<CustomRule> (RibbonDiffXml)

Specifies a rule used with an EnableRule definition that is composed of a reference to a function within a JavaScript library.

<Url> (RibbonDiffXml)

When the CrmParameter is a child of the <Url> (RibbonDiffXml) a Name attribute is required. When the CrmParameter is a child of the <JavaScriptFunction> (RibbonDiffXml) element, the Name attribute is not valid.

noteNote
  • Value attributes referring to a "Primary..." item refer to the record being viewed in the form.

  • Value attributes referring to the "Selected..." item refer to rows selected within a grid.

When a grid is presented within a form or as an associated view the "Primary.." values refer to the record context in which the grid is displayed. This is true as long as the grid is associated with an entity relationship.

When a grid is displayed independently from any entity relationship, such as in the Homepage grid or if a subgrid is added to a form without being associated with an entity relationship, the "Primary..." values will be null.

noteNote
Some CrmParameter values pass an EntityReference object. This object contains the following properties:

  • Id: A string of the GUID Id value for the record.

  • Name: A string of the value of the Primary field for the record.

  • TypeCode: A number representing the unique type of entity for the record.

  • TypeName: A string representing the unique name of the entity for the record.
