Forms & Mura.js - Mura Docs v7.1

Forms & Mura.js

Mura forms are loaded asynchronously. So, if you wish to run some scripts, you need to use a special method to "reopen" the form, and then add your scripts. This can be done by leveraging a special Mura.js method: Mura.DisplayObject.Form.reopen({});.

Once the form has been "reopened," simply leverage one or more of the predefined events from the code example below to inject any custom logic.

NOTE: If not using deferred Mura.js then you do not need to reopen the display object classes within a Mura.preInit() method. The option to defer the loading of Mura.js was introduced in Mura 7.1 and is controlled by the this.deferMuraJS theme contentRenderer.cfc value.

Mura.preInit(function(m) {

		// triggered after the form has rendered on the browser
		onAfterRender: function() {
			var form_container = this.context.targetEl
				, the_form = m(form_container).find('form');

			console.log('afterRender triggered');

			// This is where you register your custom form listeners, 
                        // for example ...
			m('button.form-submit').on('click', function(event) {
				console.log('Form button clicked!')

		// triggered when the form has been submitted, 
                // before processing/validation begins
		, onSubmit: function () {
			var the_button =
				, the_form = the_button.form;

			console.log('onSubmit triggered');

			// you could run a script here (obviously) ... then,
			// return true if you want to continue, 
                        // or false if you wish to stop processing
			return true;

		// triggered after submit, and form has errors
		, onAfterErrorRender: function() {
			var resp = JSON.parse(event.currentTarget.response)
				, errors =;

			console.log('afterErrorRender triggered');

		// triggered after successful form submit (no errors)
		, onAfterResponseRender: function () {
			var response_container = this.context.targetEl;

			console.log('afterResponseRender triggered');
