SuiteScript 2.1 Get Text from Dropdown list selection

edited Jul 26, 2022 8:54PM in Ask A Guru 4 comments

This seems like it should be a very basic operation, but I've been struggling for a few hours now and I can't find any examples anywhere.

The API says to use the N/record or N/currentRecord/getText() function and a few other websites claim that works too, but this function only returns an error for me.

The situation is I am adding a Customer record to NetSuite and then my SuiteScript is sending information from that record via a web service request to another system. I need to send the text values, not the internal ids.

I can use currentRecord.getValue({fieldId:'salesrep'}); and it will return the internal id of the list value, but I cannot seem to find out how to get the actual text value associated with that selection.


Howdy, Stranger!
