        if (rowRecordId) {
            let entityReference = this.contextObj.parameters.simpleTableGrid.records[rowRecordId].getNamedReference();
            let entityFormOptions = {
               entityName: entityReference.etn!,
                entityId: entityReference.id.guid,

Hi @HemantG @a33ik  and @v-xida-msft 

 

Thank you so much for your help and precious time.

 

i was just tried to open the entity form by clicking on the Record Row at the Entity grid view.

I have fixed the issue by updating the EntityReference interface in the 

"node_modules\@types\powerapps-component-framework\componentframework.d.ts"

earlier my code was looked like this

    

interface EntityReference {
/**
* The record id. Read-only.
*/
id: { guid: string; };

/**
* The entity logical name. Read-only.
*/
etn?: string;

/**
* The name of the entity reference. Read-only.
*/
name: string;
}

 

I have updated it

 

interface EntityReference {
      /**
       * The record id. Read-only.
       */
      // id: { guid: string; };
      _id: string;

      /**
       * The entity logical name. Read-only.
       */
      _etn?: string;

      /**
       * The name of the entity reference. Read-only.
       */
      name: string;
   }
 
because when i debug it i console i looked the properties name with "_".
 
Thanks again for your help.

Hi @MBilal-079 ,

Do you want to launch a dialog to open your specific Entity Form?

 

The context.navigation.openForm(options [, parameters]) function is used to open a entity form or a quick create form, so please make sure you have specified a proper value for the formId attribute within the EntityFormOptions argument in your context.navigation.openForm(options [, parameters]) function.

In addition, the attributes mentioned within the EntityFormOptions are all Required attribute, so you must provide a proper value each one of them (except "useQuickCreateForm" attribute.)

 

Please consider modify the function in your index.ts file as below:

let rowRecordId = (event.currentTarget as HTMLTableRowElement).getAttribute(RowRecordId);
if (rowRecordId) {
            let entityReference = this.contextObj.parameters.simpleTableGrid.records[rowRecordId].getNamedReference();
            let entityFormOptions = {
                createFromEntity: {
                                    entityType: "xxx",
                                    id: "xxxx",
                                    name: "xxxx"
                                  },
                entityName: entityReference.etn!,
                entityId: entityReference.id.guid,
                formId: "Type specific form Id which you want to display here",   // modify formula here
                height: 580,
                width: 400,
                windowPosition: 1,
                openInNewWindow: false
            }
            this.contextObj.navigation.openForm(entityFormOptions);
        }

The Form Id of the specific Entity form as below:

Hello,

Have you enabled Utility in ControlManifest file? If not it will look like following:

    <feature-usage>
      <uses-feature name="Utility" required="true" />
    </feature-usage>

Please check the PCF sample for openForm and compare the runtime parameters and formats - here

Internally it uses the ClientAPI for openForm here .

 

Code snippet below for ClientAPI shows the parameters  

var entityFormOptions = {};
entityFormOptions["entityName"] = "contact";

// Set default values for the Contact form
var formParameters = {};
formParameters["firstname"] = "Sample";
formParameters["lastname"] = "Contact";
formParameters["fullname"] = "Sample Contact";
formParameters["emailaddress1"] = "contact@adventure-works.com";
formParameters["jobtitle"] = "Sr. Marketing Manager";
formParameters["donotemail"] = "1";
formParameters["description"] = "Default values for this record were set programmatically.";

// Open the form.
Xrm.Navigation.openForm(entityFormOptions, formParameters).then(
function (success) {
console.log(success);
},
function (error) {
console.log(error);
});

 

You can check and compare the values for working and non working code in the browser debug console. I suspect that the format might be different.
