I'm trying to migrate an app developed with DevExpress XAF to Dynamics CRM/CDS. This app often uses tabs to display 1:n and n:m collections. See the attached screenshot for a sample.
Is it possible to get a similar layout with the forms builder in Dynamics CRM? It does not seem to be possible to add a tab to a section. Any workarounds?
You can use HTML webresource in new Tab.
Could you please elaborate on this?
Do you means something like this on the Dynamics Entity Form?
This is exactly what I am looking for (with the possibility to add related subgrids to the tabs)
Hereby the link for the variable Dynamics Tab
You cannot add a tab inside a section in CRM form.
As suggested by others, you can definitely drop a web resource to have custom tabs anywhere on the form however please note you will end up doing a lot of design and coding to render sub-grids for 1:N and N:N.
I think you can achieve what you want using Tabs and Reference Panel.
Please note, to take advantage of Dynamics 365 Unified Interface and Performance improvements, you should try and use the out of the box features for form design. When you convert your Dev Express XAF app to CDS, you have to remember you wont be able to replicate the exact layout in CRM. You should rather adopt to CRM UI and try your best to make it look like the XAF app while taking full advantage of UCI by sticking to OOB components as much as you can.
If you definitely have to replicate the XAF UI, I would recommend you look into creating a PCF control rather than going down the webresource path as web resource is not recommended for UCI.
Thank you, Necdet! Nice solution!
But for now I will follow Kokulans approach and use the Reference Panel.
Thank you, Kokulan!
Reference Panel works quite nice, but I will also check the PCF...
