CRM 4.0 Plug-in WARNING

Hi all,

After a very frustrating attempt at getting a plug-in to work properly I found out a rather embarrassing bug.

This is of course assuming that your that your plug-ins have been developed properly and that it has been registered using the plug-in registration tool version 2.0 (for those who are using the one delivered with the sdk.)

If the organization name has a space in it your plug-in will fail to load.

To rename any organization:

  1. Open the deployment manager
  2. Disable the organisation
  3. Remove any spaces in the display name
  4. Re-enable the organization
  5. Proceed to relax and enjoy the superb flexibility that is provided by Plug-ins (Thank You Microsoft).


I hope this has helped.

Thank You

Have a great day.

Hi Oshri Cohen,

I am working on Microsoft CRM Dynamics, 3.0. I need to display the picklist values available in contact, activities, etc. And I am using Java for the same.

I am able to read thru the picklist values. I am not able to read the contents of the fields the data type of which is returned as "Virtual".

-> Virtual -- donotpostalmailname
-> Virtual -- isbackofficecustomername
Virtual -- address2_freighttermscodename
Virtual -- statuscodename

I tried to use picklist functions, but they didnt work. Is it possible to retrieve the values for a 'Virtual' datatype.

PicklistAttributeMetadata picklist = (PicklistAttributeMetadata)aamd.getAttribute(i);
ArrayOfOption aoo = picklist.getOptions();

Could you please help me with some suggestions.
