Communicating between the Client Script and the Server Script of a widget

We’ve had a lot of questions about how the client side and server side of a widget can communicate, so this week I thought it would be a good idea to offer a quick demonstration. In this tutorial we will create a widget that allows the user to add or remove items from a list. In this case it’s just a simple Array, but it could just as easily be using GlideRecord against a table.

Here is the sample code used in the video:

HTML:

Server Script:

Client Script:

  1. Thanks Nathan for this quick shot. Though, you might want to change places of Client script to server-script and vice-versa.

    Anyways thanks for this.

  2. Thanks, Nathan!!
    I was looking for the server call method implementation from client script and this one is awesome.
