Lightning component method to run only after record is created

Hello Everyone,

I have a lightning component added on the record detail page. This component has a controller method which gets fired on "refreshView" event and I have my login in that method. It works all good for all changes I do to my record.

However, I want my component to execute this controller method even when record is created. The refreshView event does not get fired when someone creates a record. Is there a way to identify this event?

Hi Saurabh,


force:refreshView fires whenever you try to access the record and refresh the record page to get the recent data.

So,I would like to refresh the created record then we will have to access the record.

Kindly let me know if it helps you and close your query by marking it as solved so that it can help others in the future.

Warm Regards,

Hi Abhishek,

Thanks for the links and your response.

I see these blogs are taking about streaming API event or periodically calling some method from lightning component.

However, I'm currently only missing with on record create event. Hence, I am bit reluctant to switch to any other way like streaming API or anything else, as it would change whole my component logic.

Hi Shirisha,

Thank you for your reply!

Could you please clarify how can I fire refreshView event specifically when record is created.?

Please note that when I say record create, user is is clicking on New button and creating a record from the window and getting automatically navigated to created record page. That's the time I wanna call the method.
