HOW TO GET MICROSOFT DYNAMICS 365 FORM TYPE IN JAVASCRIPT

If you're working on forms within Microsoft Dynamics 365 and seeking to understand how to create different types of forms - such as Main Form, Quick View Form, Quick Create Form, or Card Form- and how to get form types using JavaScript, this post is the perfect guide. To create a compelling narrative, having a clear understanding of form types is crucial, as each one reflects specific functionality or use.


To get the type of form using JavaScript, the function formContext.ui.getFormType() can be used; the function returns a number that indicates the type of form in question. The post presents a handy table listing the different Dynamics 365 form types (Undefined, Create/Quick Create, Update, Read-Only, Disabled, and Bulk Edit) and their respective JavaScript return values. Additionally, a JavaScript function is specified that displays a popup message with the form type.


By using the techniques mentioned in the post, you can change the behavior of the form based on its type that will be reflected for end-users. Overall, the article is an excellent introductory guide for Microsoft Dynamics 365 users who are seeking to master the art of working with different form types and advance their JavaScript skills in the process.

Hope This Helps!
