Posted by Jean-Philippe Tremblay - Dec 9 ’16 at 08:41


First Question :


My Sharepoint store a long URL into a column and i need to use it in HTML for embedded content and picture callaing.

I was planning to use the following code. As soon as i use it, i got display error such loosing tabs. Any idea how i can achieve that?


use import javaQuery.j2ee.tinyURL;

public static void main(String[] args) {

tinyURL tU = new tinyURL();

String getLink tU.getTinyURL(fd.field('LongURL_InternalName').value() );

fd.field('LongURL_InternalName').value() = getLink



//Assign @LongURL_InternalName in HTML Content for URL


Second question:

Thanks again for your Help

    1. You can try the following jQuery plug-in to shorten a URL from JavaScript:


    2. Use the code below to get current URL from the browser and put into a field:

    var currentURL = window.location.href; // getting URL
    fd.field('FieldName').value(currentUrl); // putting into a field

    I need to get the Display URL and store it.

    In javascipt, i used :

    var currentURL = window.location.href; // getting URL





    var QRCodeLinkGoogleLink = "https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?chs=150x150&cht=qr&chl="

    var QRcodeConcatenate = QRCodeLinkGoogleLink.concat(currentURL)

    but i retrieve a blank field for FormURL. I Guess it beause the field is read-only? I have a HTML Block who use it to generate QR Code

    <img src="{@QRcodeURL}" alt="QR Code" style="width:304px;height:228px;">


    Is it possible to get the display URL during the New Form so i can store it? Or any Idea?

    [#2]: Hi,

    You cannot get URL of a display form until you save the item bacause its ID is populated after saving only.
