<script type="text/javascript"> 
(function() { 
pega.util.Event.onDOMReady(function() { 
ddTarget = new pega.util.DDTarget("<%= uniqueProp %>"); 
if($){ 
var $elRef = $( 
"strong#" 
+"<%= uniqueProp %>" 
); 
$elRef.closest("td").attr({ 
"aria-label" : $elRef.attr("data-name"), 
"role" : "row" 
}); 

}); 
})(); 
</script>


Note: If the baseline section uses <span> element instead of <strong>, then modify the script above for the following:

var $elRef = $( 
"strong#" 


to

var $elRef = $( 
"span#"
