Changing 'New' button behaviour for an entity. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using Dynamics version 4.0. 

    I've created a new Dynamics entity and an ASP.NET extension providing a wizard used to create this entity. I'd like to ensure that the only way a user can create this entity is via the wizard. 

    Is it possible to;

    a) Disable or hide the 'New' button for an entity so that I can then add a button to the entity toolbar using ISV.Config that opens the wizard.


    b) Change the behaviour of the 'New' button so that it opens the wizard?

  • Hi,

    After googled around, i found the "unsupported" customization way to hide the "new" button. I would like to quote from Jim Wang blog :

    "You can't just say: crmForm.all.regardingobjectid.ShowNewButton = 0; it doesn't work. But what you can do is in the onLoad() event, use attachEvent method to attach a setadditionalparams event for the regardingobjectid. Again, those methods are all unsupported customisations, however, those are widely used in the Web development."

    Please refer to this blog for details :


    hope this helps,

    hadi teo.
