Find Control (cssClass)
The Find Control function accepts the CSS Class of a widget as its sole parameter. This function will then return the specified widget as an object. This function is necessary for the usage of functions that accept the control object as a parameter.
In this example, you can see that returning the CSS Class of a CRM Text Field will return the text field as an object.
Control Type (control)
The Control Type function accepts a control object and will return the type of the control.
In this example, we have to make use of the findControl function in order to return the CRM Text Field as an object. Following that, you just have to call the controlType function in order to retrieve the type of control.
Set Control Value (control, value)
The Set Control Value function allows you to set the value of a control object. This function only works for the CRMTextField, CRMStatus, CRMPicklist, CRMLookup, CRMDateTimeField, CRMBoolean, and CRMRatingField widgets.
CRM Text Field
In this example, the value of a text box is set to a provided value.
CRM Status Field
The status field only accepts two values, Active
CRM Pick list
In this example, the widget is set to the gender field. The pick list can only be set to a value that already appears inside of it; in this case male and female.
CRM Look Up
The CRM Look Up widget can only be set to a value that exists within the widget much like the pick list.
CRM Date Time Field
This example shows that there is more than one way to enter a date and a time through the API.
CRM Yes/No or Boolean
Please note that the only applicable options for a CRM Yes/No widget are true and false.
CRM Rating Field
Get Control Value (control)
The Get Control Value function will return the value of the specified control. This function will only work for the CRMTextField, CRMStatus, CRMPicklist, CRMLookup, CRMDateTimeField, CRMBoolean, and CRMRatingField widgets
Disable Control (control)
The Disable Control function will set the Enabled property of the widget to false, thus disabling the widget.
Enable Control (control)
The Enable Control function will set the Enabled
property of the widget to true, thus enabling the widget.
