crmsvcutil.exe generates UnknownLabel OptionSets RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    crmsvcutil.exe generates UnknownLabel OptionSets if the language in crm is not english per default. It´s german.

    Can I enable support other languages in crmsvcutil.exe or enter the label for en-EN and de-DE when I create the OptionSet elements ?

    Kind Regards

  • Hi Markus,

    Technically, you can. But there's no supported option. You must customize the generate code yourself.

    Here's the way:

    1. Go to your GeneratePicklistEnums project in SDK (\sdk\samplecode\cs\crmsvcutilextensions\generatepicklistenums)

    2. Open your project --> NamingService.cs file.

    3. Modify following method to get your DE language, not EN language.

    public String GetNameForAttribute(
                EntityMetadata entityMetadata, AttributeMetadata attributeMetadata,
                IServiceProvider services)
                return DefaultNamingService.GetNameForAttribute(
                    entityMetadata, attributeMetadata, services);
            public String GetNameForEntity(
                EntityMetadata entityMetadata, IServiceProvider services)
                return DefaultNamingService.GetNameForEntity(entityMetadata, services);
            public String GetNameForEntitySet(
                EntityMetadata entityMetadata, IServiceProvider services)
                return DefaultNamingService.GetNameForEntitySet(entityMetadata, services);
            public String GetNameForMessagePair(
                SdkMessagePair messagePair, IServiceProvider services)
                return DefaultNamingService.GetNameForMessagePair(messagePair, services);
            /// <summary>
            /// Handles building the name for an Option of an OptionSet.
            /// </summary>
            public string GetNameForOption(OptionSetMetadataBase optionSetMetadata,
                OptionMetadata optionMetadata, IServiceProvider services)
                var name = DefaultNamingService.GetNameForOption(optionSetMetadata,
                    optionMetadata, services);
                Trace.TraceInformation(String.Format("The name of this option is {0}",
                name = EnsureValidIdentifier(name);
                name = EnsureUniqueOptionName(optionSetMetadata, name);
                return name;

    How to implement thoes methods? Use a decompiler and check how DefaultNamingService does and implemented it by yourself.

    Hope it helps.
