Since: Editor 1.1

Form initialised for the remove action event.
Please note - this property requires the Editor extension for DataTables.

The full Editor reference documentation is available to registered users of Editor - the information shown below is a summary only. If you already have an Editor license please , alternatively an Editor license can be purchased on this site, or sign up for the free trial.


Remove method activated event, fired when the remove() API method has been called, just prior to the form being shown. Useful for manipulating the form specifically for the remove state.

As of Editor 1.8 the init* events can return a Promise which is used to delay the execution of any further Editor code until the Promise has been resolved. This is useful if you need to make an Ajax call to the server for any additional information, validation, locking or any other async action.

Event naming / backwards compatibility note

Prior to Editor 1.3, events were prefixed with the string on and this event was called onInitRemove. That event name can still be used, and will function exactly the same way as the event documented here. The new name is used for simplicity and coherence with the event naming conventions in DataTables.
