Implement Google Map API in CRM 2011

In this article , I am going to explain how to use Google Map API in CRM 2011

In my custom entity have two attributes "new_fromaddress" and "new_toaddress" and i need to show Address Path direction using Google Map API
To display path , I created HTML web resource and in html web resource inserted two div panels
<div id ="directionpanel"  style="height: 390px;overflow: auto;width: 200px" ></div>
<div id ="map" style="height: 390px; width: 500px"></div>


To use Google API need to insert javascript Class
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false"></script>

To find CRM main entity attributes need to insert Class
<script type="text/javascript" src="ClientGlobalContext.js.aspx"></script>

To initialize Google map , need to write javascript function InitializeMap()
    var directionsDisplay;
    var directionsService = new google.maps.DirectionsService();

    function InitializeMap() {
        directionsDisplay = new google.maps.DirectionsRenderer();
        var latlng = new google.maps.LatLng(-34.397, 150.644);
        var myOptions =
        {
            zoom: 8,
            center: latlng,
            mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP
        };
        var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map"), myOptions);

        directionsDisplay.setMap(map);
        directionsDisplay.setPanel(document.getElementById('directionpanel'));

        var control = document.getElementById('control');
        control.style.display = 'block';
 }


and call this function on window load event.
window.onload = InitializeMap;


To show From and To addresses Path Direction , need to write function findDirection()
function findDirection() {
        var start = window.parent.Xrm.Page.getAttribute('new_fromaddress').getValue();
        var end = window.parent.Xrm.Page.getAttribute('new_toaddress').getValue();
        var request = {
            origin: start,
            destination: end,
            travelMode: google.maps.DirectionsTravelMode.DRIVING
        };
        directionsService.route(request, function (response, status) {
            if (status == google.maps.DirectionsStatus.OK) {
                directionsDisplay.setDirections(response);
            }
        });
}
and called this function after InitializeMap function
findDirection();


Complete HTML web resource code

Use the Early Bound Entity Classes for Create, Update, and Delete in CRM 2011

In last article, I explained how to create early bound entity class and In this article, i am going to explain how to use the early bound entity classes for create,update and delete.

Create a New Entity Record Using the Early-bound Entity Classes and the Organization Service Context
OrganizationServiceContext orgContext =new OrganizationServiceContext(_serviceProxy);
Contact contact = new Contact()
{
   FirstName = "Navish",
   LastName = "Jain",
   Address1_Line1 = "#1429",
   Address1_City = "Chandigarh",
   Address1_StateOrProvince = " Chandigarh ",
   Address1_PostalCode = "160036",
   Telephone1 = "123-234-5678"
};
orgContext.AddObject(contact);
orgContext.SaveChanges();


Update a New Entity Record Using the Early-bound Entity Classes and the Organization Service Context
var contact =  orgContext .CreateQuery<Contact>().First(c => c.FirstName == "navish");
contact.JobTitle = "CRM Consultant";
orgContext .UpdateObject(contact);
orgContext .SaveChanges();


Delete a New Entity Record Using the Early-bound Entity Classes and the Organization Service Context
var contact =  orgContext .CreateQuery<Contact>().First(c => c.FirstName == "navish");
orgContext .DeleteObject(contact);
orgContext .SaveChanges();



Create a New Entity Record Using the Early-Bound Entity Classes and without a Context Object
Contact contact = new Contact()
{
   FirstName = "Navish",
   LastName = "Jain",
   Address1_Line1 = "#1429",
   Address1_City = "Chandigarh",
   Address1_StateOrProvince = " Chandigarh ",
   Address1_PostalCode = "160036",
   Telephone1 = "123-234-5678"
};
_contactId = _serviceProxy.Create(contact);


Create Early-Bound Entity Classes with the Code Generation Tool (CrmSvcUtil.exe) in CRM 2011

In this article, I going to explain how to create early-bound entity classes with the code Generation Tool(CrmSvcUtil.exe)

You can find the utility in the SDK download package in the SDK\Bin folder.The classes created by the code generation tool are designed to be built into a class library that can be referenced by projects that use Microsoft Dynamics CRM. After you have generated the classes using the tool, you should add the file that contains the classes to your Visual Studio project or solution

Assemblies Need to Include
Microsoft.Crm.Sdk.Proxy.dll
Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.dll

Run the Code Generation Utility
Run this utility from the SDK\Bin folder. If you run the utility from another location, the Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.dll assembly, located in the SDK\Bin folder, must be located in the same folder

Format for running the utility from the command line 
CrmSvcUtil.exe /url:http://<servername>/<organizationname>
/XRMServices/2011/Organization.svc /out:<outputfilename>.cs /username:<username> /password:<password> /domain:<domainname> /namespace:<outputnamespace> /serviceContextName:<service context name>

Examples to use the code generation utility from the command line for each deployment type
Claims Authentication Active Directory
CrmSvcUtil.exe /url:http://CRM2011:5555/Org/XRMServices/2011/Organization.svc /out:GeneratedCode.cs /username:administrator /password:password


Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online
CrmSvcUtil.exe /url:https://org.crm.dynamics.com/XRMServices/2011/Organization.svc /out:GeneratedCode.cs /username:"myname@live.com" /password:"myp@ssword!" /deviceid:"9eqd9qip4meckbxhyi838gn3" /devicepassword:"543opae9itRWKO+U7fe+I3MRVANUyFFPcfDJYP5ItZo="


Claims Authentication - IFD

        var entityName = "pms_timesheetperiod";

        // give the custom view a name
        var viewDisplayName = "Active time sheet periods for " + fiscalYear + "";

        // find all contacts where [Parent Customer] = [Account indicated by AccountId]
        // AND where [Statecode] = Active
        var fetchXml = "<fetch version='1.0' output-format='xml-platform' mapping='logical' distinct='false'>" +
