Call A Dialog from Ribbon in MSCRM 2011

  function getOrg() {
        ///<summary>
        /// get organisation
        ///</summary>
      
        var Org = "";
        if (typeof GetGlobalContext == "function") {
            var context = GetGlobalContext();
            Org = context.getOrgUniqueName();
        }
        else {
            if (typeof Xrm.Page.context == "object") {
                Org = Xrm.Page.context.getOrgUniqueName();
            }
            else
            { throw new Error("Unable to access Organisation name"); }
        }
       
        return Org;
    }

    function getUser() {
        ///<summary>
        /// get logged in user
        ///</summary>
      
        var User = "";
        if (typeof GetGlobalContext == "function") {
            var context = GetGlobalContext();
            User = context.getUserId();
        }
        else {
            if (typeof Xrm.Page.context == "object") {
                User = Xrm.Page.context.getUserId();
            }
            else
            { throw new Error("Unable to access the UserId"); }
        }
      
        return User;
    }

    function callDialog() {
    
    var url="/" + getOrg() + "/cs/dialog/rundialog.aspx?DialogId=%7bB7D825D7-7EF6-4713-AC11-284546FEB260%7d&EntityName=systemuser&ObjectId=" + getUser();
    window.open(url, "", "status=no,scrollbars=no,toolbars=no,menubar=no,location=no");
    //window.open(url);

    }
The JavaScript Webresource has three function
  • getOrganisation() – to get context organisation
  • getUser()-to get the logged in user
  • callDialog()- will call the dialog. you can change the DialogId to call your own dialog.
This example is using a dialog attached to the user entity, so we don’t need to create any record to run the dialog. The code picks up the logged in user and run the process.
