[] - Getting the ID of a related record using the #id

Posted by IramK on 24-May-2016 05:22


I am trying to get the id of a related record using the {!R1232234.testField#id} token on a popup.jsp page. This is not a main.jsp page. When I try to get the id using the above token, it returns "[J@7ec9d6b2" as the return value. When I just try the token without the id suffix: {!R12322234.testField}, it gives me just the text value. What is the best/quickest way of getting the ID in this scenario? For some reason the tokens don't work the same way in a popup.jsp page in comparison to a main.jsp page. Any suggestions on how I can achieve what I want?

Is testField  a Lookup field?

Is this on the "eap.rollbase.com" site?

Hello Karthikeyan,

No it is not a lookup field. Its a record name's "Related Field". This isn't on eap.rollbase.com, I've mentioned it in my title that its on version

Hello Iram,

Can you share an example of this usage (a screenshot will be good.) ?
Can you check if this repeatable on the EAP (since you already have a test case)?

Thank you.

So basically I have a related field called "Trading Currency" (screenshot attached). The code that I am using to retrieve the ID is given below. Let me know if you have any more questions.


alert("{!R551091.tradingCurrency}"); // returns the name of the record

alert("{!R551091.tradingCurrency#id}"); // returns '[J@7ec9d6b2' in popup.jsp pages
