3258646 - Issues extending Worklist and Object Controller files - "Method 'onSave' does not exist in controller..."


  • Only methods that are defined in BaseController.js file can be extended 
  • Is there any limitation that can be shared why worklist/object controller files cannot be extended
  • Example of errors when using some of the methods of the controller:

    ~~~Sample error~~~~
    • We are able to use override hook methods (onInit, onAfretRendering).

      However, we are getting an error message when we try to override the methods from controller, in the console as below - 
      "Method 'onSave' does not exist in controller XXX.YYY.PROJECTFILE.controller.Object and cannot be overridden" (NOTE: Where XXX.YYY.PROJECTFILE is simply a dummy package name placeholder to make this a general error for reference)
