RetrieveExchangeRateRequest Class

Contains the data that is needed to retrieve the exchange rate.

Namespace: Microsoft.Crm.Sdk.Messages
Assembly: Microsoft.Crm.Sdk.Proxy (in Microsoft.Crm.Sdk.Proxy.dll)

public sealed class RetrieveExchangeRateRequest : OrganizationRequest

The following example shows how to use this message. For this sample to work correctly, you must be connected to the server to get an IOrganizationService interface. For the complete sample, see the link later in this topic.

// Connect to the Organization service. 
// The using statement assures that the service proxy will be properly disposed.
using (_serviceProxy = new OrganizationServiceProxy(serverConfig.OrganizationUri, serverConfig.HomeRealmUri,serverConfig.Credentials, serverConfig.DeviceCredentials))
// using the service context makes retrieving entities easier
using (_context = new ServiceContext(_serviceProxy))
    // This statement is required to enable early-bound type support.

    String currentOrganizatoinUniqueName = GetCurrentOrganizationName(serverConfig);


    RetrieveExchangeRateRequest request = new RetrieveExchangeRateRequest()
        TransactionCurrencyId = _currency.Id
    RetrieveExchangeRateResponse response = 
    Console.WriteLine("  Retrieved exchange rate for created currency");

    // get the base currency for the current org
    var baseCurrencyName = 
        (from currency in _context.TransactionCurrencySet
         join org in _context.OrganizationSet 
         on currency.Id equals org.BaseCurrencyId.Id
         where org.Name == currentOrganizatoinUniqueName
         select currency.CurrencyName).FirstOrDefault();
    Console.WriteLine("  This organization's base currency is {0}",

        "  The conversion from {0} -> {1} is {2}",
