CopySystemFormRequest() , How to add a new form name.. By default the new form name has a 1 at the end. I want to give a new name during the request RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a code that created a clone of the existing Entity Form & it works fine.


    Existing Form Name: FormSample

    New Form Created: FormSample1 .... it just adds 1 at the end.

    I want to give it a name during my request, so the user doesn't have to go there to change the name, It really destroys the purpose of automation.

    Do I need to write another function to get the new form ID and then update the display name ???

     private void BtnCloneSysForm_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
                CopySystemFormRequest req = new CopySystemFormRequest();
                //what entity form do we want to copy
                req.SourceId = new Guid("BCD26E1B-7ADD-45A6-9A3A-F0A245AF49BD");
                CopySystemFormResponse resp = (CopySystemFormResponse)Service.Execute(req);
                if(resp != null)

  • Hi ddd3nick,

    Thank you for posting here.

    First, I want to get some information about Service.Execute() method. What namespace or package do you reference?

    Second, I suggest that you could try the following code to rename it.

    req.RequestName = "Form2";

    Best Regards,
