CRM 4.0 Maps Integration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,
    After following a very helpfull blog I was able to make an IFRAME which could put a push pin on a VE Map at the location of an Account address.  This is nice looking... but useless for me.

    I want to put a map on a custom work order entity.  The workorder is always linked to an account with an address.  The hard part is find the closest Contractor, which is also a custom entity which contains an address.  I am not sure how to:

    A) Access the address of the linked Account
    B) Loop through the contractors to find their locations and plot them.



    Thanks,
    Jay

  • Hi, Jay.

    To access the address you have to retrieve account id and create s SOAP request to retrieve information from Web Service on customeraddress entity.

    To retrieve Contractors you can build RetrieveMultiple request or Fetch .

    For better understanding I suggest you to look web-site about web-development (JavaScript, HTML, DOM, e.t.c.).

  • Thank you, that is very helpfull.

    I am somewhat capable of scripting, at least in Java script.  I have limited web development history, but extensive Java exprience, so hopefully that, combined with the web site and hints you provided can help me.
