Bookmarklet tool for revealing internal field names
I was already describing the way to get SharePoint List Column’s internal name. Now I’ve prepared a simple tool that you can embed in your browser for an even faster insight.
How to "install" the bookmarklet?
2. Under Bookmarklets you will find a link. Drag it to your browser’s favorites bar or favorites.
How to use the script:
1. Open SharePoint List settings page. In this example we’ll open a Contacts list’s settings. Pay attention to the "Columns" table
2. Click the link you’ve added to your bookmarks:
3. See your Columns table again
This just temporarily modifies the page. The column will disappear with the next page refresh. But meanwhile you can even copy-paste.
I’ve tested it with IE 9, FireFox and Chrome.
