Duration fields are presented as a picklist giving the user a selection of time options from 1 minute to 3 days. But the actual value of a duration field is an integer. If a user types an integer into the field or your code sets the value of the integer representing minutes, the field will convert that value into a more user-friendly unit of measurement. For example, 420 will be displayed as 7 hours.

The following properties are available:

Duration propertiesTypeDescription
{Field}.DataValueinteger or NullGet/set property.

The duration can be set to Null. The original value is left unchanged if the new value cannot be parsed.


The following code example shows how to use a field of type Duration.

var iMinutes = 60;

crmForm.all.SOME_DURATION_FIELD_ID.DataValue = iMinutes;
