g_form is used very heavily all over in ServiceNow.
As such it has a lot of documented and undocumented functions.

    g_form.showRelatedLists();
  }
}

isLiveUpdating

isMandatory

Returns true while a live update is being done on the record the form is showing.

This can be used in an onChange() client script to determine if a change to the record is because of a live update from another session. The client script can then decide what action to take, or not to take. This applies to systems using UI16 with live forms enabled.

  g_form.isLiveUpdating();

isNewRecord

Returns true if the record has never been saved Returns false if the record has been saved

g_form.isNewRecord();

isSectionVisible

Returns true if the section is visible Returns false if the section is not visible or does not exist. This method is available starting with the Fuji release

g_form.save();

setDisabled

Grays out field and makes it unavailable

  var bool = true;
  g_form.setDisabled('caller_id', true);

setDisplay

Displays the field if true. Hides the field if false. This method cannot hide mandatory fields with no value. If the field is hidden, the space is used to display other items

  var bool = true;
  g_form.setDisplay('caller_id', true);

setLabelOf

Sets the plain text value of the field label. This method is available starting with the Fuji release

if (g_user.hasRole('itil')) {
  var oldLabel = g_form.getLabelOf('comments');
  g_form.setLabelOf('comments', oldLabel + ' (Customer visible)');
}

setMandatory

Makes the field required if true. Makes the field optional if false. Best Practice: Use UI Policy rather than this method whenever possible

g_form.setMandatory('quantity',true);// changes field to required or not

setReadOnly

Makes the field read-only if true Makes the field editable if false. Note: Both setReadOnly and setReadonly are functional. Best Practice: Use UI Policy rather than this method whenever possible

g_form.setValue('milestone', milestone);
g_form.setReadonly('end_date', milestone);
g_form.setReadonly('duration', milestone);

setSectionDisplay

Shows or hides a section Works in both tab and flat modes. This method is available starting with the Fuji release

function onChange(control, oldValue, newValue, isLoading) {
   //this example was run on a form divided into sections (Change form)
   // and hid a section when the "state" field was changed
   var sections = g_form.getSections();
   if (newValue == '2') {
      g_form.setSectionDisplay(sections[1], false);
   } else {
      g_form.setSectionDisplay(sections[1], true);
   }
}

setValue

Sets the value and the display value of a field Will display value if there is no displayValue

g_form.setValue('quantity','10');// sets the value to 10

setVisible

Displays the field if true. Hides the field if false. If the field is hidden, the space is left blank. This method cannot hide mandatory fields with no value

function onLoad() {
  g_form.setVisible('u_environment', false);
}

showErrorBox

Displays an error message under the specified form field (either a control object or the name of the field). If the control or field is currently scrolled off the screen, it will be scrolled to. A global property (glide.ui.scroll_to_message_field) is available that controls automatic message scrolling when the form field is offscreen (scrolls the form to the control or field). The showFieldMsg() method is a similar method that requires a ‘type’ parameter

var scroll = true;
g_form.showErrorBox('caller_id','message',scroll)

showFieldMsg

Displays either an informational or error message under the specified form field (either a control object or the name of the field). Type may be either ‘info’ or ‘error.’ If the control or field is currently scrolled off the screen, it will be scrolled to. A global property (glide.ui.scroll_to_message_field) is available that controls automatic message scrolling when the form field is offscreen (scrolls the form to the control or field)

 // parameters are;
 // field, string, info||error, scrollToField
 g_form.showFieldMsg('stage', 'text info', 'info', false);
 g_form.showFieldMsg('stage', 'text erro', 'error', false);

showRelatedList

Displays the specified related list on the form

function onChange(control, oldValue, newValue, isLoading, isTemplate) {
  if (isLoading || newValue === '') {
    return;
  }
  if(newValue == 'hide'){
    g_form.hideRelatedList('sc_request');
  } else if(newValue == 'show') {
    g_form.showRelatedList('sc_request');
  } else if(newValue == 'hide all'){
    g_form.hideRelatedLists();
  } else if(newValue == 'show all'){
    g_form.showRelatedLists();
  }
}

showRelatedLists

Displays all related lists on the form

function onChange(control, oldValue, newValue, isLoading, isTemplate) {
  if (isLoading || newValue === '') {
    return;
  }
  if(newValue == 'hide'){
    g_form.hideRelatedList('sc_request');
  } else if(newValue == 'show') {
    g_form.showRelatedList('sc_request');
  } else if(newValue == 'hide all'){
    g_form.hideRelatedLists();
  } else if(newValue == 'show all'){
    g_form.showRelatedLists();
  }
}

 g_form.getDisplayBox('caller_id').value; // returns html element attribute value

getDisplayValue

 g_form.getDisplayValue();//returns record displayvalue, not field displayvalue
 g_form.getDispalyValue('caller_id');//returns record displayvalue, not field displayvalue

getEditableFields

If the form is read only, just return.

var editableFields = g_form.getEditableFields();
if (editableFields.indexOf("report_title") < 0) {
  console.log('editable fields contains report_title');
}

getGlideUIElement

 var serverURLElement = g_form.getGlideUIElement('server_url');

getLabel

var label = g_form.getLabel('comments') + ' (' + getMessage('Customer visible') + ')';
g_form.setLabel('comments', label);

getMissingFields

 g_form.getMissingFields();

getOptionControl

We can access the option control to get the name of the operation.

var optionControl = g_form.getOptionControl('operation');
var operationText;
if (optionControl) {
  var option = g_form.getOption('operation', g_form.getOptionControl('operation').value);
  operationText = option.text;
}

This seems to be referenced by an error when using g_form.submit() from a catalog in a catalog client script.

var tblName = g_form.getTableName();
var fromRelList = g_form.getParameter('sysparm_from_related_list');
var _module = g_form.getParameter('sysparm_userpref_module');
var listQuery = g_form.getParameter('sysparm_record_list');
var stackName = g_form.getParameter('sysparm_nameofstack');
var gotoUrl = g_form.getParameter('sysparm_goto_url');
var deleteUrl = g_form.getParameter('sysparm_referring_url');
var returnUrl = deleteUrl ? deleteUrl : returnUrl;
