CRM 3.0 Call out - Autonumber RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    We are using CRM 3.0/SQL 2005 and would like to achieve following functionality.

    When lead is created, custom callout should generate autostring in format of dd/mm/yy/time. for example '25/11/09 - 11:30:45'. ( this way it's unique to each lead)
    this value will be assign to custom attribute each time lead is created.

    Can someone please provide a sample code or a direction to achieve this.

    Also, would like to know whether we can create this call out using studio 2005 with .NET 2.0 an above as i found on few blogs that crm 3.o callouts
    only support VS 2003 with .NET 1.1

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi,

    Yes you could create a PreCreate callout that would assign the value to the lead record.

    You could refer this wonderful article !

    For callout you need to use VS 2003.

  • Hi Nishant,

    Thanks for this info.

    Would you please advise me on how many references I have to make to my project
    and where can i find those dlls as CRM 3.0 SDK folder doesn't have necessary dlls to start with.

    Or am i missing something very basic ??Sorry this is the first time writing CRM 3.0 call out.

    I have already added web refrence to CRM service by including servername/mscrmservice/2006/service.asmx with name CrmSdk
    but couldn't find reference to calloutbase class.
