Ability to mimic the View/Edit link via SuiteScript

Customer have a custom record that contains sublist created via script. He would like to make one of the field
in the sublist as link that when clicked it will redirect to another record.

Unable to set the field created by addField method as link because inlinehtml is not available as field type.

In order to redirect to another record the possible solution would be emulating the View/Edit links via SuiteScript

Below is the sample code that will create a tab and a sublist that will contain customer record. Using
"url" field type on the addField method to create a link to the custom record and setLinkText to sets the text to be display
on the URL field.

This will be deployed on Before Load User Event Script in a Custom Record

function tabsToCustomRecord(type, form)
var sampleTab = form.addTab('custpage_sample_tab', 'Sample Tab');
var contacts = form.addSubList('custpage_contacts', 'editor', 'Custom Contacts','custpage_sample_tab');

contacts.addField('view', 'url', 'View', null).setLinkText('View');
contacts.addField('edit', 'url', 'Edit', null).setLinkText('Edit');
var entity = contacts.addField('custpage_entityid', 'text', 'Name');
var email = contacts.addField('custpage_email', 'email', 'Email');

var columns = new Array();
columns[0] = new nlobjSearchColumn('companyname');
columns[1] = new nlobjSearchColumn('email');
columns[2] = new nlobjSearchColumn('internalid');

// reference a Customer saved search
var searchresults = nlapiSearchRecord('customer',643, null, columns);
nlapiLogExecution('DEBUG','DEBUG',searchresults );
var netsuiteSiteUrl = '';
for ( var i = 1; searchresults != null && i < searchresults.length; i++ )

var viewUrl = netsuiteSiteUrl + nlapiResolveURL ('RECORD', 'customer', searchresults[i].getId(), 'VIEW');
var editUrl = netsuiteSiteUrl + nlapiResolveURL ('RECORD', 'customer', searchresults[i].getId(), 'EDIT');
contacts.setLineItemValue('view', i, viewUrl);
contacts.setLineItemValue('edit', i, editUrl);
