  • Hi,

    You can right click on the button and use 'Customise Command' - and then remove the standard action and replace with your own custom javascript action.

    Hope this helps,

    Scott

  • And how to pass a specific lookup value  to the new form ?

  • You would have to use the Xrm Client API to get the values from the current form context and then pass the values as described in http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg334375.aspx

    Hope this helps,
