  • Screen Action is an extension that allows you to reuse screen actions !
  • Call web block actions from their parents.
  • Avoids the unecessary network trafic of the widget_click component.

How it works:

  • The extension uses reflection to find and invoke the screen action through the provided name.



  • Important: Make sure that the action that your are invoking doesn't invokes the source action or you may end up in an endless loop.
  • Currently this component does NOT support screen actions with input parameters.
  • Notice: This component takes advantage of private and undocumented Platform APIs, which can change without notice. As a result, this component may unexpectedly break as the Platform is upgraded. We advise proper testing to ensure that your applications continue to work as expected when upgrading/patching the Platform.
