Update icon for "Processes", "Business Management", "Customization" & "Data Management" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I would like to update the 32x32 & 16x16 icons for "Processes", "Business Management", "Customization" & "Data Management" for Dynamics CRM 2013. Is there anyway I can achieve this? I think we may be able to do it via XML but any help/instructions will be appreciated.

    Thanks!!

  • Hi,

    Like you said, those Icons are belong to OOTB entities, features. I think there're 2 ways:

    1. Go to your CRMWeb folder: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics CRM\CRMWeb\_imgs and update the corresponding images there.

    You can easily track down the image name of those icon using IE developer and SDK style guide (sdk\resources\styleguide).

    2. Upload your custom image into solution.

    Use customization file XML to change all the ribbon, entity image, etc...

    Personally, I like 1st one if you're using On-Premise CRM.

    Hope it helps.

  • Hi Linh,

    Thank you for the reply.

    For Processes, I replaced my "ico_18_4703.png" with my custom image in App server>C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics CRM\CRMWeb\_imgs. I publishing all but I didn't see the icon/image change in the web site. Any idea why this is happening?

    Thanks!

  • Hi,

    Sorry for late reply.

    It seems MS use image strip to decrease the time loading.

    So you need to modify the image strip, not the single png file.

    +It will be easier if you have photoshop skills....

    +For solution #2, you can check Ribbon Workbench tool which is suggested by Prabhu G .

    Hope it helps.

  • Hi,

    It would be great if I can have detail instruction on how to change 16x16 icons for "Processes", "Business Management", "Customization" & "Data Management" via Ribbon Work Bench.

    Thanks!

  • Hi,

    You don't need any instruction of using Ribbon Work Bench. The program which is a CRM solution itself is very self explained and straight forward, just follow its steps.

    Basically, you can follow these steps:

    1. Upload new icon to your solution.

    2. Use your tool to modify the existing Ribbon with new Icon

    3. NOTE: You need to kept their original function or else the button does not response when you click it. Use your SDK to check the OOTB Ribbon Diff \sdk\samplecode\cs\client\ribbon\exportribbonxml.

    PS: That tool can only modify ribbon button, it can not change other icon some where else, such as:

    1. Entity icon (which is in solution, navigation, forms, etc...) you need to modify it manually (http://crmdm.blogspot.com/2011/03/how-to-change-define-icons-of-custom.html).

    2. Maybe somewhere else...

    Hope it helps.
