Cannot call web service from client. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Again CRM Gurus,

    Last week I asked how to call a DLL from javascript and it waqs suggested that I use AJAX to call the server side code.

    I created a web service and call it from a script in the CRM web client. Everything works fine when I use the CRM web client on the server. This is the server that runs both CRM and my new web service.

    When I use the CRM web client on a workstation, the script is not able to call the web service. I see an Object Required error .

    I created a web page on the server and pasted the javascript into this page. Again, the service is called when I use the browser on the server, but not on the workstation browser.

    I can, however, call the service from an aspx page running in the workstation browser.

    In short, I cannot call the web service from a script on the workstation. I can call the web service any way except from a script running on the workstation. 

    Thanks in anticipation.

  • Thanks Nishant,

    That did the trick.

    Your blog is also very informative. I've bookmarked it.

    Another problem is that Javascript running from a CRM page does not give you any good error messages. Even if the web service fails, the javascript just says object expected, or something like that.

    Thanks again.
