WebResource name with a dash RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to add an existing HTML control to WebResources in CRM. This control uses a lot of png files with a dash "-" in its name. CRM does not except a dash in a WebResource name.
    A way to work around this is add the png files with a _ instead of a -. Export the solution and edit the customization.xml and change the name back to -. What I have seen so far is that it works fine.

    Is there any known reason (apart from that it might be unsupported) that I should not do that?

  • Have you tried encoding the hyphen using %2D - e.g. instead of my-page.htm, use my%2Dpage.htm ?
