For those who are looking for an example to update salesforce records from .Net(c#) Here is an example: I am trying to update a field(TestAccount__c) from the object Account in Salesforce, I have the entreprise wsdl already linked in .Net (C#). I hope you find it useful.

I used this code in the codebehind of a button

  sforce is the name of the sf wsdl

 // setup binding (in init code)

   sforce.SforceService binding = new sforce.SforceService();
   sforce.LoginResult lr = binding.login("username", "password+token");
   binding.Url = lr.serverUrl;
   binding.SessionHeaderValue = new sforce.SessionHeader();
   binding.SessionHeaderValue.sessionId = lr.sessionId;

   // update account

   sforce.Account updateAccount = new sforce.Account();
   updateAccount.Id = "..."; // account id
   updateAccount.TestAccount__c = "Done";
   sforce.SaveResult[] result = binding.update(new sforce.sObject[] {updateAccount });

    // todo: check result

As far as I understood what you're after, you can do that by checking the success property of the SaveResult object:

if (result.success)
    // success
    // result.records[0] returns the updated sforce.Account
    // error
    // the message is : result.errors[0].message;
  • Bachovski, one question for you, if I just want to update fields that have a checkox == true, where should I put this comparison?
