I'm using RH 2019 New UI version -  did RH remove the ability to edit the "inline script" when you're trying to insert inline JavaScript for a custom button like we used to have in version 2017? Thank you so much, everyone. Really appreciate it.

Once you've added your button, you then need to select it in the "Select button" list. That will change the options in the General and Javascript sections. Then you should be able to edit the onClick field for the selected button.

Understood. I'm so sorry for the misleading screenshot. I know what you're talking about, but on the "OnClick" field when I added a new button and after I selected that button from the "Select button:" list, it doesn't allow inline javascript text block to open like we used to have in RH '17.

Sorry, in that case I can't help as I've never added a custom button in Classic. In New UI, you can type javascript in the field and that is all as far as I know.

No worries at all. I always appreciate you, Amebr. I found this video that either you or Rick created (I'm not sure) and posted it in one of the posts in the past; and that's how I know we used to be able to do Inline JavaScript https://www.screencast.com/t/VFg7kxNB

Rick hasn't been active on the forums for a couple of years now.

 

If you save the script in the Assets folder, you can then right click on it and select Show In Explorer. Then you can open it from there in your text editor.
