  • Hi Folks,

      Can we write a javascript to get the value of "createdon" field of the record, provided the field is not placed on the form?

  • Hi Ramesh,

    A simple solution is to add the field to form, make it read only and then hide it using Java script on 'OnLoad' event of Form. This way you use the field in your code and hide it at the same time. 

    Here is how you can hide a field in CRM 4.0:

    crmForm.all.createdon.style.display ="none";
    crmForm.all.createdon_c.style.display = "none";
    crmForm.all.createdon_d.style.display = "none";

    And here is how you can do the same in CRM 2011

  • Hi,

    You can retrieve the current record using Odata query. In such a case you will not have to put the field on form.
