  • To do this you'll need to retrieve an instance of the savedquery (if it's a system view), or userquery (if it's a personal view). The easiest way to do this is via a QueryExpression, with a condition expression on the name, and the returnedtypecode of the view.

    The attributes displayed in the view will be within the Xml in one or more of the FetchXml, LayoutXml or ColumnSetXml attributes. Unfortunately, not all views have data in each of these attributes, so you may have to check them in turn
