Service Catalog: change a catalog variable label part 2: service portal friendly version!

Ok, so here's a quick and easy solution, that will work in both standard service catalog AND service portal view (a neater solution could be coded that checks if 'I am in Service Portal' based on the url parameters for example, but below seems to do the trick):

function onLoad() {
    //shared functions for form load
    //--this bit doesn't work in service portal!
    var newLabelText='Select site';
        var labelElement = $('label_' + g_form.getControl('requested_for').id);'.sn-tooltip-basic').each(function(elmt) {
            elmt.innerHTML = newLabelText;
    }catch (err){
        //--will drop down to here in service portal, just allow the code to continue...
    //--this bit doesn't work in standard servicenow!
    if (g_form.getLabelOf('requested_for')=='Requested for'){
        g_form.setLabelOf('requested_for',newLabelText); //--service portal friendly

GlideRecord setValue

setValue(String name, Object value) Sets the specified field to the specified value. Normally a script would do a direct assignment, for example,  gr.category = value . However, if in a script the element name is a variable, then  gr.setValue(elementName, value)  can be used. When setting a value, ensure the data type of the field matches the data type of the value you enter. This method cannot be used on journal fields. If the value parameter is null, the record is not updated, and an error is not thrown!/api_doc?v=madrid&id=r_GlideRecord-setValue_String_Object
