Starting Workflow from RP other than with click

Hi

I want to start a workflow when a button within a repeating group is pressed (not clicked).

Any ideas how i could do that?

thanks

Hello @pascualor

I found a method but you should use a free plugin. (BTW thanks to @lottemint.md )

The “Elements in view” plugin checks the appearance of an element. Whatever element you want to control you need to give it an HTML Id.

I added a hidden and transparent “shape” to the Repeating Group and left the HTML Id blank.

Then set up the condition. If the text is pressed, “shape” appears and its ID is set as 1.

Although it worked the way I wanted, but it was no different from “clicking”. So I made a small change in the workflow.

Set up a custom event and schedule it to run in 2 seconds.

In this case if the button is pressed for two seconds, I send a parameter to the page.

I hope its works for you!
