Scenario Overview 

In this scenario, we want to use some of North52s functionality with a custom JavaScript we have.

Using the North52 formula ExecuteCustomJSFunction , we can call upon any Custom JavaScript functions that have been loaded to the Form. 

N52 Formula Manager Solution

The Formula Manager solution works like this:

  • A formula of type Clientside - Perform Action' is created on the Account entity
  • This Formula will be triggered whenever an Account is loaded using the default Account Form. 
  • The formula will execute the custom JavaScript function. 
    • This Function will show a Form Notification. 
    • It will also use Findvalue to grab the Accounts associated Contact description Field and show it in the Form Notificaiton.

Custom JavaScript steps

Note 1 : If you already have your own custom JavaScript, you may wish to skip this step. 

For this example , we will create a simple custom JavaScript that will set a Form Notification whenever the default Account form is loaded. 

  • Open up the CRM solution you are working in.
  • Under Components , click New > Web Resource.
  • Under Name , enter "LoadJSonAccountForm"
  • Under Display Name , enter "LoadJSonAccountForm"
  • Under Type, select Script(JScript)
  • A Text Editor button should appear, click on it.
  • Copy and paste the JavaScript Functions below.
  • Click Ok.
  • Click Save and Publish.

JavaScript Functions. 

if (MyNamespace === undefined) {
    var MyNamespace = {};
}


 MyNamespace.onLoadShowDescription = function(parm_one){

Xrm.Page.ui.setFormNotification("The Description field from the primary contact :  " +
 parm_one ,"INFORMATION","3");

}

Add JavaScript to Form 

  • Open up the Account Form editor
  • Under Home , click on Form Properties
  • Under Event List > Form Libraries, click Add
  • Use Search to find your JavaScript. 
  • Click Add
  • Click Ok , save and Publish.

                                   [account.primarycontactid], 
                                   'description',
