entitygrid
If list calls proj_status "selection as gif"
add folder and images
Create calls to asp pages from menus
Admin>Customization>System>find
Admin>Customisation>System>new
Create Tab bar for new entity(with same
name as entity)
Project
Create asp pages
projectnew.asp
projectsummary.asp
projectfind.asp
projectlist.asp
Create workflow
project workflow
Naming Conventions
Suggested Naming Convention for new
Entity Blocks
Screens
– entityWebPicker
– entityDetailBox
– entitySearchBox
– entityTopContent
Lists

Typical Tasks
Create a List Page
Create an Insert Page
Create an Edit Page
Handling deletes
Create a Search Page
List Page Structure
var myBlock = CRM.GetBlock('opportunitylist');
var myRecordId = CRM.GetContextInfo('company','comp_companyid');
var Arg = 'oppo_primarycompanyid='+myRecordId
CRM.AddContent(myBlock.Execute(Arg));
Response.Write(CRM.GetPage());
Edit Page Structure
var myBlock = CRM.GetBlock('OpportunityDetailBox');
var myRecordId = CRM.GetContextInfo('Opportunity','oppo_opportunityid');
//var myRecordId = Request.QueryString('oppo_opportunityid');
var myRecord = CRM.FindRecord('Opportunity','oppo_opportunityid='+myRecordId);
CRM.AddContent(myBlock.Execute(myRecord));
Response.Write(CRM.GetPage());
Adding Buttons
//Example to call an inbuilt CRM action e.g 130 is find company
var strFindCompanyButton = CRM.Button('search','search.gif', CRM.Url(130));
//Example to call a Custom ASP page
var strCallASPButton = CRM.Button('ASP','save.gif', CRM.Url('myPage.asp'));
//Example to show control of buttons display on screen using entity security
//The following button is only available for users with insert rights on company entity (see security)
var strNewCompanySecurityButton = CRM.Button('New','newcompany.gif', CRM.Url(1200),'COMPANY','INSERT');
//Example to show how to build a custom help button
var helpFile = "FI_SearchingForCompany.htm";
var strCustomHelpButton =CRM.Button("Help", "help.gif", "javascript:window.open('/"+sInstallName+"/help/EN/Main
Menu/Default_CSH.htm#User/"+helpFile+"', 'HELPWIN','scrollbars=yes,toolbar=no,menubar=no,resizable=yes,top=200,
width=600,height=400');");
re = /href/gi;
strCustomHelpButton = strCustomHelpButton.replace(re, "onclick");
myBlock.AddButton(strFindCompanyButton);
myBlock.AddButton(strCallASPButton);
myBlock.AddButton(strNewCompanySecurityButton);
myBlock.AddButton(strCustomHelpButton);
Add Page Structure
if(CRM.Mode ==View)
{
CRM.Mode = Edit;
}
var myBlock = CRM.GetBlock('opportunitydetailbox');
var myRecord = CRM.CreateRecord('Opportunity');
myRecord.oppo_stage= 'Lead';
myRecord.oppo_status= 'In Progress';
myRecord.oppo_primarycompanyid= CRM.GetContextInfo('Company','comp_companyid');
myRecord.oppo_primarypersonid= CRM.GetContextInfo('person','pers_personid');
CRM.AddContent(myBlock.Execute(myRecord));
Response.Write(CRM.GetPage());
