I've created a custom field which I'm trying to use in the CMS, but I can't get it to render correctly after saving a page.

When it initially loads, I use Requirements::javascript() calls to include my required files. This works, but when the form refreshes after a save, the field loses its styles.

Is there a way I can style the fields (execute my js) after the form refreshes?

I've read the javascript documentation here but i can't seem to find a solution.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you are not already you might like to use entwine for your javascript. Also, iirc, I had some problems with styles being applied after AJAX load of pages in ModelAdmin (SS3.0.2 I think) - simply because when the page was being retrieved via AJAX the HTML markup changed very slightly (missed a wrapping div I think).

Thanks for the reply.

I was struggling with how to do it with entwine.

For anybody with the same issue, the solution was:

        onmatch: function ()
            // load form field...
