Noot able to set Look Up value in window.open RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,

    i am trying to set look up value using "Xrm.Utility.openEntityForm("contact", null, parameters);"

    But while save the record only the look up is getting displayed. 

    Look Up  need to be displayed on load event it self. 

    function OpenNewContact() {
        //Set the Parent Customer field value to “Contoso”.
        var extraqs = "parentcustomerid={F01F3F6D-896E-DF11-B414-00155DB1891A}";
        extraqs += "&parentcustomeridname=Contoso";
        extraqs += "&parentcustomeridtype=account";
        //Set the Address Type to “Primary”.
        extraqs += "&address1_addresstypecode=3";
        //Set text in the Description field.
        extraqs += "&description=Default values for this record were set programatically.";
        //Set Do not allow E-mails to "Do Not Allow".
        extraqs += "&donotemail=1";
        //Set features for how the window will appear.
        var features = "location=no,menubar=no,status=no,toolbar=no";
        // Open the window.
        window.open("/main.aspx?etn=contact&pagetype=entityrecord&extraqs=" +
         encodeURIComponent(extraqs), "_blank", features, false);

  • Please make sure that Contoso is an account in your system and GUID of this record should be as stated in the code

  • Hi,

    You need to change the Guid and account name that exist in your system. Account with Guid doesn't exist F01F3F6D-896E-DF11-B414-00155DB1891A and Name Constoso in your system.

    Please change it to Guid of account that exist in your system.
