Custom Functions - Generate GUID and NULL Return

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
I had a could things I needed for a project that weren't standard in the functions list. I googled around and snagged some java script code that works just fine and made a custom function that I reuse across many of my projects. Here is a quick tutorial and example of code.


1. Create a new custom function.


2. Give the custom function a name. There is no input parameter required


3. Enter the code as shown below, which will return a valid guid to any string variable.



var s = [], itoh = '0123456789ABCDEF';

  for (var i = 0; i <36; i++) s[i] = Math.floor(Math.random()*0x10);

  s[14] = 4;
  s[19] = (s[19] & 0x3) | 0x8;

  for (var i = 0; i <36; i++) s[i] = itoh[s[i]];

  s[8] = s[13] = s[18] = s[23] = '-';

  return s.join('');
