  if (clientContext != undefined && clientContext != null) {
   var web = clientContext.get_web();
  this.contentTypeCollection = web.get_contentTypes();
  this.contentType = contentTypeCollection.getById("0x0100FFC434A461E47E4EB81D3FD76D42BFBF");
  clientContext.load(this.contentType);
  clientContext.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQuerySucceeded), Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQueryFailed));
  }
  }
 
  function onQuerySucceeded() {
  alert(this.contentType.get_name())
  }
 
  function onQueryFailed(sender, args) {
  alert('Request failed. ' + args.get_message() + '\n' + args.get_stackTrace());
  }</script>
  <input id="btnGetContentTypebyId" onclick="getContentTypebyId()" type="button" value="Get content type by Id" />
