Dynamics Crm 2015 Update - Plugins Error Casting to DateTime RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi There, 

    i had created a plugin, in this plugin it will retrieve multiple records from another entity, and do some calculations, what i want is when i create a new record i have to specify a date from and a date to, the retrieve multiple will retrieve record created on between date from and date to, the problem i have is there is an error when i cast a date attribute to DateTime,

    Currently i'm using an CRM nuget package version, which means there is no CRMDateTime or anything similar. 

    DateTime DateFrom = (DateTime)currentRecord["publisher_datefrom"]; //Casting Error
    DateTime DateTo = (DateTime)currentRecord["publisher_dateto"]; //Casting Error
    DateTime CreatedOn = (DateTime)currentRecord["createdon"]; //Casting Error

    another case i'm facing a problem in the Visual Studio, when i debug and track my code i'm using w3wp.exe process for debugging, the break points will appear white and have a warning symbol, if i navigate to debug from the ribbon and then window then modules, non of the modules and symbols is loaded, it appears either "Skipped loading symbol" or "cannot load symbol".

    any help would be appreciated.

    Kind Regards

  • Hi

    I suggest checking if the attribute is contained in the record.

  • Hi,

    I agree with F.Kuyler, and would like to add that if you get a casting error, what error do you get?

  • You can use tracing instead of debugging:-
