I have a form that I want to add JS to so that when it is submitted, the confirmation text is fired into the "status messages" block or any block in the help/admin block section.

Basically, here is the form and upon submit, I want the post message to display in a block rather than the user be sent to another page.

<form name="email_signup" action="http://example.com">
<input type="text" name="emailAddress" placeholder="Enter email">
<input type="submit" value="Join">

You should create this form through the Form API in a module, then in the form submit handler you can use Messenger to do this.


You can see that drupal_set_message now routes through it:

function drupal_set_message($message = NULL, $type = 'status', $repeat = FALSE) {
  @trigger_error('drupal_set_message() is deprecated in Drupal 8.5.0 and will be removed before Drupal 9.0.0. Use \\Drupal\\Core\\Messenger\\MessengerInterface::addMessage() instead. See https://www.drupal.org/node/2774931', E_USER_DEPRECATED);
  $messenger = \Drupal::messenger();
  if (isset($message)) {
      ->addMessage($message, $type, $repeat);
  return $messenger

This is how flash/status updates are created.
