Open new window on some event

i was just trying to open new service activity window on some event  & and after that i was trying to set customers according to the parent contact id

i was just trying with‘/activities/serviceappointment/edit.aspx’);

and i write following code to access paraent contactid look on form load event of service activity window.

// to create lookup array

var customer_lookup=new Array();

// to check for new form

if (crmForm.FormType == 1)
 // Check to confirm that the window.opener is present.
 if (window.opener)
  // Get the values of the parent form.
  var oParentCrmForm = window.opener.document.all.crmForm;
//To check Window.opner is calim entity or not

//10000 objectTypecode for my custom entity you can query ur organization database to check your custom entity’s objectTypecode

if (oParentCrmForm && oParentCrmForm.ObjectTypeCode == 10000)
var customer_lookupItem= new Object();[0].id;


but i got one confusion when i was trying to open new service activity from action menu i was getting the customers name but when i was trying to open new service activity through my custom button it was not populating …..

after some time i compare both the url Oppsssss i was missing organization name as i was working on multiorganization …….

so i changed my URL fo‘/’+ORG_UNIQUE_NAME+‘/activities/serviceappointment/edit.aspx’);

and finally it was working ……….

Hide ms crm picklist items

Today i got requirement to hide some picklist option based on customer type selection(in my case 🙂 ) here is how i did this

like we have one picklist for customer option “A” and “B” and we have a picklist crmpicklistfacility with different facilities like

1 “Create new User”

2 “Modify User”

3 “Delete User”

now we want to present picklist option 1,3 for customer A and 2 for customer B.

we do like this in javascript

var crmpickObj=crmForm.all.facility;





else if(Cust_type==”2″)
