Determine if record is saved

Sometimes we need to determine in JavaScript if record is already saved or not. You can use this function for this:

 * Check if we are creating a new record,
function areCreatingNewRecord(){
  var record_id = document.getElementById("hdRecordID").value;
  if (record_id == '00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000'){
    return true;
    return false;

    Is there anything similar to test if a workflow has not been submitted, has been saved as draft or has been submitted?



  2. Dan Hutson says:

    function areCreatingNewWorkflow(){

    var instance_id = document.getElementById("instanceID").value;
    if (!!instance_id){
    return true; //workflow has been submitted
    } else {
    return false; //workflow is new or in draft

    Apologies, the ‘return true;’ should be in the else section as you’re testing if it’s a new workflow
