Menus in CRM Entities RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    There are different Menus available for different Entities in CRM. Like we have File-> New Campaign .  I hope they are built dynamically based on the Entity. Can I know where these menu information are stored? I sit in Database or any xml file

  • Hi

    The current menu items are in fact hard coded into the application.

    However you can add your own custom menu items using the ISV.config xml file
    To do this you will have to turn on the ISV customizations in the web.config and then modify that xml file.

    The only way I have found to hide the menu items is using a Javascript "Hack".

    You can use this techinque, it is show for removing navigation, but you can find the ID of the menuitem, and hide them this way.

    If you find a more elegant way please let me know, it would be appreciated Smile

    Cheers
