I'm using Act 2010 Premium with SDK and I'm trying to get the values of the contact fields after they're updated. The fields aren't updated until I click on a company and then a contact within that company and then return to the original contact that has been changed.
Contact contact = application.ApplicationState.CurrentContact;
Act.Framework.MutableEntities.MutableEntity.FieldCollection contactFields = contact.Fields;
string newCompanyName = Convert.ToString(contactFields["Contact.Company", false]);
the newCompanyName retains the old value until the steps taken above..
Can anyone help or point me in the right direction?

Rather than forcing an update for the current contact you could monitor the Contact_Updated event and make the changes at that point. Another option could be to do the same with except with the FieldChanged event which occurs after changing a field then leaving for another.
Also how are you setting the field value? .SetValue?
Hope this helps.

No, not changing the fields via SDK. Just trying to obtain the values using the SDK.
I found a solution. I couldn't use application.ApplicationState.CurrentContact to get the updated values so I used
private ActFramework ACTFM;
ContactListcontactList = ACTFM.Contacts.GetContactsByID
as long as I click the save button, I could get the most updated values.
I hope that helps anyone researching this in the future
