What is Issue?
MS CRM don’t provide any color picker field out-of-box.
As I already had a blog written for color picker using web resources and spectrum libraries-Color Picker in MS CRM ?
But it is web resource which needs much efforts to match to field styles in crm.
I have created the custom pcf control (PowerApps Custom Control). This control can be used for the single line text fields.
Depends on browser it appears in supported way-
On Browsers other than IE-
In IE it will appear as –
If you want to use it you form you can download ready custom control from here-ColorPickerSolution.zip
How to use it-
1. Import downloaded solution in CRM-
2. Create single line of Text field in any entity you want and add it on form.
3. when adding to form select field, click on change field property and in controls tab add custom control “ColorPicker”-
4.Save and publish the form.
Now the control is available and ready on form to use.
You can also download the source code from here-ColorPickerSource.zip
To work with source code you need some of the basic setup in your computer-
1. Nodejs installed
2. VS or Visual Studio Code installed
3.Understanding of below commands-
pac pcf init --namespace yourNamespace --name yourControlName --template field npm install npm run build npm start pac solution init --publisher-name yourPubliserName --publisher-prefix yourPrefix pac solution add-reference --path "pcfproj folder path" msbuild /t:restore msbuild
Hope this will help…
Enjoy Ms CRM!!!
