Reference Object for Nav button

We need to dynamically pass the SAPMM Equivalent to a url in a new toolbar button.
I found in the Navigation manual the example for referencing active objects:
Referencing the Active Object
Some out of the box JavaScript functions are available so you can pull the active object’s identity information. These can be used to directly attach to a URL or even to supplement code extensions. For example, you can grab the object’s pkid and use it inside custom code to pull additional data from the specification

GetObjectHeader_ObjectPKID()      Pulls the active object’s pkid
GetObjectHeader_ObjectTitle()      Pulls the active object’s title. This can be up to 256 characters.
GetObjectHeader_ObjectType()      Pulls the active object’s type and returns it in number format. For example 1004 is a material specification

Example 1: Opening a popup window and appending the pkid to a URL
<MenuItem ID="lblNewMenuItem" DisplayText="NavB" TranslationRef="ApplicationMenu"
ClientSideCommand="'${dc:GSM}/getspec.aspx?SpecID=' + GetObjectHeader_ObjectPKID(), 'mywindow','height=350,width=400,status=no,toolbar=no,menubar=no,location=no,dependent=yes,scrollbars=yes');"/>

I have created a new toolbar button in GSM for Trade Specs using the Navigation extensions in SiteMap-Extensions.xml as follows:

<MenuItem ID="GSMNavSpec" configChildKey="ID">
     <MenuItem MenuType="icon" ID="lblPrintView" DisplayText="PrintView" SecurityProfileRef="" Visible="eval:${ObjectType}==2147" ClientSideCommand="'*005120-0928'*,'PrintView','height=350,width=400,status=no,toolbar=no,menubar=no,location=no,dependent=yes,scrollbars=yes');" />

Can you please tell us how to reference the SAPMM Equivalent?
