merging plug-ins on same entity RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I need to write some code to do the following two things on SalesOrder entity

    1) On Creation(one time only) -  Do some maths and populate some custom attributes based upon information provided by user

    2) On Update( Every Save event) - Check if some certain fields being updated, update all the order items with those values.


    I have written a Plug-in  which triggers upon "Create" Message and its working fine.

    I have written the second plug-in which triggers upon "Update" Message which is not working and giving me the error

    "The given key was not present in the dictionary"

    When I looked into the trace, I believe that its not getting the "id" property from the OutPutParameters prpoerty bag.

    string orderid = context.OutputParameters.Promoerties["id"].toString();


    I believe its because the update is get called (service.Update(entity) in 1st stage within the Plug-in (Create Message) and its not forwarding the "id" property OR  because the "id" property has not been changed so its not in the Propertybag.

    How can I get the "id" ("salesorderid") property value in the Update Plug-in code?


    My question is what's the best way to write something against these events (Create, Update) and can we merge it into single code or not.


    Thanks in advance
