CRM 2011 Style Templates

with 6 comments

I am currently working on a CRM 2011 project and I need to extend CRM to integrate with other systems.  The programming paradigm has shifted from server side programming to client side programming in CRM 2011.  In order to have a seamless integration between the two applications, I reverse engineered the current CRM 2011 CRM form page and created three HTML templates so I can leverage it in my current project.  The reason that I created HTML pages is because CRM 2011 stores all of the components in the web resources. HTML, CSS and Silverlight are the some of the supported components.  I uploaded the source code to CodePlex, you may download and use it at your own discretion.  I hope these templates helps you in your CRM 2011 projects.

  1. For the CRM Lookup Form, you will be getting error when you hover on the buttons. The reason is because you need to update the URL of the handler(.ashx) file to point to your CRM Server. You also can’t put .ashx file to the web resource in CRM 2011, the workarond is to link them to your CRM Server URL.

    So in the Lookup Form html code, look for the following HTML in the header, “http://crm/_common/global.ashx?ver=-339091135”, replace it with “http:// YOUR CRM 2011 Server URL/_common/global.ashx?ver=”
