DOM Events Not Available on Strattic

There are a few actions that are native to plugins like Gravity Forms and Contact Form 7, that there isn’t an exact match for on Strattic. These would be:

Contact Form 7Gravity Forms
wpcf7mailfailed: Fires when an Ajax form submission has completed successfully, but it has failed in sending mail.gform_page_loaded: Fires on multi-page forms with AJAX submission enabled when changing pages (i.e. going to the next or previous page).
wpcf7spam: Fires when an Ajax form submission has completed successfully, but mail hasn’t been sent because a possible spam activity has been detected.gform_post_render: This jQuery hook is fired every time the form is rendered to allow custom jQuery to be executed. This includes initial form load, going to the next/previous page on multi-page forms, form rendered with validation errors, confirmation message displayed, etc.
gform_pre_conditional_logic

If there are any of these events you would like, please reach out and let us know the name of the event hook, and where you need it to fire, and we can adjust and update our platform.

Usage Examples

If you need to send some data to Google Tag Manager after a submission, you can do something like this:

jQuery('#gform_1').on('strattic-form-success', function(event){
    var formId = event.detail.form.id
    var formDetails = event.detail.formattedData
    window.dataLayer.push({
        'event' : 'gravityFormSubmission',
        'gfformID' : formId,
        'gfformSubmission' : formDetails
    });
});

Note: You can also rewrite this in “vanilla” JavaScript:

document.addEventListener( 'strattic-form-success', function(event){
    var formId = event.detail.form.id
    var formDetails = event.detail.formattedData
    window.dataLayer.push({
        'event' : 'gravityFormSubmission',
        'gfformID' : formId,
        'gfformSubmission' : formDetails
    });
});
