The problem at hand is that I need to use WebAPI services to get data structured in objects and use similar objects client-side in typescript code to structure and manipulate my frontend code. In C# and WebAPI I have the option to use enums:
1 public enum SearchOption
3 [EnumDescription("Starting With")]
7 [EnumDescription("Equal to")]
9 [EnumDescription("Not Equal to")]
…which is very convenient because I then could get to the “description” info by reading the attribute for the enum. In typescript on the other hand, there are enums:

I assume that you have read my previous post and now you would like to bind the attached web resource to some information coming from the calling form, no?
This is supported out-of-the-box in CRM Dynamics 2011 as well as in 2013, but not automatically activated. To activate this feature, you will need to edit the customizations XML file.
Go find the solution that you have been working on and export it, making sure that the customizations option is checked:
First, you go into the solution where you want to add the new customization, in my case the solution was called Tickets. I made sure the Account Entity was included into it, yet I did not bother to include its dependencies.

Using CEC you could send:
echo "as" | cec-client -s
to switch to the next input,. However this is inconvenient since it does not switch "back" to your previous input. So what can you do?
Get this lovely utility from here. (Disclaimer: I did not write this, I got it on GitHub). It is a lovely python script which you can use to send commands to your samsung TV AFTER you have turned it on. In my case I use the commands KEY_HDMI2 or KEY_HDMI3 but there is a great variety of commands that you can send.
Keep in mind, your device (where the script will run needs to be paired with your TV in order for this to work. This can be a simple procedure, the first time you fire a command the TV asks if you would like to pair with the device, you say yes and that's all.
Python is already installed on the xBian Linux for R-Pi. So, in the same manner that I have described here, you can set up an ssh command that executes this script with python on your raspberry Pi.
$ python samsung.py KEY_HDMI.
A more comprehensive list of commands can be found online, search google for samsung and KEY_HDMI or look for example here.

This should be – like I said – user-dependent. Every user should be able to decide in which state he / she wants to operate the checkbox.
Saleslogix offers such methods out of the box. No creation of corresponding database tables and manual manipulation of values. This is done by using the embedded Application.UserOptions methods.
Inside the OnFormChange event, we check if the values exist and if so, we set them for the current instance:
Pay attention to the “Application.BasicFunctions.CurrentUserID” modifier for the CATEGORY KEY of the UserOption. Actually, the name UserOptions is not appropriate here since these keys are actually common for all users. Thus, we need to concatenate the group key with the current user ID to avoid exceptions trying to push entries with the same Primary key in SLX DB.
if Application.UserOptions.Exists("hideTestCheckBox", "LicenseContact" & Application.BasicFunctions.CurrentUserID) = true then hideTestCheckBox.Checked = Application.UserOptions.GetAsBoolean("hideTestCheckBox", "LicenseContact" & Application.BasicFunctions.CurrentUserID) End If
(The primary key consists of the combination of the two strings inside the “Exists” statement, in our case “hideTestCheckBox” and “LicenseContact + UserID”)
In the event where the checkbox gets updated, we need to push the updated value in the User Options. This is done as such:
Sub hideTestCheckBoxClick(Sender) if Application.UserOptions.Exists("hideTestCheckBox", "LicenseContact" & Application.BasicFunctions.CurrentUserID) = false then Application.UserOptions.Add "hideTestCheckBox", "LicenseContact" & Application.BasicFunctions.CurrentUserID, "Hide Test Licenses", hideTestCheckBox.Checked end if Application.UserOptions.SetAsBoolean "hideTestCheckBox", "LicenseContact" & Application.BasicFunctions.CurrentUserID, hideTestCheckBox.Checked, false UpdateDataGrid End Sub
Obviously we need to add the key to the database in case it is not there yet. The first “IF” statement is run only once here per user. But this is mandatory, otherwise SLX throws an exception that the key is missing.

Hello again. Let´s say you have a couple of hidden fields inside an html form and the latest version of jQuery keeps on ignoring their validation on the client side. This has been the updated default behavior after version 1.9.0. Do you need to change it? Try inserting the script below in your page that contains the form.
