In a PDP we can have a list and clicking on new we would like to save Project UID and Name into list’s item fields. In the following code snippet, ProjUid and Owning Project are two SharePoint List Fields and they are being set by following js code.

<script src="/PWA/SiteAssets/jquery-1.10.2.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script><script type="text/javascript">

$(document).ready(function() {

 var Puid = window.parent.PDP_projUid;
 var project_name = window.parent.PDP_projName; 
 var subjectIDTextField1 = getElementByTitle("input","ProjUid");
 subjectIDTextField1.value = Puid; 
 var subjectIDTextField= getElementByTitle("input","Owning Project");
 subjectIDTextField.value = project_name; 
//Disabling field
 $(":input[title='Owning Project']").attr('disabled','disabled');

//Hiding field
var HidePUID = getElementByTitle("input","ProjUid");

function getElementByTitle(tagName,elementTitle)
	var list = document.getElementsByTagName(tagName);
	var elementTag;
	for (i=0;i!=list.length;i++) {
	if (list[i].title == elementTitle) {
