When HTML is opened using JavaScript, it can either open in the same window or a different one. This naturally can create ambiguity for the end-user, as the user can either lose focus or reopen the page, which is not a good practice.


In this blog, we will look at how we can open the model pop up on the click of a button. 





Xrm.Navigation.navigateTo requires two parameters.

  • pageInput
  • navigationOptions

pageInput: Here you define whether you want to open the HTML Web resource or you want to navigate to the entity list(View).

For HTML Web Resource:

  • pageType: “webresource”, //pass this as it is
  • webresourceName: “cf_TestHTMLCustomizations” // The name of the web resource to load.

For entity list:

  • pageType: ” entitylist”, //pass this as it is
  • entityName: “account” // The logical name of the entity.
  • viewId: “00000000-0000-0000-00AA-000010001002″ // Id of view

navigationOptions: Options for navigating to a page: whether to open inline or in a dialog. If you don’t specify this parameter, page is opened inline by default.

Below shown is the Code:

loadHTML = function() {
     var pageInput = {
     pageType: "webresource",
    webresourceName: "cf_TestHTMLCustomizations"
var navigationOptions = {
    target: 2,
    width: 400,
    height: 300,
    position: 1
Xrm.Navigation.navigateTo(pageInput, navigationOptions).then(
    function success() {
     // Handle dialog closed
           console.log("Inside Success");
    function error() {
          Xrm.Navigation.openAlertDialog({ text: error.message });

– Call this function on click of button.

– After doing everything successfully when you will click on button it will open model pop up like below.
