Use Fetch Xml for query in Plug-in

By xrmlabs webmaster on 3/26/2013

Fetch XML is a really handy way of retrieving data from CRM. It is easy to construct complex query and really simple to execute. In this blog article I will explain how you can execute fetch XML query in Dynamic CRM 2011 or CRM online. To start you will first need to download a fetch xml from advanced find and then use the RetrieveMultiple method of the CRM Service to execute the Fetch XML.

First go to Advanced d find and select the entity on which you need to make query





Following is the fetchxml retrieve from Advance Find:

String fetchXml = @"'1.0'?>
'false' mapping='logical' output-format='xml-platform' version='1.0'>
   'contact'>
          'telephone'/>
          'lastname'/> 'firstname'/>
                                  'contactid'/> 'false' attribute='telephone'/>                                 'and'>
                                     'vdbwc1_vip' value='1' operator='eq'/>
                  
  
 ";

All now that is left is to send a fetch request. This can simply be done by using the following code.

EntityCollection EC = _service.RetrieveMultiple(new FetchExpression(fetchXml));
 
if (EC != null && EC.Entities != null && EC.Entities.Count >= 1)
{
     foreach (Entity E in EC.Entities)
     {
         Guid entityId = E.Id;
     }
}


Above code shows how RetrieveMultiple method is used to retrieve EntityCollection from fetchxml.
Hope this helps. Happy Coding !!

SQL Server string to date / datetime conversion: 



 String date conversion (Without century (yy)): convert string to datetime

  Day (Mon) types are nondeterministic conversions:
