I made this Javascript change in this new project and hard coded a value. I didnt know this JS code is used for other sections as well. So, now this hardcoded value is NULL for another page...

How can either not hard code this OR do a check for a null?

-- you see that "ctl00_Body_grdOrderItems".... for another page, that value is "ctl00_Body_grdAllOrders" ... so this hardcoded value wont do it...
function EditSelectedObject (sender, eventArgs) 
    var masterTable = $find("ctl00_Body_grdOrderItems").get_masterTableView();
