However, I've also created quickcreate link that opens up the same drawer as the create-actions.js file is responsible for. Of course, none of the modifications are visible when the quickcreate link is used. Is there a way to make the quickcreate link delegate the opening of the create drawer to create-actions.js? Otherwise a huge amount of code would have to be duplicated, which is just wrong.
In SugarCRM, I made a custom create-actions.js file that opens a create drawer when the user clicks on the create button. This file is heavily moidfied so that the drawer has different behaviour and also a preview pane with data on the right hand side. It all works fine.
