how can I detect in the Javascript-Code if a form is opened as “New Form” or as “Edit Form”. We know that It is possible to save “New Form” and “Edit Form” with differing Javascript-Code, but this is easily overwritten when all options are accidently set while saving the form.

Dear UDRO,
You can check it like this:

Code: Select all

if(fd._formType() == 'New'){
  //new form code
else if(fd._formType() == 'Edit'){
  //edit form code

Thank you, that's the code we have been looking for.
