If you are like me when I am programming with CRM 2011 I am always searching the SDK to get some help with what I’m doing.
I do like the SDK and for the most part I think it is well written. My main gripe is it’s format.
CHM files only let you go back one page and don’t let you open multiple pages.
This can be a bit of problem when I want to open lots of SDK pages on LINQ programming.
The answer is to use the online version of the SDK
I saw a project on codeplex today called CRM 2011 Style Templates. I was intrigued to see what it was about which then lead me to Darren Liu’s blog, you can see the article here
the codeplex site is here
The idea is appealing because I have had a few customer complain how boring looking CRM can be. I think one of the major enhancements in the future should be the ability to add a theme to CRM, at least change the colours.
for this project he has added 3 style templates, he describes it as such
This is the first version of the style templates, I have included three html forms which they are the main CRM form, main CRM area form and the lookup form.
The only danger here is these type of changes are not support by Microsoft, so if anything goes wrong with your CRM system, Microsoft won’t be keen to help you out. Saying that you should be able to swap the original files back in and no harm will be done.
