Record Type and Layout Tracking.

I want to create a similar view of any SF entity page after a click on WIL associated with that Entity. Like If I click on a WIL of Account, I Should able to display only those fields those are Available in The Record Type and Layout for that Specific Account.


When I made a describe call it gives me bunch of all the columns. But I may requires to display lesser columns, depending on Record Type and Layouts.


Does it possible using sforce API to track Layouts and Record Type for any specific Entities?






Hi Amar,

That information, although available, is not currently accessible.  We will be rolling out an extended describe call in an upcoming release specifically designed to handle this issue.


Thanks Dave,

I will be eagerly waiting for the next version, this would be really a great feature to work with.

Hi Dave,

By when we can expect the next release of API with the functionality mentioned in this thread.


The layout / recordtype info is available via the DescribeLayout call in sforce 5.0
Thanks Simon,

This is an excellent feature. It would be great working on this.
