  • Hi Sohail,

    Thanq for u r reply.

    I have tried with this also. But this is for setting defaultview.

    I want to set default type(means account or contact like that).

  • you must use both lines...

    Please check the following code.

    document.getElementById("regardingobjectid").setAttribute("defaulttype", "2"); Xrm.Page.getControl("regardingobjectid").setDefaultView("a2d479c5-53e3-4c69-addd-802327e67a0d");

    The first line sets the default entity type to Contact for the Customer Lookup dialog.

    The second line sets the Customer Lookup dialog’s view to the ‘Contacts Lookup View’ using its guid value. If you do not use this line of code it will default to the ‘My Active Contacts View’ or whatever you have selected as the default Contact view.
