      Hi Alex and all,

      I’m new to SPJS and need to implement exact solution for my site to display another list columns.

      I understand that I need 2 .js files;

      However, I also need to modify the init_fields()_v2 function in order for the demo code to work with my custom form site.
      Refer to

      Here is what I did
      1)I have replaced this function in my spjs-utility.js.

      function init_fields_v2(){
      var res = {};
      var thisID =;
      res[thisID] = $(this).parents(‘tr:first’);
      return res;

      2) I added custom Id to the ‘s formlabel which I only insert 1 place in my create new form.
      <td width=”190px” valign=”top” class=”ms-formlabel” id=”StatusCustomID”>

      3) I added the following to the CEWP in custom form site:

      fields = init_fields_v2();
      var myCompanyField = $(fields[‘StatusCustomID’]);

      I follow the rest of steps as arrFinAndDispName function.

      alert(myTitleField.html()) shows “undefined”
      Nothing display on my new form.

      Did I do anything wrong?
      Thank you so much

      I think you have mixed up the variables – you assign the value to “myCompanyField” but alerts “myTitleField”. Try alerting “” instead.

      If this don’t work, you can try using the developer console (hit F12 > Console) and type this in the console to see if the fields object contains your fields:


      Hit enter and look at the output.

      Thank you so much Alex.

      I had fixed the code and the alert shows [object object]. Is it supposed to show this?

      Besides this, are my above steps correct? especially editing init_fields_V2() in spjs-unitilty.js while leaving the init_fields() function in the file?

      Thank you so much

      Sorry for the late reply. The alert [object object] means it is an object type an not a string. You can use console.log(PUT_VARIABLE_HERE) to see what the variable contains. Please note that you must have the developer console open (hit F12 > Console) to see the output.
