BizForm API - How to check if a column exists in form table

Alexander Toups asked on June 13, 2017 12:01

I want to check if a given form contains a certain column (e.g. userID). I tried:

DataClassInfo formClass = DataClassInfoProvider.GetDataClassInfo(bizFormInfo.FormClassID); formClass.ContainsColumn("userID");

But it always returns false. Any idea?

Try something like this directly in the Bizform: (assuming you're using the biz form)

FormInfo fi = viewBiz.FormInformation;

if (fi != null)
    if (fi.FieldExists("YourFieldName"))
        // field exists so do something
