When using EntityRecord.getNamedReference(), as per the docs I should receive an object of type EntityReference. When I view the type definition for this type it currently contains the following properties:
1. id -> object with guid property
2. etn -> optional
When I debug my pcf control and place breakpoints on the ts file in Chrome where this method is called I am getting the attached object returned, which does not contain and "etn" property.
This both does not match with the Type definition, and, as there is no "etn" property of this object, this means that I am not able to get the entity logical name from the reference. I have to edit the type definition and then add a couple extra optional properties to this type:
On top of this, ComponentFramework.Context.navigation.openForm takes an EntityFormOptions object which contains a property: createFromEntity, of type EntityReference. If I follow the current type definition for this object type, I cannot use openForm to open a create entity form as the Id parameter is incorrect for the "createFromEntity". From the documentation the properties for the "createFromEntity" EntityReference should be a flat set of strings, but the type definition for the id property indicates an object with a property.
