Suitelets are server-side scripts that operate in a request-response model. What are the two types of suitelets? Front end and Back end suitelet. What are front end suitelets? Suitelets which are used for designing custom pages that look like standard Netsuite pages. It can be used for creating a form like page to enter user data, creating html page, assistant suitelet page or displaying results. Custom fields, tabs, sublists, buttons etc can be added to a front end suitelet page. How is a front end suitelet called? This can be achieved by invoking the suitelet url. Suitelet url can be called using from client script or by using nlapisetredirecturl api in the server side script. A suite

How To Trigger Field Change On Click Of Mark All Button?

The Field Change Event in client script triggers on change of values in any field in the UI. But when you change the field values using buttons like mark all or add multiple, the client script doesn't trigger. Netsuite suggests to write a user event script to do this validation. But there are many scenarios where the validation has to be performed in field changed function and it can't be replaced by User Event Function. We have designed an alternative method for this scenario: First use inspect element on the mark all button and get it's id. Let the id be 'markall' for this example. On the client page init, write the below code (change the internal id based on your record): document.getElementById("markall").onclick = function() {markall();}; function markall() { var count = nlapiGetLineItemCount('payment'); for(var i=1;i<=count;i++) {       nlapiSelectLineItem('payment', i);              nlapiSet


WHAT ARE USER EVENT SCRIPTS? User Event scripts are server side scripts which are executed when users perform certain actions on records, such as create, load, edit, copy, delete, submit,approve, reject, xedit, cancel etc. WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF USER EVENT SCRIPT? To validate field values, to add custom fields, buttons, hide existing buttons and fields, sending emails, restrict user actions etc. WHAT ARE THE USER EVENT SCRIPT FUNCTIONS? User Event Script has three functions or trigger points: Before Load – A Before Load event occurs when a user clicks Edit,View, Make Copy, Email, Print on an existing record, or clicks New to create a new record. Before Submit – Event occurs when a record is submitted, but before the changes are committed to the database. A Before Submit event occurs when a user clicks Save or Submit on a record. After Submit – event occurs after the changes to the record are committed to the database. An After Submit event occurs after a user cl


WHAT IS A CLIENT SCRIPT? Client scripts are SuiteScripts executed in the browser. Client script is used for validating values entered by user, populating values in fields, executing logic on click of custom button. Client script can be deployed on records or it can also be attached on forms. It can be also attached on a user event script or suitelet script. WHAT ARE THE CLIENT SCRIPT EVENT TYPES? Pageinit, Saverecord, Validate field, Field Change, Postsourcing, Lineinit Validate Line, Recalc, Validate Insert, Validate Delete. WHAT IS THE EXECUTION CONTEXT FOR CLIENT SCRIPT? Only UI. It doesn't work for records created or updated via csv, webservice or scripts. CAN CLIENT SCRIPT EXECUTE IN VIEW OR DELETE MODE? No. Client script executes only on create, copy and edit. To execute a script in any other mode, you must use a user event script. WHAT IS THE GOVERNANCE LIMIT FOR CLIENT SCRIPT? 1000 Units. WHAT CAN BE DONE IF GOVERNANCE LIMIT IN THE CODE EXCEEDS 100


While trying to delete any sublist row, the row with the highest line number must be deleted first. For eg: if there are 5 lines with line number 1,2,3,4 and 5. Suppose you want to delete 3rd and 5th line item. If you delete the 3rd row first using nlapiRemoveLineItem('item, 3), then there are only 4 lines remaining and using nlapiRemoveLineItem('item, 5) will throw error. So, the solution is to delete the 5th row first and then delete the 3rd row. See the example code below: var line_count = nlapiGetLineItemCount('item'); for(var k=line_count;k>=1;k--)// loop starting with last line { if(k==5||k==3) nlapiRemoveLineItem('item, k); } For Netsuite Training (Including training for interviews), Support, Implementation contact us at: Email : Facebook page :


Client script executes in the logged in user's role. This can create errors while trying to access records for which logged in user doesn't have required permission. The solution is to call a backend suitelet from the client script. I f you need to use that value in client script for setting values or giving alert, then you can return the value from suitelet back to client script. Eg: On field change of location field in sales order, you want to load the location record and get some values but if the logged in user doesn't have access to location record, then you should not load the location record from client script as it will throw error due to in-sufficient permission. You can use nlapirequesturl to call backend suitelet and from suitelet after searching the values, write it back using response.write(values) where values is any variable. See the code below for more detail: client script: var loc_id =  nlapiGetFieldValue('location');
