JScript validation on Activation/Deactivation of record in CRM 2011

December 13, 2011 3 comments


We can perform JScript validation on Activation or Deactivation of  a record in CRM 2011.

We can achieve this by reading event save mode from CRM context (i.e.,CRM returns unique Codes or Numbers for different actions; Example 5 for Deactivation button click & 6 for Activation click).

Note :-  CRM 2011 JScript allows us to pass “Execution Context” as first parameter to Jscript function.

Below are the steps

1) Create a new Jscript file and place below JScript function

// Use the following function on Form Save Event,

// CRM will pass the execution context in function paramter prmContext

function FrmOnSave(prmContext) {

var wod_SaveMode;

if (prmContext != null && prmContext.getEventArgs() != null) {

// “getSaveMode()” returns event mode value (i.e., 5 on Deactivation button click etc…)

wod_SaveMode = prmContext.getEventArgs().getSaveMode();

// 5 will pass on Deactivate button click

if (wod_SaveMode == 5) {

// Write your “Deactivate” validation code here

alert(“Deactivation event fired”);


// 6 will pass on Activate button click

elseif (wod_SaveMode == 6) {

// Write your “Activate” validation code here

alert(“Activation event fired”);


// Use the code line below only if validation is failed then abort function save event




2. Add the JScript file as a webresource to the default solution

3. Register the function on “onsave” event (As below)

4. Save & Publish

5. Open the record and click on “Activate/Deactivate” button (Refer below screen)

Email format validation in CRM

October 27, 2011 1 comment


The out of the box CRM Email field type does not validate whether the given email is ending with “.com”,”.in”,etc… (Refer below)

  • rajeevpentyala@live  (Its a valid email format as per out of the box CRM Email Type validation)

We can validate all the metrics of Email format by using below steps.

Step 1:-

  • Create a new “Field” (i.e.,new_emailaddress1) of type nvarchar(100)
  • Since the field is normal field, we have to format the field to look like “Email”
  • Place below script in form ‘onload’ event

    var emailTextBox = crmForm.all.new_emailaddress1;

//Set the field style similar to ‘Email’ (i.e., Blue forecolor and Underline) = “#0000ff”; = “underline”;

//Attach ‘on double click’ event
emailTextBox.attachEvent(“ondblclick”, openEmail);
function openEmail() { if (emailTextBox.DataValue != null) document.location = “mailto:” + emailTextBox.DataValue; }

Step 2 (Email Validation) :-

  • We can validate email format either in form’s ‘onsave’ event (or) field’s ‘onchange’ event
  • Register below function as per your requirement (i.e.,Either in ‘onsave’ or ‘onchange’)

function ValidateEmail() {
var emailID = crmForm.all.emailaddress1.DataValue;

if ((emailID.indexOf(“@”) > 0 && (emailID.lastIndexOf(“@”) != (emailID.length – 1))) || (1 == 1)) {
if (^\w+((-\w+)|(\.\w+))*\@[A-Za-z0-9]+((\.|-)[A-Za-z0-9]+)*\.[A-Za-z0-9]+$/) != -1) {
else {
alert(“You must enter a valid e-mail address.”);
event.returnValue = false;

Hope it helps 🙂
