MS Dynamics CRM Web Resources Basic Starter Page

When creating a Web Resource Page in MS CRM there are some basic parts that I've tend to use in all of my pages. These are all contained in the script block above the body.

User Information:

     UserId = Xrm.Page.context.getUserId();
     UserName = Xrm.Page.context.getUserName();

Query String parameters to drive the page

     QueryStringParameters = Xrm.Page.context.getQueryStringParameters();
     QueryStringParm = "None";
     if (QueryStringParameters["feature"] != null) {

         QueryStringParm = QueryStringParameters["feature"].toString();             

Entity Id  - when you are running in a Form iframe and the entity has been saved.

     EntityId =;
     Id = QueryStringParameters["id"].toString();

Trigger for Query

  document.onreadystatechange = function () {

         if (document.readyState == "complete") {

           // Typically call a query to populate the page


Function to Open a CRM Form in a new window

  function OpenCRMForm(entityName, entityId) {

         var windowOptions = {
             openInNewWindow: true

         Xrm.Utility.openEntityForm(entityName, entityId, null, windowOptions);
