Experts,

Am beginning to work on some of the behind-the-scenes stuff with Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

A client I am customizing the CRM for has decided that the charting feature built-in to the CRM is inadequate, so we have decided to implement ComponentArt's charting solution for ASP.NET ( http://www.componentart.com ). Since I haven't worked with ASP.NET or C# a day in my life, I picked up a book, and I think I can handle this on my own once I get started.

This is the issue: Almost all of the charts I am using need to be context-based, i.e. the end-user will select a contact from the list of contacts, and the reports that I generate all select records that are related to that client.

I am assuming that I am going to be deploying these charts as aspx files with the ComponentArt controls in the code of the aspx files. Then in the code-behind for that file, I will use C# to retrieve which contact was selected to run this report for. Anyone know how I go about doing this? Am I too vague? Is there more information needed?

Thanks.
