Can you add a screenshot (including the browser console) to share any errors when your released block tries to create a record?

attached .

Is there any error inside the block or in the developer console after you click “Add marker”?

No error in block or console .

Hm, this is going to be tricky to figure out without seeing the code of the block. If this is an open source block, can you link to the repo? Otherwise can you paste the relevant files (i.e. the component that has the “Add marker” button and the onClick handler code)

Adding on to Kasra’s suggestions: one common cause of the “it works in development, but not after releasing” is that you’re relying on globalConfig values that were set in development, but haven’t been set in the release block yet (they have separate globalConfig stores).

This seems like it might be happening here since your omdbApiKey is undefined - is it stored in globalConfig?

To test this theory, you can clear your globalConfig in development from the block developer tools and see if the same issue occurs.

There’s more details in this previous forum thread and the “Polishing your block” guide.

yes found the issue i was missing id in airtable ui buttons. i got to fix by reverting to regular input button

function AddForm(props) {
const [name ,setName] = useState()

const [seaty, setSeatY] = useState()
const [isDialogOpen, setIsDialogOpen] = useState(false);

   const base = useBase();
   const table = base.getTableByName('Markers');
  const records = useRecords(table.selectRecords());

async function handleSubmit(e) {
const errors = {};
if (!name){
// setName(“required”)
return ;
try {
//save record
table.createRecordAsync({‘Name’: name, ‘X’: seatx, ‘Y’:seaty});

  // marker
} catch (e) {

const handleSaveMarkerClick = () => {
// const addRecord = (record, recordFields) => {
// if (table.hasPermissionToUpdateRecord(record, recordFields)) {
// // table.createRecordAsync(recordFields);

//         }

return (

        {isDialogOpen && (
            <Dialog onClose={() => setIsDialogOpen(false)} width="320px">
                <Dialog.CloseButton />

                <Label htmlFor="my-input"></Label>
               <form onSubmit= {handleSubmit}>
                <legend>Add New Marker</legend>
                <div className="form-group">
                <Input value={name} onChange={e => setName(} id="Name" type="text" placeholder="Name"  />
                <label> Seat</label>
                <Input value={seatx} onChange={e => setSeatX(} id="seatx" type="text" placeholder="X" />
                <Input value={seaty} onChange={e => setSeatY(} id="seaty" type="text" placeholder="y" />
icon="edit">Add marker </Button>

                <Button onClick={() => setIsDialogOpen(false)}>Close</Button>
