Object names for Nav bar RRS feed

  • Question

  • From another Question I was given the solution of:

    var _ContactsNavItem = document.getElementById('navContacts').parentNode;

    var _RelationshipNavItem = document.getElementById('navRelationships').parentNode;

    _RelationshipNavItem.insertBefore(_ContactsNavItem);

    to change the order displayed in the left nav of the account form.  It works great.  But I am trying to change it to move one of my custom entities (new_customentity) above an out of the box one (sub-Companies), but I don't know what to call them to do this (example: the Contacts is called navContacts here).  Where do I find this information?  I've tried guessing but keep getting an error.

    Thanks!

  • Hi,

    you can use Developertool to find out name of left navigation item.

    1. Open your entity form and press F11

    2. Copy URL and open in new IE tab.

    3. Start Developers tool from internet setting

    4. Enable "Select Item by Click" under Find menu and click on left navigation item, it will show name in "Attributes" tab.
