I read here that we can access ObjectType from Global Variable.I want to check if the user able to edit Account using updateable .But how to write it?

I tried this

    console.log('@Test  ==='+{!$ObjectType.Account.updateable});

It throw me this error.

Error: Field updateable does not exist. Check spelling.

So I copy paste this just to test


Also it throw me error.

Error: Field Account.fields.Name.Label does not exist. Check spelling.

What is the correct way to use Global Variable in Javascript?

  • Lightning, Visualforce, static resource?

To know whether user can edit the record you can Query UserRecordAccess object. You will get all the details as below.


var result = sforce.connection.query("SELECT RecordId, HasReadAccess, HasEditAccess, HasDeleteAccess FROM UserRecordAccess WHERE UserId = '{!$User.Id}' AND RecordId = '{!Account.Id}'", {onSuccess : success, onFailure : failure});
function success(result) {
    var records = result.getArray("records");
        var accessdetail = records[0];
        console.log("HasDeleteAccess = "+accessdetail.HasDeleteAccess);
        console.log("HasEditAccess = "+accessdetail.HasEditAccess);
        console.log("HasReadAccess = " + accessdetail.HasReadAccess);
function failure(error) {
    console.log("An error has occurred " + error);
  • can we use Global variable instead of query?
