unable to get Opportunity record url into java-script

Hi All,
i am trying to create new button(custom survice item) with javascript to autopopulate record type when create child record . so all the work has done and place the button on parent related list layout and its works when click button on view page related list . but have a issue when click on related list summary ( top of the record )

getting url code in java script is 
{!REQUIRESCRIPT("/soap/ajax/30.0/connection.js")}
{!REQUIRESCRIPT("/soap/ajax/30.0/apex.js")}
var refurl = window.location.href;

i am placing alert as part of debugging , when i click on related list on detail page, refurl stores correct page url , which is expected (https://cs17.salesforce.com/006g0000004UHMh)

Hmm. You wre trying to access an object as a string. Anyways Use following code, it should work:

{!REQUIRESCRIPT("/soap/ajax/30.0/connection.js")}
{!REQUIRESCRIPT("/soap/ajax/30.0/apex.js")}
alert("hiiiiiiii111111");
var refurl = window.location.href;
if (refurl.indexOf("emptyHtmlDoc") > -1) {
   refurl = window.parent.location.href;
}
alert(refurl);
var stpos = refurl.lastIndexOf("/")+1;
alert(stpos);
var endpos = refurl.length;
alert(endpos);
 
var strOppId = refurl.substring(stpos,endpos);
alert(strOppId);
Appreciate if you mark it as Best Answer if it solves your problem :)

Hi Kondal,

The related list you see in the quick navigation menu renders in an iframe which is the reason why you see different ref url.

You can add a small check in your javascript code for this and get the parent url in both cases as below:


var refurl = window.location.href;
if (refurl.indexOf("emptyHtmlDoc") > -1) {
   refurl = window.parent.location;
}
alert(refurl);

Let me know if you need any other help.
