Add a tooltip to aid in user navigation!
Have you ever wanted to know exactly how a button on a NetSuite record is going to behave?
One day a client requested to know how a button functioned, because they have some buttons that send a customer-facing email to an internal user so that it can be reviewed before it actually goes to the customer, but another button that sends an email directly to the customer. Which does which? If only you could have a tooltip available when you hover over the button in question. Well now you can!
I presented this use case to one of our consultants, David G, and he produced a simple yet powerful User Event script that accomplishes this ask.
In order to make this work, first you need to identify the ID of the button. This seems tricky but is really straightforward. In your web browser, right-click on the button in question and select “Inspect” or “Inspect Element”.
Then, a right-hand pane should appear that will give you information about the page. Look for the button value and the id will be after it:
Now armed with the button ID, go to the script deployment and edit the parameters section:
And now return to the record and view the results:
