How to add a Button to the Properties Panel

Hi team!

I’ve been struggling with this for a while now, i want to add a button in the properties panel to call my form builder inside a modal, so i can allow the user to edit a form, then grab the result of the modal (the form markup) and save it to the schema, but im not making it very far.

Any thoughts?


How far did you make it? What have you tried yet?

I tried creating a new element in the entry factory to generate my button, but withou much success…

Any help is appreciated!

Can you share any code that shows what you’ve been working on? That would make it easier to help you.

Im afraid i cant share much code with you, but what im trying to acomplish is basically:

  • Render a button on the properties panel (almost made it this part)
  • Attach a function to the click event, that has access to the selected element on the diagram.
  • Grab the modal result so i can save it to a field on the selected element on the diagram.

Thanks in advance!

So you want to add a button that opens a modal that let’s you edit a property of the element once you confirm/close it?

Yep, thats exacly it !!

I even got the button to render in a somewhat broken way, but thats about as far as i got.
