Disable Sub Grid record buttons in ribbon based on Parent record’s value in CRM 2011.

Hi,

Recently we had a requirement to disable Add New and Edit button of a sub grid record based on parent record’s attribute value.

For this we first need to add a new EnableRule and pass the id of the parent record to a custom function that will use this value to get value of the form and pass true and false accordingly.

FirstPrimaryItemId CRMParameter will pass the id of the parent record.

<EnableRule Id="new.new_fcm_child.EnableRule2.EnableRule">
 <CustomRule FunctionName="DisableButton" Library="$webresource:new_myScript" Default="true">
 <CrmParameter Value="FirstPrimaryItemId" />
 </CustomRule>
 </EnableRule>

Adding this EnableRule to existing CommandDefinitions

<RibbonDiffXml>
 <CustomActions />

 <RibbonTemplates Id="Mscrm.Templates"></RibbonTemplates>

 <CommandDefinition Id="Mscrm.AddNewRecordFromSubGridStandard">

The JavaScript code

// function to disable related record
 function DisableButton(id) {

 //CRM Server Url:
 var result = true;
 var serverUrl = Xrm.Page.context.getServerUrl();

// OData Call to get the data
 var ServiceRequestQuery = "new_CustomEntitySet?$select=attr1,attr2&$filter=attrId eq guid'" + id + "'";
 var ServiceRequestUrl = serverUrl + "/XRMServices/2011/OrganizationData.svc/" + ServiceRequestQuery;
 // make synchronous call
 var ServiceRequest= syncODataCall(ServiceRequestUrl);
 // get the option set value
 if (ServiceRequest[0].attr1 != null && ServiceRequest[0].attr2 != null) {
 var attr1Value = ServiceRequest[0].attr1.Value;
 var attr2Value = ServiceRequest[0].attr2 .Value;

if (attr1Value != "863600004" && attr2Value == "279640002") {
 result = false;
 }
 else {
 result = true;
 }
 }
 return result;
 }

// function to make synchronous oData call
 function syncODataCall(odataSelect) {
 var request = new XMLHttpRequest();
 request.open("GET", odataSelect, false);
 request.setRequestHeader("Accept", "application/json");
 request.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/json; charset=utf-8");
 request.send();
 var objJQuery = JSON.parse(request.responseText);
 return objJQuery.d.results;
 }

Hope it helps

1 thought on “Disable Sub Grid record buttons in ribbon based on Parent record’s value in CRM 2011.”

  1. We are trying to open the Quick create form (instead of the main form) when user click on the + button from the subgrid . unfortunately it always opens the main form.

    Can you please suggest what are we doing wrong.

    Since the + button was not available when we created the relations, we added the button using ribbon workbench , and gave the command as “Mscrm.AddNewRecordFromSubGridStandard &
    Mscrm.GridRibbonActions.addNewFromSubGridStandard”

    Can you please suggest
