CRM 2013 - Javascript Functions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have created a javascript function that will read the data that is in the field Account Name.

    I then have a different piece of javascript for when the data in account Name is changed.

    What I want is for the data in account name is changed that the javascript there calls the first bit of javascript so that a message box can appear stating the old account name will be changed to the new account name

    How do I do this?

    Thanks, Shaun

  • Step 1: Create a global variable as ACCName

    Step 2: call a js function on onload of form and

    function

    {

    ACCName= old value

    }

    Step 3: Call another js function onchange of name

    funtion onchange()

    {

    alert("Old name:"+ACCName + "New name:"+ your new name);

    }


    Hope this helps. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Santosh Bhagat If this post answers your question, please click "Mark As Answer" on the post and "Vote as Helpful"

    How exactly do you declare a local variable?

  • Got it working, thanks for your help

    If anyone else wants to know to declare a global variable you simply don't define it

    so normally you would have

    var AccountName = ... ;

    To have a global variable its simply

    AccountName = .....;
