    Hi friends!

    I'm using the WebApi to retrieve a systemform entity. As an attribute on the SystemForm entity, I can retrieve the formxml which gives me a nice XML version of the form I want to access.

    My goal is to use this formxml to generate my own external HTML version of the systemform. All I need it to do is display the form for me, as I'll implement the form handler within my webapi driven app.

    It looks like the form renderer is a large part of Dynamics.
    Is there any support for using the formxml outside of CRM?

    Thanks,
    Nick

    Nick,
    It seems that Microsoft Portals and former ADX portals are doing what you mentioned. If you want to render form Html I would recommend to check how it's implemented in ADX portals. Source code is available here - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=55789
