Setting Default Unit in Product form using Javascript

I have seen this question in CRM development forum, where user asked how to set ‘Default Unit’ using javascript, so I wrote below function to do the same

function SetDefaultUnit()


if(Xrm.Page.ui.getFormType() == 1) //Check form type


var number = 1;
var filter = “/UoMScheduleSet?$select=Name,UoMScheduleId&$filter=Name eq ‘Default Unit’”;   //Make sure you have created ‘Default Unit’ record

function GetODataPath() {

return Xrm.Page.context.getServerUrl() + “/xrmservices/2011/organizationdata.svc”;
function RetrieveUnit(filter) {

var retrieveRecordsReq = new XMLHttpRequest();“GET”, GetODataPath() + filter, false);
retrieveRecordsReq.setRequestHeader(“Accept”, “application/json”);
retrieveRecordsReq.setRequestHeader(“Content-Type”, “application/json; charset=utf-8”);
var temp= retrieveRecordsReq.send();

//check status
if (retrieveRecordsReq.readyState == 4 && retrieveRecordsReq.status == 200) {
var retrievedRecords = this.parent.JSON.parse(retrieveRecordsReq.responseText).d;
var Result = retrievedRecords.results[0];

//Set lookup
var lookup = new Object();
var lookupValue = new Array(); = Result.UoMScheduleId;
lookup.entityType = “uomschedule”; = Result.Name;
lookupValue[0] = lookup;

Just create a webresource and attach that webresource to product form and call SetDefaultUnit function onload of product form.

Hope it will help somebody !!

    Thanks a lot. But there’s a problem. When the Unit group was set to ‘Default Unit’ , the Defaut Unit field was disabled at the same time, we have to switch over to another unit group to make it enabled… do you know how to solve this?
