This is a draft document, API subject to change.

There are two ways to be notified of embedded Paperform submissions.

1. data-onsubmit attribute

The first method, you can add an attribute to the div called data-onsubmit="myGlobalFunctionName". So your embed code would look like:

<div data-paperform-id="contact-paperform" data-onsubmit="myGlobalFunctionName"></div><script>(function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); script.src = "";document.body.appendChild(script); })()</script>

A global function by that name will be called when the form is submitted. It is passed a single argument which is an object with the following structure;

  submission_id: "XXXXXXXXXX",
total: null, //if there was a price processed
data: [
title: "My Question Title",
key: "xjsdjc", //Pre-fill key
value: "Dean" //The results of the submission

2. Event listener

Embedded forms also emit a custom event by the name of PaperformSubmission on submission, which can be listened to on the <div> from the embed, or on any parent element. Details of the submission are located in event.details.


window.addEventListener('PaperformSubmssion', function(e) { console.log(e) })
