Execute workflow using javascript in CRM 2011

In this article, i am going to explain how to execute workflow using javascript code. You only need to assign your workflow id to "workflowId" variable


function RunWorkflow() {
    var _return = window.confirm('Are you want to execute workflow.');
    if (_return) {
        var url = Xrm.Page.context.getServerUrl();
        var entityId = Xrm.Page.data.entity.getId();
        var workflowId = '541B45C9-3F88-4448-9690-2D4A365C3172';
        var OrgServicePath = "/XRMServices/2011/Organization.svc/web";
        url = url + OrgServicePath;
        var request;
        request = "<s:Envelope xmlns:s=\"http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/\">" +
                      "<s:Body>" +
                        "<Execute xmlns=\"http://schemas.microsoft.com/xrm/2011/Contracts/Services\" xmlns:i=\"http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance\">" +
                          "<request i:type=\"b:ExecuteWorkflowRequest\" xmlns:a=\"http://schemas.microsoft.com/xrm/2011/Contracts\" xmlns:b=\"http://schemas.microsoft.com/crm/2011/Contracts\">" +
                            "<a:Parameters xmlns:c=\"http://schemas.datacontract.org/2004/07/System.Collections.Generic\">" +
                              "<a:KeyValuePairOfstringanyType>" +
                                "<c:key>EntityId</c:key>" +
                                "<c:value i:type=\"d:guid\" xmlns:d=\"http://schemas.microsoft.com/2003/10/Serialization/\">" + entityId + "</c:value>" +
                              "</a:KeyValuePairOfstringanyType>" +
                              "<a:KeyValuePairOfstringanyType>" +
                                "<c:key>WorkflowId</c:key>" +
                                "<c:value i:type=\"d:guid\" xmlns:d=\"http://schemas.microsoft.com/2003/10/Serialization/\">" + workflowId + "</c:value>" +
                              "</a:KeyValuePairOfstringanyType>" +
                            "</a:Parameters>" +
                            "<a:RequestId i:nil=\"true\" />" +
                            "<a:RequestName>ExecuteWorkflow</a:RequestName>" +
                          "</request>" +
                        "</Execute>" +
                      "</s:Body>" +
                    "</s:Envelope>";

        var req = new XMLHttpRequest();
        req.open("POST", url, true)
        // Responses will return XML. It isn't possible to return JSON.
        req.setRequestHeader("Accept", "application/xml, text/xml, */*");
        req.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "text/xml; charset=utf-8");
        req.setRequestHeader("SOAPAction", "http://schemas.microsoft.com/xrm/2011/Contracts/Services/IOrganizationService/Execute");
        req.onreadystatechange = function () { assignResponse(req); };
        req.send(request);
    }
}

function assignResponse(req) {
    if (req.readyState == 4) {
        if (req.status == 200) {
            alert('successfully executed the workflow');
        }
    }
}

Expand only selected tab using java script in CRM 2011 (After RU12)


In this article i am going to explaining how to expand only selected tab from left side navigation links and other tab will collapsed

you need to call this "SetTabonClick" javascript function on your form onload event to auto expand and collapse tabs from left side navigation links


ffunction SetTabonClick() {
    var tabs = Xrm.Page.ui.tabs.get();
    for (var i in tabs) {
        var tab = tabs[i];
        var tabName = tab.getName();
        var tabindex = 'tab' + i;
        var tabindexTab = 'tab' + i + 'Tab';
        toggleTabDisplayState(tabName, tabindex, tabindexTab);
    }
}
function toggleTabDisplayState(tabName, tabindex,tabindexTab) {
    var link = document.getElementById(tabindexTab); //tab1Tab
    link.onclick = function () {
    Mscrm.Details.loadArea(this, 'areaForm');$find('crmForm').GetTab($get(tabindex, $get('crmForm')), true);
     
        var tabs = Xrm.Page.ui.tabs.get();
        for (var i in tabs) {
            var tab = tabs[i];
            if (tab.getName() == tabName) {
                tab.setDisplayState("expanded");
            }
            else {
                tab.setDisplayState("collapsed");
            }
        }
    }
}
