How to match the record type name in trigger!!



In opportunity object i need to write apex trigger to send a email notification if stage is closed won and RecordType name is xyz.

Im not able to match the record type name, since I have 10 record type, I need to send a email based on the record type.

Plz help on this.





In Apex you can get the information related to record type by below mentioned way

For EX: if you want to get record type id then


ID rectypeid = Schema.SObjectType.customobject__c.getRecordTypeInfosByName().get('recordtypename').getRecordTypeId();

Here replace customobject__c with your object name and recordtypename with your recordtypename.

So you can use above syntax and get any information related to Record Type.


Refer Below link which will guide you in proper way to understand and you can use it for your scenario.

Use the RecordTypeId field on the Opportunity to filter the RecordType,

In your Trigger, query like
List<Opportunity> opplist = [Select Name from Opportunity Where RecordType.Name = 'AutoLease'];






Yes the above mentioned way like where RecordType.Name is also simple for you to Query.
