned via JavaScript

Not working properly in IE
by Paul
on April 5, 2014
The default generic message only ever appears for IE (27.0,28.0)
"The page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave - data you have entered may not be saved."

The same occurs in your demo when run in IE. How do I display the intended message? and what do I need to configure to always show a message irrespective of any data changes? I need to remind the user to do a task before leaving the page.
thanks

Hi,

I'm not understanding how to set additional items to the Disable Warning Selector. Currently the default :button is in this field. I have a Select List on the page that is fireing this plug-in and I don't want it to.

How do I set this selector?

Thanks,

IE8 problem with tab. form's new rows
by SeWp
on March 18, 2013
Hi all,

I need a help with SaveBeforeExit plugin configuration.

My scenario:

I have a tabular for where one column is defined as popup LOV. I would like to use a SaveBeforeExit plugin to display a warning message when there is some not saved data on the page.
I use a jQuery selector as "Disable Warning Selector" to disable the warning message when something is changed in existing row and user clicks on LOV arrow button (this works).

table.report-standard a

But this approach does not work when the new row is created. When I create a new row and put some data to some column and then click on LOV arrow button then the warning message is displayed. I have also tried to change the event scope of dynamic action from Static to Dynamic, but without success.

Thx in advance for any help!

Does not work on Safari
by Dan McGhan
on January 10, 2013
Hamayun,

The plugin works by leveraging the DOM Level event onbeforeunload. All major desktop browsers, save Opera, support this event.

It appears that Safari on the iPad doesn't either. Unfortunately there's nothing we can do about that.

Regards,
Dan
