How to get the field's ID

when we modify a customized application, we can see the field id in the html page

such as "https://ap1.salesforce.com/00N90000002m2KA?setupid=CustomObjects"

but my question is how to get such id "00N90000002m2KA" from API level by field name?

 

because the http POST request only have such keyword,I want to know what field is it

 

Thanks

Yes, you'd have to do "screen scraping" or HTML parsing. There's no API for determining the internal field ID.

Not sure if I understand your question correctly but hoping this helps else ignore.

What I think is you are looking for an automated process of getting the ID of a field...... But the posts are pointing towards standard object and fields.. 

 

You need it for custom object and/or custom fields.....

yes,so could you tell me what is your solution?

I need an automated method (means API can work) to get custom fields' id

 

current solution , I need write a program to parse the html page?
