Using the currentRecord Module in Client Scripts

You can use the currentRecord module to access the record that is active in the current client context. For more information about the currentRecord module, see N/currentRecord Module.

The following sample executes when the saveRecord entry point is triggered. The script uses the currentRecord module to validate a Sales Order record and ensures that the transaction date is not older than one week, and that the total is valid.

 * @NApiVersion 2.x 
 * @NScriptType ClientScript
define(['N/ui/message'],function(msg) {
    function showErrorMessage(msgText) {
        var myMsg = msg.create({
            title: "Cannot Save Record",
            message: msgText,
            type: msg.Type.ERROR
             duration: 5000

    function saveRec(context) {
        var rec = context.currentRecord;
        var currentDate = new Date()
        var oneWeekAgo = new Date(currentDate - 1000 * 60 * 60 * 24 * 7);

        // Validate transaction date is not older than current time by one week
        if (rec.getValue({fieldId: 'trandate'}) < oneWeekAgo) {
            showErrorMessage("Cannot save sales order with trandate one week old.");
            return false;

        // Validate total is greater than 0
        if (rec.getValue({fieldId: 'total'}) <= 0) {
            showErrorMessage("Cannot save sales order with negative total amount.");
            return false;
        return true;

    return {
        saveRecord: saveRec
