CHECKING DIRTY FIELDS IN DYNAMICS 365 USING JAVASCRIPT

CHECKING DIRTY FIELDS IN DYNAMICS 365 USING JAVASCRIPT

In Dynamics 365, it is crucial to know which fields have been modified on the form during an update. While creating a plugin to receive data of the modified fields on the current update event is one solution, this tutorial shows you how to identify the modified fields through JavaScript. The trick is to check if the form or fields are in a dirty state, which signifies if they've been changed.

The tutorial outlines three methods to identify if the form or specific fields are dirty, including:
  1. Checking if the form is dirty to verify if any field on the form has been modified by using the function getIsDirty. This function will return true if the form is dirty, false if not.
  2. Checking if a field is dirty to verify if a specific field on the form has been changed by using the function getAttribute("schema-field-name").getIsDirty(). This function will return true if the field is dirty, and false otherwise.
  3. Displaying all the modified fields to verify what fields on the form have been changed. This is done by using the function getDataXml(), which will return the list of attributes that have been modified on the form with the values of each field. This function generates an XML result indicating the entity logical name and the logical name of each field, complete with their current values.

The article concludes by emphasizing the importance of these methods for Dynamics 365 developers and hopes that the information provided helps them in identifying dirty fields in Dynamics 365.
