Using Context Navigation and User Settings in PCF Controls

Using Context Navigation and User Settings in PCF Controls

This post explores how to effectively use context in PCF (Power Apps Component Framework) controls. PCF controls offer many features, including the ability to call Power Apps and Dynamics 365 native functionality, which would otherwise entail using JavaScript and the API. Leveraging context from within a PCF control can be especially useful for building custom controls.

The tutorial starts by creating a new PCF control called SampleXrmControl. From there, it delves into how to access user settings, specifically, the user's language. Understanding language settings is essential when creating multilingual controls. The tutorial also illustrates how to navigate between various pages and forms in the context of a given record. This is particularly useful for accessing additional information or editing existing data.

By the end of this tutorial, you'll have a firm grasp of how to use context to build dynamic and interactive PCF controls that deliver an enhanced user experience and are suitable for a wide range of scenarios.
