i am trying to figure out how to get the current state name and changed state name..

i used UpdateFileLifecycleStateEvents_Pre and Post but none of them are triggering events to fetch the label names. 

 

Any body has idea

Can you clarify the problem. 

Are you saying that the Pre and Post events are not firing?  Or are you saying that they are fireing but you don't know how to look up the state names from the EventArgs?

Thanks Doug Redmond for reply, the issue is in Pre and Post events are not at all firing and if they fire how you fetch the state names. Currently i am able to fetch the previous State name, but when the state name is changed to new one, i am unable to fetch the name of state

So, you have two problems...

 

Problem 1: Events not firing

Make sure that your app is loading.  Put a breakpoint in the OnLoad method to verify.  See this article for more information on troubleshooting load errors.

 

Problem 2:  Figuring out the state name

The FROM information can be found on the File objects.  GetLatestFileByMasterId and GetFilesByMasterId are the functions to use.

The TO information can be found by calling LifeCycleService.GetLifeCycleStatesByIds

Sorry, that's a new service in Vault 2013.  If you are using Vault 2012, the function is in DocumentServiceExtensions.

Hi Doug, the GetLifeCycleStatesByIds still points to previous state name, when i change the life cycle and click OK, the GetLifeCycleStatesByIds still refer to previous state.
