Triggering actions from a custom button element

    I searched through the forum and I don't think a similar requirement. Do not hesitate to point me to an existing post if I did not searched well enough ;-).

    So, I need the following :

    a form is displayed ( few fields , whatever they are ) .
    to validate the form, I need to trigger an external "step-up" page.

    From my understanding of Fabrik, I can disable all the "standard button", add a "button element" which will trigger a javascript.

    Having that said, how can I have the following behavior :

    1 - user fill in form
    2 - user click on "submit custom button"
    3 - Step up is executed. If result is ok, form data are saved. If result is NOT ok, data are of course not saved. -> IS THIS POSSIBLE ?

    Other options : My step-up mechanism manage in "real time" user groups belonging. So maybe check if user belongs to a group and if he is , just save the form, if not, trigger the step up.

    I'm open to any suggestion here of course ( these ones or any other )

    Thanks for your insights !

    What is the "step up" doing? Is it an other Fabrik form?

    In principle you can validate a form with a php plugin (where you can also check the user group), you can redirect the form on submit to an other form, you can validate stuff with a php plugin on form load etc.

    hi, step-up is not a Fabrik form .
    it is an html/javascript page.
    In short : javascript will perform an external authentication and send back a yes/no answer.
    based on this, I want to submit or not the form
