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


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


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

 —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
