When the user entering some data into the form and for some reason ,clicks a button or tab that will automatically navigate away from the form without giving any alert or  without saving the date into the form. we can able to fix these kind of scenarios by using simple java scripts

Learning Objective

Warn on unsaved Changes

Use cases


Navigation- warn on Unsaved Changes, You could achieve this using Execute JavaScript functions. Let us see the step by step process to achieve this.


Step 1: Create a Global Page as “Zero” and also create a Static Content Region

Sample Code:

<script type="text/javascript">

function Navigationalert() {

var fields = document.getElementById('wwvFlowForm').elements;

for (var i=0; i<fields.length; i++) {

$x(fields[i]).onchange = function () {



window.unsaved = '';

window.onbeforeunload = function() {

return window.unsaved ? 'There may be unsaved changes to your data.' : undefined;



Step2: Create a Dynamic action and set when  “Event” condition as “Change”.

Sample Code:

jQuery Selector :  .a-TreeView-node–leaf

Action : Execute JavaScript Code

Sample code:

Execute JavaScript Code : Navigationalert();
