    I feel like this should be simple but can't find a straightforward answer or example for some reason.

    How could I add a simple custom button to the top of a Table's Home Page that could be tied to some custom JavaScript a la:
    I replied to a user in a previous thread but now see that he may be AWOL. Thanks for any help!

    Unfortunately, Dan has not been on this forum in quite a while. I suggest that you state your need as a new question and there are always a variety of solutions once we understand what do you want the button to do.

    I have some JS code I tested in the dev tools console that copies a QB html table to the clipboard. I'd just like a button on the page above the table(like in the screenshot) that can execute that code. I'm assuming I'll need to put that JS code in a code page?

    Thanks

    You can do this with script by slightly modifying a solution provided by @Everett Patterson here:
    link

    Use the image on load technique and then add the HTML for your button in the report description (be sure to tick the check box to show description):


    Result:
    ​Code:
    <a class='Vibrant Success' style="border:0px solid green; background-color:#f55c24; text-align: center;-box-shadow: 0px 10px 10px -7px #000000, 9px 7px 10px 1px #000000; box-shadow: 0px 10px 10px -12px #000000, 2px 2px 10px 1px #000000; " href='YOUR_BUTTON_URL_GOES_HERE'>Add Record</a>

    Hi @Adam Keever, I'm the OP. Been away for a while, and I hadn't seen this reply. I was able to make the IOL process work a year and a half ago, though not how you suggested here. My client wants me to hopefully modify the process so it works in the new UI. Do you have any suggestions for creating a button that could execute code from a code page? Could this HTML button in the description work?

    Thanks!​​​
