Problem using the Activity 'statecode' to fire a javascript function RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to execute a javascript function on the 'statecode' field in the Activity entities. By default when an activity is Open, it is set to '0', however I want to execute two other functions (one for 'Complete' and one for 'Cancel') based on the statecode status changes (1 & 2 respectively). However, when an activity is either marked as Complete or Cancelled; neither of these functions are firing, instead the activity is deactivated. I need the functions to run so how can I achieve this?

  • Hi Marcus,

    You can't do it with javascript cause javascript is a client side scripting whereas statecode is getting changed in server.So all you need to do is you have to write some plugin on state change of the activity.

  • You will have to do this on save event. first check :-

    Xrm.Page.ui.getFormType() ==4 //form is disabaled than check status and do the work

  • Thanks for the reply, how do I use the above line? In an if/else statement during an onSave event?

  • Yes, you could use it through an if condition as Faisal mentioned. However, the first reply is better and you could use plugin for a reliable solution.

  • Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure how to go about creating a plugin but do you have an example of how Faisal's code is used? I'm not sure how to go about implementing that.

  • Hi Marcus,

    You can update the fields in Form Save event using JavaScipt.

    1.You should pass the execution context

    2.Below are the values of event mode for Activity on Save event

    Entity
    Event Mode
    Value
    Activities
    Save as Completed
    58
    Activities
    Close Activity <sup>Note 2</sup>
    5

    3.You can check if the Value is "58" or '5" call your JavaScript function to set the value .

    Just refer following post to achieve this.
