Getting event data from "dhx_save_btn" function


Hi I am trying to query the database to determine if this new event should be saved. I think I am in the right spot in the dhtmlxscheduler.js.

so in the code below I am getting event data, but the data I think is original settings and not the user selected data before clicking the save button. What object would I use to get the current data in the sections?

vars.start_date has a date of - Mon Apr 22 2019 07:30:00 GMT-0400 (Eastern Daylight Time)
I am expecting this - Mon Apr 22 2019 13:00:00 GMT-0400 (Eastern Daylight Time)

thanks for any help!

var i = scheduler._getClassName(t);
if (t && i)
switch (i) {
case “dhx_save_btn”:

          let vars = scheduler._lame_copy(scheduler.getEvent(scheduler._lightbox_id));

          let startDate = vars.start_date;
          let endDate = vars.end_date;


Hi, @RonM

There is only one way to get the current data in the sections of the lightbox - get access to the element by using, for example, querySelector() and then get its value manually.


Hi Polina, Thanks for the response.

do you have example code on using the querySelector()? Sorry I am very much a novice with web programming and am having trouble figuring this out.



Please check more details and the example:


Thank you for the reply I will check out the examples you listed.

Is using “scheduler.formSection(‘time’).getValue();” an option?


Yes, you can use the snippet system to check http://snippet.dhtmlx.com/945e6b546
