Dynamics: disabling all controls for an attribute

Here is something that does not come up often.. When you have a few controls for the same attribute added to the form, using Xrm.Page.getControl(“<name>”).setDisabled won’t enable/disable all of them – it will only work for the first control on the form. At least in the 8.2 version. If you wanted to do the same… Read More »

Dynamics implementation as beer tasting

  Ryan Maclean made an interesting analogy in his recent post: https://ryannipper.com/2018/07/12/crm-development-as-easy-as-making-a-cup-of-tea/ I’d really recommend reading it; though I’d like to warn you right here.. after reading Ryan’s post, you may find that making tea is not ever going to be simple again.  Actually, you may feel a bit overwhelmed by the potential complexity of… Read More »


  It can’t be solely about Dynamics all the time, so how about Scrum, just for a change? To start with, I’ve been on so many different projects, and a lot of them did claim to be following SCRUM.  But I am just starting to realize, now, how little did I know to believe that… Read More »

Easy Repro: what is it?

  Easy Repro seems to be a bit unusual name for  what is, basically, an automated UI testing framework, since it’s not so much about reproducing the issues as it is about testing various UI scenarios: https://github.com/Microsoft/EasyRepro And I wanted to emphasize it right here. Easy Repro is not a product.. neither it’s a technology..… Read More »

Skipping process initialization on create

We had a scenario where we did not want to initialize a BPF when a record is created – basically, those were records for which it would take some time before anybody would really need to start looking at them. Until that moment, they would be staying “dormant” in the system, and, then, once they’ve… Read More »
