Attributes

 

Attribute Description Type Usage

Alt

String or reference to a localized label to display as alternative text.

String

Optional

CacheMenuVersions

Indicates whether the definition for the control should be cached for better performance. Select this value if you do not select PopulateDynamically.

String

Optional

Command

Specifies the ID of the ribbon command for this control.

String

Optional

CommandMenuClose

Specifies the ID of the menu command to run when the menu closes.

String

Optional

CommandMenuOpen

Specifies the ID of the ribbon command to run when the menu opens.

String

CommandType

Valid values:

 

Value Description

General

Not a specific type of command.

OptionSelection

A command that is generated when a user selects one option in an option group.

IgnoredByMenu

A command that is used for controls that should not close the menu when clicked.

Enumeration

Optional

Id

Specifies a unique identifier for the definition of a ribbon element. The strongly recommended naming convention is to use a period to separate the parts of the name like so: [solution identifier].[entity].[ribbon].[function].[element name]. For example: MyISV.account.form.SendToOtherSystem.Button.

Use the {!EntityLogicalName} token in the Id attribute when you are defining a ribbon element that will be used for multiple entities. This will insert the entity logical name into the Id value to make sure that the Id value is globally unique.

For example, if you use MyISV.{!EntityLogicalName}.form.SendToOtherSystem.Button with the account entity, the Id will be MyISV.account.form.SendToOtherSystem.Button. For the contact entity the Id will be MyISV.contact.form.SendToOtherSystem.Button

ImportantImportant
Failing to set a globally unique Id value can cause the ribbon not to display.
