How do you make custom web applications look and feel like MS CRM 4.0? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just wonder what other people do to make custom web applications look and feel like as if they are a part of MS CRM 4.0. I know there is a style guide with the SDK and that I can use IE developer tool to see style on a CRM form but it’s a lot of work. I also use Telerik RadControls to make the buttons behave like CRM buttons. They don’t look 100% alike but close enough.

    Again what do others do?

  • Hi,

    Yah, you are right, this is lot of work. Microsoft doesn’t provide any style sheets in supported way. Only the style guide and one sample is available. You may access the CRM style sheets in its web application’s folder but there is no help content to tell you how to use it.

     Many partners have developed their own style sheets but nothing is available for public for free as much I know.

    You need to develop the style sheet yourself.
