Element Ids in Custom Object javascript

JeffLamb
Contributor II


I have a very fundamental question regarding javascript in custom objects. How do I determine the element id of a field I want to reference in the javascript?

 

I have a simple requirement where we need to clear the contents of a text field when the record is opened for editing. Seems like it should be easy to implement this with a custom object, but I don't know how to get the element id of the field so I can reference it within the custom object.

 

If it matters, I'm using Archer 5.2 but we will be moving to 5.3 SP1 soon.

Hi David,

 

 

 

For example, I want to create a customized object to pop-up a new IE

window. The window’s url is composed by some filed value from Archer.

In that case you would use a calculated field instead.

 

concatenate("<a herf=""myurl",[Field With value],"" target=""_blank"">Text to hyperlink</a>")

Hi David,

 

 

 

And concatenate function didn’t allow us to make single quotation mark.

 

For example, Concatenate(“[Link | http://www.w3schools.com]” generated an error.

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks,

Can you post the entire calculation?  The you posted above is incomplete.

Hi Davide,

 

 

 

"[Text to hyperlink | https:]"

 

 

 

It passed the formula validation. But it generated errors when we click

this link.

 

Thanks,

The calculation has to be in this format to work,

concatenate("<a herf=""https://www.google.com?",[Field With value],"" target=""_blank"">Text to hyperlink</a>")

Hi David,

 

 

 

But in this format (concatenate), we couldn’t pass the formula validation.

It keep giving us invalid syntax message.

 

 

 

Thanks,

I was missing a extra double-quote,

CONCATENATE("<a href=""https://www.google.com?",[Field With value],""" target=""_blank"">Text to hyperlink</a>")

Hi David,

 

 

 

Problem solved. I’ve re-checked the formula to make sure it correct.

 

 

 

Thanks so much for your help.

I was trying to follow this example and create a simple jquery alert that would display the text in a field, but it does not seem to work.

My field id is 20223 and it is a text field (which I'm a little unsure the formatting in the jquery for other field types - btw)

 

script type="text/javascript"

Sys.Application.add_load(function(){

alert($('div[id*="f20223c"]').text());

alert($('div[id*="f20223c"]').val());

});

/script

 

Instead of div, I tried input, as well.
