Creating Records

Return to TRIM Web Service Samples

When a new record (or other object) is created using the web service layer, the URI for the resulting object is returned in the FetchResult object of the TrimResponse. This URI can also then be used to create child objects.

The example below illustrates how this is done.

   //Create a record and return a URI
   RecordTypeStringSelect recordtypeselect = new RecordTypeStringSelect();
   recordtypeselect.Arg = "Document";             //get Document record type from demodb
   recordtypeselect.Id = "recordtype";
   FetchInjectionUri recordtypeuri = new FetchInjectionUri();
   recordtypeuri.Id = "recordtype";            //get URI of RecordTypeStringSelect (rts) operation
   InputProperty recordname = new InputProperty();
   recordname.Name = "rectitle";             //set title of new record
   recordname.Val = "New Record";
   InputProperty recordtype = new InputProperty();
   recordtype.Name = "recRecordType";    
   recordtype.Val = "inject:recordtype";        //set recordtype of new record using injection from RecordTypeStringSelect (rts) operation above
   Create createrecord = new Create();
   createrecord.TrimObjectType = "record";
   createrecord.Id = "createrecord";
   createrecord.Items = new InputProperty [] {recordtype, recordname};       
     //create new record with recordtype and recordname input properties
   FetchInjectionUri createdrecorduri = new FetchInjectionUri();
   createdrecorduri.Id = "createrecord";            //get URI of newly created record 

From this point you could use “inject: createrecord” to insert the new record’s URI into any further Operations pertaining to the newly created record.

  TrimRequest trimctRequest = new TrimRequest();
  trimctRequest.Items  = new Operation[] {recordtypeselect, recordtypeuri, createrecord, createdrecorduri};            //create trim request which gets the rcord type, its URI, creates a new record using the record type and gets the newly created record's uri
 TrimResponse trimctResponse = engine.Execute (trimctRequest);
   foreach (Result trimctresult in trimctResponse.Items )            //how to interrogate the TrimResponse object and get URI from a fetch result.
    switch (trimctresult.GetType().Name.ToString())
     case "EndResponse":
         // Code to handle the EndResponse
         txtResults.Text += "EndResponse!\r\n";
     case "SuccessResult":
         // Code to handle the SuccessResult
         txtResults.Text += "SuccessResult!\r\n";
     case "FetchResult":
          // Code to handle the FecthResult
          txtResults.Text += "FetchResult!\r\n";
          FetchResult fetchRes = (FetchResult) trimctresult;
          TrimObject [] objs = fetchRes.Objects; 
          foreach (TrimObject tobj in objs)
               txtResults.Text += tobj.Uri.ToString ()  + "\r\n"; 
     case "FetchInjectionUriResult" :
        // Code to handle the FetchInjectionUriResult
          txtResults.Text += "FetchInjectionuriResult!\r\n";
          FetchInjectionUriResult fiuresult = (FetchInjectionUriResult) trimctresult;
          txtResults.Text += fiuresult.Uri + "\r\n"; 
     case "ErrorResult": 
          // Code to handle the ErrorResult        
          txtResults.Text += "ErrorResult!\r\n";
          ErrorResult err = (ErrorResult) trimctresult;
          txtResults.Text += err.Message + "\r\n"; 
         // Code to handle whatever else, etc…
         txtResults.Text += "Other Result!\r\n";
         txtResults.Text += trimctresult.GetType().Name.ToString()+ "\r\n";
