Lock all fields on a form using Javascript- Microsoft Dynamics CRM

Hi Guys,

We all get requirements to lock the whole form to stop people from editing the record.

There are some out of the box options available to achieve this :

  1. Create a business rule : you can easily create a business and use lock field feature however you will have to select all the field on the form one by one – for .e.g if you have 50 fields on the form, you will have to add action for all of them. Moreover another limitation is if a field is removed from the form – you business rule will stop working.
  2. We all know if record is status is set to inactive – form become uneditable but in this scenarios we want to keep the record but uneditable.

Therefore, we come down to our final easy solution to tackle all problems above, the Javascript. Have a look on the below code :

 function disableFormFields()

{

       Xrm.Page.ui.controls.forEach(function (control, index) {

           var controlType = control.getControlType();

           if (controlType != “iframe” && controlType != “webresource” && controlType != “subgrid”)

           {

               control.setDisabled(true);

           }

       });

}

above code takes the control of the form directly rather then of each field & locks all of them. Just call the function on Onload , I have used this on my form and it looks like below:

lockfield

 

Now you can definitely add your own logic into this code for .e.g you put a if condition to check some value based on which you want to lock all fields and another things if you need to leave some fields unlocked you can again you a if condition , check the value and use below

just add the below code to above code :

if (crmfield = abc)

{

Xrm.Page.ui.controls.get(“CrmFieldShcemaname1”).setDisabled(false);

Xrm.Page.ui.controls.get(“CrmFieldShcemaNam2”).setDisabled(false);

Xrm.Page.ui.controls.get(“CrmFieldShcemaNam2”).setDisabled(false);

}

 

hope this helps you!

cheers
