Dynamics CRM - Loading Dependent JS File on Ribbon button on Home Page.

 Haven't blogged for an awfully long time. I keep meaning too as we have worked on some really interesting things recently but I guess time is a big factor. 

Anyway, something I was trying today which took me a while to figure out was I wanted to create a custom ribbon button to show on both the account form page and account home (list page). 

Using the excellent ribbon workbench editor makes this a doddle but I came across an issue where my JS Method used for the button click was reliant on another JS web resource. This worked fine on the form page as I was able to load the dependent JS file directly onto the page. 

However,  I couldn't find a way to do this on the home (list page). I spent quite a while playing around with workbecheditor I knew we could create multiple JavaScript actions on the button to call functions from two different web resources but I didn't have a function to call. I first tried to leave this blank but got an error message. I was even thinking maybe I create an additional function which does nothing just to get the web resource to load onto the page. 

In the end, the simple solution was to enter NAN as the function name. This allowed me to load both web resources onto the page and only call the one function. 

Simple when you know-how eh!.

  1. my partner and I have been trying for a baby for over two years now, We were going to a fertility clinic for about 5 months before somebody at baby center told us to contact this spell caster who is so powerful, We contacted him at this email; or Facebook at priest.babaka , for him to help us, then we told him our problem, he told us that we will conceive once we follow his instructions ,but after two years of trying we were at a point where we were willing to try anything. And I'm glad we came to Priest Babaka, Because his pregnancy spell cast and herbal remedy help us, and I honestly believe him, and his gods really helped us as well, I am thankful for all he has done. contact him via email: or Facebook at priest.babaka if you are trying to have a baby or want your lover back. he has powers to do it, he has done mine
