Define ribbon actions

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013, Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online

Define the actions to be performed by a command bar or ribbon control in a <CommandDefinition> (RibbonDiffXml) element together with rules that control whether the control is enabled or visible in the ribbon.

A Ribbon control can perform two types actions and may include multiple actions:

  • JavaScript Functions: A <JavaScriptFunction> (RibbonDiffXml) element references a function defined in a Script Web resource.

  • Open a URL: The ribbon opens a URL using the value from an Address attribute in the <Url> (RibbonDiffXml) element. Additional parameters can pass information about how what querystring parameters are passed and the mode in which the window opens.

    You have several options to pass parameters to a URL using the ribbon. More information: Pass parameters to a URL by using the ribbon

Use the following elements to define data to pass to your custom action:

<BoolParameter> (RibbonDiffXml)
Specifies a value with a Boolean data type that may be passed as a parameter.

<CrmParameter> (RibbonDiffXml)
Represents data retrieved from the Microsoft Dynamics CRM application that may be passed as a parameter. More information: Pass Microsoft Dynamics CRM data from a page as a parameter to Ribbon Actions

<DecimalParameter> (RibbonDiffXml)
Specifies a value with a decimal data type that may be passed as a parameter.

<IntParameter> (RibbonDiffXml)
Specifies a value with an integer data type that may be passed as a parameter.

<StringParameter> (RibbonDiffXml)
Specifies a value with a string data type that may be passed as a parameter.

When parameters are passed to a <Url> (RibbonDiffXml) element they are passed as a query string. Therefore, they must include a name value to represent the ”key” in the query string key/value pair.

Parameters passed to a <JavaScriptFunction> (RibbonDiffXml) do not require a name but they must be included in the order expected by the function and be of the correct data type.
