How to create dynamic images in Crm 2011 on-premise RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want guidance as well as help here. I am creating a customization where an entity is supposed to have dynamic images. Its an image of a floor and when I click on the floor, it should open up to show me an image of floor wings and from floor wings to rooms in the wings and from there to particular rooms. The rooms should have indicators showing whether the bed in the room is empty or occupied (e.g red for occupied and green for empty). These indicators are the one that needs to be updated based on values in a form. 

    I am absolutely lost on how to proceed on this and even if it can be achieved in CRM or not. Any guidance and help would be deeply appreciated.

  • Hi Hamzak,

    It sounds like you need to use a web resource to give the functionality you are seeking.

    Have a read http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg309473.aspx#BKMK_CapabilitiesOfWebResources

    It should give you an idea of who you can extend the UI using HYML and Siilverlight

  • I was thinking of using HTML5 and javascript. But I have some reservations against HMTL 5 and whether it is supported as web resource in CRM 2011 0n-premise because I read that its not completely supported. 

    Plus Do you think I need separate entities for Room, Floors, Wings etc.? I was thinking about having one entity with these as fields on the form
