Button that can change a field and then go to edit mode

    I have a declined button where when you press it, the status will be changed to declined. However, I put in a rule where a status cant be declined without a decline reason. Currently, when the button is pressed it will bypass my rule.  Is there any way I can make my button change the status to declined and then go to edit mode, so I can choose a decline reason?

    Can you post the code for your button and then I will add the extra code to land the user in edit mode?

    sure thing, this is my code

    var text Declined = URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?act=API_EditRecord&apptoken=dghxdxrc9kgh4qbn746c7dje9wds&rid="&[Record ID#]&"&_fid_6=Declined";

    "javascript:{"&
    "fetch('"& $declined &"');"&
    "location.reload('"& $Declined &"');"&
    "}"

    Try this. The only issue will be where you want to land the user after the record is saved. 

    var text Declined = URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?act=API_EditRecord&apptoken=dghxdxrc9kgh4qbn746c7dje9wds&rid="&[Record ID#]&"&_fid_6=Declined";

    var text EditMode = URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?a=er&rid=" & [Record ID#];

    $Declined
    & "&rdr=" & URLEncode($EditMode)
