Leave a comment

Brief :

Consider having an option set on a Dynamics CRM 2011/2013/2015 form and you want
to change the selected item or it have no selected item currently and you would like to set it.

You have to 2 ways to do it.

  • By Value


  • By Text

    Actually you can’t set the selected item by text by you can search all options untill you find the on whose text (label) is the same as one the one you have then get its value

    setOptionSetByOptionText = function(optionsetAttribute, optionText)

    var options = Xrm.Page.getAttribute(optionsetAttribute).getOptions();

    for(i = 0; i < options.length; i++)
    if (options[i].text == optionText)



    ExamplesetOptionSetByOptionText ("new_nationality","American");
