Enable and Disable ribbon custom button RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a very simple scenario, where I have a custom button on dashboard page ribbon of dynamics crm online, ribbon functions in a very simple way like this:

    • On click a new browser window opens
    • On clicking again the browser window loads again.

    What I am required to do is that I want to disable the Custom Ribbon Button when it is clicked and new window is opened, and when new window is closed I want to enable the button again. 

    I am using Ribbon Work Bench for ribbon customization and rule definition. Thanks in advance for any help/guidance.

  • Hi,

    Glad to hear you are using the Ribbon Workbench ;)

    You will need to use a Custom JavaScript action that sets a flag (say 'window.customWindowOpened=true') then make a call to:


    When the window is closed, you should then reset the customWindowOpened flag to false and call refreshRibbon again.

    The magic will be in the Enable Rules - add a custom Enable Rule that calls a JavaScript function that returns the inverted value of the window.customWindowOpened flag.
