In previous a post i posted how to default a value on a lookup field in 4.0. Here is the solution for CRM 2011
function priceList()
{
//Create an array to set as the DataValue for the lookup control.
var lookupData = new Array();
//Create an Object add to the array.
var lookupItem= new Object();
//Set the id, typename, and name properties to the object.
lookupItem.id = ‘{27457CD-3C7C-E011-8E52-1CC1DE7983EB%257d}’;
lookupItem.typename = ‘pricelevel’;
lookupItem.name = ‘test’;
// Add the object to the array.
lookupData[0] = lookupItem;
// Set the value of the lookup field to the value of the array.
Xrm.Page.getAttribute(“pricelevelid”).setValue(lookupData);
}

In my example i am getting the pricelist “test” and defaulting it in the pricelist field on the Opportunity entity. Below is the template you can use to utilize the code for a different look up and values.
function priceList()
{
//Create an array to set as the DataValue for the lookup control.
var lookupData = new Array();
//Create an Object add to the array.
var lookupItem= new Object();
//Set the id, typename, and name properties to the object.
lookupItem.id = ‘{Fields Guid}’;
lookupItem.typename = ‘Entity Name’;
lookupItem.name = Lookup Value;
// Add the object to the array.
lookupData[0] = lookupItem;
// Set the value of the lookup field to the value of the array.
Xrm.Page.getAttribute(“FieldName”).setValue(lookupData);

}

Enjoy!!

In a previous post i showed how to display originating leads notes in an iframe after converting. In Microsoft CRM 2011 that code no longer works. Here is the updated code.
function originatingLeadNotes()
{
var Parent = Xrm.Page.data.entity.attributes.get(“originatingleadid”);
var IFrame = Xrm.Page.ui.controls.get(“IFRAME_originatingLeadNotes”);

if (Parent.getValue() != null) {

var GUIDvalue = Parent.getValue()[0].id;

IFrame.setSrc(“/_controls/notes/notesdata.aspx?id=”+ GUIDvalue + ” &ParentEntity=3&EnableInlineEdit=false&EnableInsert=false”);
}
else
{
IFrame.setSrc(“about:blank”);
}

}

Enjoy!

Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Bit field Onchange instant response Jscript November 27, 2010

In many situations you need the instant reaction when a user clicks a bit field, not the delay it normally does. By using the below code, you will now be able to click the bit field and have instant results. Not having to click off screen for the onchange to fire.

The following code will be placed Onload. Replace “bitfield” with your actual bit field, and place your onchange code inside the “{}”

crmForm.all.bitfield.onclick = function()
{
//Existing onChange() code
}

Enjoy!

Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Edit Site Map September 27, 2010

For those that are exploring the new beta CRM 2011 know that a lot has changed. One of the things I wanted to play around with was Site Map editing to see what was different from CRM 4.0. CRM 2011 now has a new feature called “Solutions” which pretty much took over the role of import/export customizations in 4.0. My first efforts were to create a “Solution” and add the Site Map client extension to it. Then, export the Solution, unzip the folder, open Site Map in notepad, make changes, and import back in. Failed. Hmmm ok, let me try and import the original zipped export i did. Success. Ok so basically I could import the original zip file just not one I unzipped. So then i right clicked on zipped folder, selected open with Winzip, modified the sitemap, save and close. Imported successfully. Basically what I see is it needed the orginal export, not a duplicate copy. Im sure there are multiple other ways of doing this so please post to this with other options.

Hope this helps!

Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Removing commas in integer field September 2, 2010

Posted by jarrettexpertcrm in Microsoft CRM General.

Sometimes it is necessary to have int fields without the commas. Place the following code onload:
if(crmForm.all.fieldname != null && crmForm.all.fieldname.DataValue != null)
{
crmForm.all.fieldname.value = crmForm.all.fieldname.DataValue;
}

Thats all it takes. Enjoy!

Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Accessing Parent Form July 28, 2010

In some cases you made need to have a code fire based on information from the parent form of that entity. For example, lets say you have a checkbox on the Order form that has values “Approved” and “Unapproved”. You need to have the Product lookup field disabled on the Order Product entity if the value “Unapproved” is checked. This is just an example, there are many other scenarios where this might come in handy. Place this code onload of the child entity.

if (
(window.opener != null) &&
(window.opener.parent != null) &&
(window.opener.parent.document != null) &&
(window.opener.parent.document.crmForm != null)) {

var parentForm = window.opener.parent.document.crmForm;
var formType;

switch(parentForm.FormType)
{

case 1:
formType = “Create Form”;
break;

case 2:
formType = “Update Form”;
break;

case 3:
formType = “Read Only Form”;
break;

case 4:
formType = “Disabled Form”;
break;

case 5:
formType = “Quick Create Form”;
break;

case 6:
formType = “Bulk Edit Form”;
break;

default:
formType = “Undefined Form Type”;
break;
}

if (parentForm.ObjectTypeName == “PARENTENTITY”)
{

if(parentForm.all.FIELD.DataValue == VALUE)

{
//PLACE FUNCTION FOR CHILD ENTITY HERE

}

}
}

Enjoy!

Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Setting field requirement level with jscript July 23, 2010

Sometimes it is necessary to change a field’s requirement level after the action of something else. Lets say you have a picklist called Contact Method, and one of those values is “email”. Once the user selects email, you want the email field to now become a required field so he/she doesn’t accidentally forget to put in the email address. However, the user may select the value “phone”. You then wouldn’t want the email address to be required because its not applicable, the phone field is what you want required. The point is, you need the field to become required when a particular value is selected, not all the time. Place this line of code onchange of the field you want to trigger it. Replace “fieldname” with the name of your field you want to set the requirement level on.

crmForm.SetFieldReqLevel(“fieldname”, 1);

Enjoy!
