Add custom buttons to the admin product form in Magento 2.

Product form is developed using UI-components. If we need to add a custom button to the admin product form, this can be done in the following ways.

The UI component name for the product form is:

See / adminhtml / ui_component / product_form.xml.

  1. You need to create a file with the same name and path in your module with the following content.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<form xmlns:xsi=""   xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Ui:etc/ui_configuration.xsd">
   <!--For custom button-->
   <argument name="data" xsi:type="array">
       <item name="buttons" xsi:type="array">
           <item name="customButton" xsi:type="string">WebkulCustomButtonBlockAdminhtmlProductCustomButton</item>

2. Then create a class in the file.

Vendor / module / block / admin html / product / custom button.php.

namespace WebkulCustomButtonBlockAdminhtmlProduct;
class CustomButton extends MagentoCatalogBlockAdminhtmlProductEditButtonGeneric
    public function getButtonData()
    	return [
        	'label' => __('Custom Button'),
        	'class' => 'action-secondary',
        	'on_click' => 'alert("Hello Webkul !!")',
        	'sort_order' => 10

Then, just flush the cache and your UI-Component file will merge into the main file and your button will appear among the other buttons.

When we click on this button we set an alert, it will appear.
