How to check from which entity the create form is loaded in MS CRM 2015? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Can anyone please help me to achieve the below requirement?

    I need to validate the create form of an entity checking from where the form is loaded.

    For example:

    I need to validate the appointment create form with some business validations(on-load) only if it is created from Contact entity grid. If it is created from any other parent entity or menu list, I should not do any validations on the create form.

    How can I check from where the Create form is loaded?

  • inside your onload event you need to check if the form is create and the regarding is a contact

    function OnLoad() {

    if (Xrm.Page.ui.getFormType() ==1 && Xrm.Page.getAttribute("regardingobjectid").getValue() != null && Xrm.Page.getAttribute("regardingobjectid").getValue()[0].entityType =="contact") {

    // your code here

  • Hi Gudio,

    Thanks for the reply.

    The above code is fine but I was not referring only to only appointment-contact, its just I quoted an example.

    I have 3 entities

    Entity1 - Parent

    Entity2 - child of Entity1

    Entity3 - child of Entity1 & 2

    I can create Entity3 from Entity1 or Entity2. Here, I wanted validate from which entity the record (Entity3) is loaded?

    I cannot use regarding lookup as I will be getting the lookup values of both Entity1 and Entity2 using mappings. So, I want some other way where I could figure out from which entity the form has been loaded and perform the validations accordingly.
