Inspired by the Advanced Find on record forms for CRM 2013 tool on codeplex, I thought I would also add a tool of my own which would get the guid of a record.

Getting the guid of a record is one of the boring manual jobs I have to do when testing my plugin code and there are many ways to do this

Quick way to get a guid in CRM 2013

but I wanted an easier way and I was also interested in creating a project on codeplex to see how that process worked.

So here is the project

Basically the tool doesn’t do much apart from show the guid in the form notification area of the record.  To use it you install the managed solution

Then you will see the option on all default and custom records.  To find the button click the 3 dots

Then when you have clicked the button the guid shall magically appear

The hardest part of the whole process was getting GIT to work so I could upload the source files.

So I can proudly say I have created a tool, now all I have to do is create a tool which does something more useful.
