Custom object to get fieldID from field name Not working for cross-reference fields in a section

Hi @DavidPetty ,

Hope you are doing well!

We have been using the below custom object for several usecases, but unfortunately some of them are not working after the recent upgrades. It's returning 0 if the field is a crossreference grid and if its inside a section along with other fields. (not in its own section)

Your help / guidance on this will be highly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help!

@ss96 I've updated that document with the fix.  A new (css) style was introduced for cross-references that are inside of a section which also contains fields.

Hi @DavidPetty ,

I have cross reference field names as "table 1" and "table 1-new" . and I am using LookupfieldId() function to get the field id . unfortunately when i am checking id for "table 1" CR field its giving me id for "table 1-new" CR field. and due to this wrong cross reference field is updating on layout. 

I tried changing name for cross reference field as well but not sure why it is returning 0 for the id.

It was working before and now it stopped working for this CR field. What could be the reason ?

When i do inspect element I dont see it in <span> when checked in prod it is in <span> to look for Class= Subsection. why it will change config in DEV.

 

It is working now. tooltip was enabled and it was causing issue. strange.
