Setting option set value to null programmatically? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to un-set an optionset value using C# for Dynamics CRM 2011. In other words, I'd like to set it to null. How can this be accomplished?

  • How about: 
    //Early bound
    Account a = (Account)_serviceProxy.Retrieve(Account.EntityLogicalName,
    	new Guid("DCC721C7-FDB0-E311-9429-6C3BE5A8FDB8"), new ColumnSet(true));
    a.CustomerTypeCode = null;
    //Late bound
    Entity a2 = _serviceProxy.Retrieve("account",
    	new Guid("DCC721C7-FDB0-E311-9429-6C3BE5A8FDB8"), new ColumnSet(true));
    a2["customertypecode"] = null;

  • Thanks, Jason. Sorry for the delay getting back to you. I will try that but the reason why I asked is because I thought there was some complication to just setting it to null.
