Show custom messages as banner notifications – CRM 2011

In CRM 2011, one way to show custom messages is using Jscript ‘alert’ function.

In one of our requirement we have to display a custom message on CRM form banner like OOB notification.

Notification

Notification

We can achieve this using Jscript, but it’s an unsupported way and there are no guarantees that this code won’t change in the future.

I am providing 2 scripts which is compatible Pre and Post UR 12.

Post UR 12

// Level – 1 (Critical), Level – 2 (Info), Level – 3 (Warning),

function addNotification(message, level) {

try {

var notificationsList = Sys.Application.findComponent(‘crmNotifications’);

if (notificationsList) {

notificationsList.AddNotification(‘noteId1’, level, ‘namespace’, message);

}

} catch (e) {

}

}

Pre UR 12

// Level – 1 (Critical), Level – 2 (Info), Level – 3 (Warning),

function addNotification(message, level) {

try {

var notificationsArea = document.getElementById(‘crmNotifications’);

if (notificationsArea) {

if (level == 1) { //critical

notificationsArea.AddNotification(‘mep1’, 1, ‘source’, message);

}

if (level == 2) { //Info

notificationsArea.AddNotification(‘mep3’, 3, ‘source’, message);

}

if (level == 3) { //Warning

notificationsArea.AddNotification(‘mep2’, 2, ‘source’, message);

}

if (message == “”) { // Clear the notifications

notificationsArea.SetNotifications(null, null);

}

}

} catch (e) {

}

}

How do I use the method

  • To show custom message as Information, pass message and Level =2

              addNotification(“This is sample message.”, 2);

Note – CRM 2013, has a new feature to display  Notifications which is a supported way.
