Custom compare date validator

By xrmlabs webmaster on 11/1/2013

Sometimes we need to compare two dates as start date and end date where we need that end date must be greater than start date . If we use date format in mm/dd/yyyy then compare validator works well but if we use date picker using jquery or the date in dd/mm/yyyy format by any other way then compare validator does not work because it recognizes only dd/mm/yyyy format. To over come this problem a custom date compare validator should be used. Following is a simple application where a custom compare validator has been used .


How to retrieve more than 50 records through OData in CRM 2011?

By xrmlabs webmaster on 11/1/2013

If you are using OData end points to retrieve records in MS CRM 2011 then you might be surprised to know that the maximum number of records that can be retrieved in a single retrieve call is 50. This is because the page size is fixed to Max 50 records. When working with large set of data we were faced with a similar problem. Thankfully MS CRM Odata has a next link which can be used to retrieve next 50 records. The following example shows how to retrieve more than 50 records using Odata end point. In this example we push the first 50 records in an array and retrieve next page results using the URL (quot;__nextquot;) provided in the JSON response object. Note we are using Jquery and JSON2 in the following example. We presume you have already added JQuery and JSON to your Form. To know more about how to add jquery please follow this blog entry (How to add JQuery support to CRM-2011) The javascript code is such as follows. var relatedContact = []; function onloadFetchAllC ...

By xrmlabs webmaster on 10/31/2013

Of late I face a problem where I had to execute an asynchronous process from a plugin. I was faced with multiple option like using asynchronous plugin or a workflow etc . After careful investigation of both the alternatives I came to the conclusion that my business process is much suited for a workflow rather than an asynchronous plugin.  Now the only real challenge was to call a workflow from a plugin code. After a bit of investigation of SDK I can across the following sdk ExecuteWorkflowRequest Class. This class allows you to execute on demand workflow using plugin. Now let try out some code C# ExecuteWorkflowRequest ewfr = new ExecuteWorkflowRequest(); //each workflow has its own unique GUID. This GUID can be used to specify which workflow needs to be executed ewfr.WorkflowId = new Guid("A68490BF-ABCD-1234-CDA1-1234567890AB"); // Replace the guid with your flow GUID   //Now all we need to do is specify the GUID of t ...
