Step 4:- Create Lightning Component : submitFormCustomObjCmpHelper.js

From Developer Console >> File >> New >> Lightning Component >> JavaScript Helper

submitFormCustomObjCmpHelper.js [JavaScript Helper File]

JavaScript helper function in Salesforce by w3web.net

  1.   ({
  2. 	cityPickListView : function(component, event, helper) {
  3. 		var action = component.get("c.pickList");
  4.         action.setParams({"obj":"NewStudent__c","str":"City__c"});        
  5.         action.setCallback(this, function(response){
  6.             var state = response.getState();            
  7.             if(state=="SUCCESS"){
  8.                 var result = response.getReturnValue();
  9.                 component.set('v.cityListStr',result);
  10.  
  11.             }
  12.         });
  13.         $A.enqueueAction(action);
  14. 	},
  15.  
  16.  
  17.     statePickListView : function(component, event, helper) {
  18. 		var action = component.get("c.pickList");
  19.         action.setParams({"obj":"NewStudent__c","str":"State__c"});        
  20.         action.setCallback(this, function(response){
  21.             var state = response.getState();            
  22.             if(state=="SUCCESS"){
  23.                 var result = response.getReturnValue();
  24.                 component.set('v.stateListStr',result);
  25.  
  26.             }
  27.         });
  28.         $A.enqueueAction(action);
  29. 	},
  30.  
  31. })

Step 5:- Create Lightning Component Style: submitFormCustomObjCmp.css

From Developer Console >> File >> New >> Lightning Component >> Component Style CSS

submitFormCustomObjCmp.css [Style CSS]

  1.    .THIS {
  2.     background:#fff !important;
  3. }
  4. .THIS .slds-input.has-error, .THIS .slds-select.has-error {
  5.     background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);
  6.     border-color: rgb(194, 57, 52);
  7.     box-shadow: rgb(194, 57, 52) 0 0 0 1px inset;
  8.     background-clip: padding-box;
  9.   }

Step 6:- Create Apex Class : submitFormCustomObjCmpCtrl

From Developer Console >> File >> New >> Apex Class

studentInfoCtrl.apxc [Apex Class Controller]

  1.    public class submitFormCustomObjCmpCtrl {
  2.     @AuraEnabled
  3.     public static void newStudentMethod(NewStudent__c studentRecId){
  4.         upsert studentRecId;
  5.     } 
  6.  
  7.     @AuraEnabled
  8.     public static string newStudentInsrt(string nameStr, string emailStr){
  9.         NewStudent__c stdntNameStr = NEW NewStudent__c();
  10.         List<NewStudent__c> stdntNameList=[SELECT Id, Name FROM NewStudent__c WHERE Name =: nameStr]; 
  11.         IF(stdntNameList.size() > 0){
  12.             RETURN 'Duplicate name Not Allow';
  13.         }ELSE{
  14.         stdntNameStr.Name=nameStr;
  15.         stdntNameStr.Email__c=emailStr;
  16.         INSERT stdntNameStr;
  17.           RETURN 'Inserted successfully';  
  18.         }    
  19.  
  20.     }
  21.  
  22.     @AuraEnabled
  23.     public static List<String> pickList(String obj, String str) { 
  24.  
  25.          List<String> regList = NEW List<String>(); 
  26.             Schema.DescribeFieldResult plistvalues = Schema.getGlobalDescribe().get(obj).getDescribe().fields.getMap().get(str).getDescribe();
  27.             FOR(PicklistEntry ent:plistvalues.getpicklistvalues())     {
  28.                 regList.add(ent.getLabel());
  29.             }
  30.              RETURN regList;
  31.     }
  32. }
