This illustration shows how to use RetrieveRequest to retrieve an entity instance in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 with VB.NET

Ok, here is what the code looks like!


'Method 1
Dim reqRetrieve1 As New RetrieveRequest()
reqRetrieve1.ColumnSet = New ColumnSet(True)
reqRetrieve1.Target = New EntityReference(Account.EntityLogicalName, New Guid("CCB265C9-5F0C-E111-BF0B-1CC1DEE89AA8"))
Dim respRetrieve1 As RetrieveResponse = DirectCast(slos.Execute(reqRetrieve1), RetrieveResponse)

Dim entRetrieved As Entity = slos.Retrieve(Account.EntityLogicalName, New Guid("CCB265C9-5F0C-E111-BF0B-1CC1DEE89AA8"), New ColumnSet(True))

  1. Very good article, I have a pretty great thing, which is about software ritel. Is the system used by retail or retail trade businesses to manage their operations, including sales, stock items, purchasing, suppliers, and customer service. Isn't that great.
