I want to check if the (standard) Name field of an object is an auto number field or not. This can be done by describing the field and using
I have a custom object called Project_Resource__c with a Name field set as autonumber.
The following code returns
In a test factory class, I have a piece of code that does operations on an sObject, this can be any object, standard or custom. What I want to achieve is to get the Name field of that particular object and check if it is an auto number field.
I've tried the following code, but with no result:
sObject sobj; sobj = new Project_Resource__c(); insert sobj; //my assumption is that this should fill the name with the auto number //compile error: Expression of type Schema.SObjectTypeFields has no member named Name System.debug(sobj.getSObjectType().getDescribe().fields.Name.getDescribe().isAutonumber()); // I would have expected to see the fields here system.debug(sobj.getSObjectType().getDescribe().fields);// Returns Fields[Project_Resource__c]
Something else I find strange (but might be unrelated) is that after the insert
returns null, while
system.debug([select name from project_resource__c]);
returns a project_resource__c with an auto number name
