Xrm.Page Model

Xrm.Page Model

The Xrm.Page object serves as a namespace object to consolidate three properties on the form:

Xrm.Page.context

Xrm.Page.context provides methods to retrieve information specific to an organization, a user, or parameters that were passed to the form in a query string.

Xrm.Page.data.entity

Xrm.Page.data provides an entity object that provides collections and methods to manage data within the entity form.

Xrm.Page.ui

Xrm.Page.ui provides collections and methods to manage the user interface of the form.

Syntaxes

— “CRM Enity” Properties

  •  Xrm.Page.data.entity.getEntityName()   //Entity Name
  •  Xrm.Page.data.entity.getId()                     //Record GUID
  •  Xrm.Page.ui.getFormType()                      //CRM Form Type (Integer)
    **Create (1), Update (2), Read Only (3), Disabled (4), Bulk Edit (6)

Get & Set Text Field

  • Xrm.Page.data.entity.attributes.get(“fld_name”).getValue()
  • Xrm.Page.data.entity.attributes.get(“fld_name”).setValue(“First”)

Get Lookup

  •      Xrm.Page.data.entity.attributes.get(“primarycontactid”)
  •     Xrm.Page.data.entity.attributes.get(“primarycontactid”).getValue()[0].id
  •     Xrm.Page.data.entity.attributes.get(“primarycontactid”).getValue()[0].name

Set Lookup

  •  var lookUpValue = new Array();
    lookUpValue[0] = new Object();
    lookUpValue[0].id = idValue;
    lookUpValue[0].name = textValue;
    lookUpValue[0].entityType = ‘{Entity_Name}’;
  • Xrm.Page.getAttribute(“primarycontactid”).setValue(lookUpValue);

— Clear the Lookup

  • To clear the lookup field value, set with ‘null’
  • Xrm.Page.getAttribute(lookupAttribute).setValue(null);

Option Set Properties

  •  Xrm.Page.data.entity.attributes.get(“new_country”)
  • Xrm.Page.data.entity.attributes.get(“new_country”).getOptions()   // All Options
  •  Xrm.Page.data.entity.attributes.get(“new_country”).getText()         // Option Label value
  •  Xrm.Page.data.entity.attributes.get(“new_country”).getValue()       // Selected option value

Set field’s Requirement Level

  • Xrm.Page.getAttribute(“name”).setRequiredLevel(“none”);
  • Xrm.Page.getAttribute(“name”).setRequiredLevel(“required”);
  •  Xrm.Page.getAttribute(“name”).setRequiredLevel(“recommended”);

Set the label for the control

  •  Xrm.Page.ui.controls.get(“name”).setLabel(“Label Text”);

Set URL for IFrams/WebResource

  •  Xrm.Page.ui.controls.get(“IFrame/WebResource Name”).setSrc(“URL”);

Get Parent of current control

  •  Xrm.Page.ui.controls.get(“name”).getParent();

“Current User” & “Organization” details

  • Xrm.Page.context.getUserId()                     //Current User ID
  •  Xrm.Page.context.getOrgUniqueName() //Organization Name
  •  Xrm.Page.context.getServerUrl()              //Server URL
  •  Xrm.Page.context.getUserRoles()             //Role ID’s of current user

Check isDirty

  • Xrm.Page.data.entity.getIsDirty()  // Form is IsDirty
  • Xrm.Page.data.entity.attributes.get(“new_name”).getIsDirty()  //Field is IsDirty

Save Form

  • function save(){Xrm.Page.data.entity.save();}

Save&close Form

  • function saveandclose(){Xrm.Page.data.entity.save(“saveandclose”);}

Close Form

  • function close(){Xrm.Page.ui.close();}

Expand/Collapse Tabs

  • var myTab = Xrm.Page.ui.tabs.get(“{tab_name}”);
  • myTab.setDisplayState(“expanded”); // To expand tab
  • myTab.setDisplayState(“collapsed”); // To collapse tab

Hide/Show Tabs & Sections

  • var myTab = Xrm.Page.ui.tabs.get(“{tab_name}”);
  • myTab.setVisible(True/False);
  • var mySec = myTab.sections.get(“{sec_name}”);
  • mySec.setVisible(True/False);

— Get current form properties if you have multiple forms

  • var item = Xrm.Page.ui.formSelector.getCurrentItem();if (item != null) {var itemId = item.getId(); // Form GUID

    var itemLabel = item.getLabel(); // Form Name

    }

  • Note – If your entity has only one form defined, “getCurrentItem()” will return null so the “item” become “null”

 —Look up window customizations (Unsupported) 

We can perform below customization actions on the lookup dialog window using JScript

 – Disable the “View Selection” dropdown

 – Hide the “New” button

 – Hide the “Search” textbox (i.e.,Quick search)

//To hide “New” button

crmForm.all.attr_name.AddParam(“ShowNewButton”, 0);

// To hide “New” button – Post UR 13

var lookupControl = Sys.Application.findComponent(“attr_name”);

if (lookupControl != null){

lookupControl._element._behaviors[0].AddParam(“ShowNewButton”, 0);

}

//To disable “View Selection” dropdown

document.getElementById(“{attr_name}”).setAttribute(“disableViewPicker”, “1”);

//To hide “Search” textbox

document.getElementById(“{attr_name}”).setAttribute(“disableQuickFind”, “1”);

After applying the script (i.e., After placing the above lines in form onload event), the lookup window looks as below

    Hi,

    I have written the JavaScript code for crm 2011, but after crm upgradation to 2013,

    that code not working in crm 2013. After up-gradation to crm 2013 the lookup is missing its multi value functionality.

    so i need to change below code:

    document.getElementById(“new_product”).setAttribute(“lookupstyle”, “multi”);

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Rajeev,

    we are using crm 2013. we have written some scripts for customization. in these scripts
    we have used selectNodes(), selectSingleNode() functions. what are the replacements for selectNodes(), selectSingleNode() functions in XrmServiceToolKit. and how to use them in crm 2013.

    if you have any information regarding this, please help me.

    thanks in advance,
