Hello friends, today we’ll explore the process of creating a Custom Submit button for LWC Record Form and adding a touch of personalization to the record creation and editing process. Tailoring the submit button allows you to add extra functionality, validation, or visual appeal to enhance the user experience during record submissions.

The Need for Customization:

Record Forms in LWC offer a quick and efficient way to create, edit, or view records. However, the standard Submit button might not always align with the desired user experience or specific business requirements. Creating a custom Submit button allows developers to tailor the form’s behavior, and validations, and even add additional logic before the record is submitted.

		<div class="slds-p-horizontal_small">
			<lightning-record-edit-form object-api-name="Contact" onsuccess={handleSuccess}>
				<lightning-input-field field-name="FirstName"></lightning-input-field>
				<lightning-input-field field-name="LastName"></lightning-input-field>
				<lightning-input-field field-name="Email"></lightning-input-field>
			</lightning-record-edit-form>
			<!-- Custom Submit Button -->
			<lightning-button label="Custom Submit Button" onclick={handleSubmit} variant="brand"></lightning-button>
		</div>
	</lightning-card>
</template>

customRecordForm.Js :

import { LightningElement } from 'lwc';
import { ShowToastEvent } from 'lightning/platformShowToastEvent';

export default class CustomRecordForm extends LightningElement {

    handleSubmit() {
        // Custom logic before submission

        // Submit the form
        this.template.querySelector('lightning-record-edit-form').submit();
    }

    handleSuccess() {
        const toastEvent = new ShowToastEvent({
            title: 'Success',
            message: 'Contact created successfully.',
            variant: 'success',
            mode: 'dismissable'
        });
        this.dispatchEvent(toastEvent);
    }
