Get Data sent to server on Save using Dynamics 365 CRM JavaScript | GetDataXML function


Now, in case you are working on forms in Dynamics 365 CRM, and you want to know what all data is changed – There are 2 ways to get this


Let’s look at the below scenario where this is useful –

  1. You have a record which you are about to Edit. This is how it looks as of now.
  2. Now, I have an OnSave event on which I’m calling a function to capture what all is being saved.
  3. Now, below is what I want to change and then click Save to save the changes.
  4. And then click Save. Now, I want to capture all this data upon Saving to know and further process what has been changed. Let’s see how we can achieve this using Dynamics 365 CRM JavaScript

getDataXml() method

Here’s how you will see the data to be changed

  1. Below, you see that I’m using formContext.data.entity.getDataXml(); to get the data that was changed and which will be setn to the server to saving/processing.
    Please note that here, I’ve used formContext as my variable to store the context passed from the Save event on the form.

    Here’s the code for you to copy and change for yourself –  var xmlData = formContext.data.entity.getDataXml();

  2. Now, when I run this on the Dev Tools in the Browser, I can see what is being populated when I save the record.
  3. Once I hit debugger, I’ll get the same in the variable I created.
  4. And when I run this variable in the Console to see the complete data, I get this in XML.
  5. And that’s how you can capture data in Dynamics 365 which is being sent to the server for processing/saving.

Hope this helps!
