How to change icons in grid dynamically RRS feed

  • Question

  • In CRM 2011, is there a way to show icons in the grid view and change them dynamically? We have a requirement to show "green, yellow, red" stop lights for each record in the grid view depending on the record's status.

  • The only Icons that show up in a native CRM 2011 View are related to the entity type.  You cannot change these dynamically per record (unless you want to risk non-compliance).  In order to do what you're talking about you would need to create an HTML, aspx, or Silverlight grid control and run it from within an IFrame.  That means you would also need a 'parent' entity with a form to display your grid on.

  • Thankyou JBlaeske. I found a solution at http://weblogs.asp.net/gayanperera/archive/2010/06/30/how-to-change-the-grid-icons-dynamically.aspx.

    This is indeed an unsupported customization but it is very easy to include the customization back in case its gets lost due to an update.
