It has always been possible in Sage CRM to share client side code between screens. In Sage CRM we could do this by using a shared external script library.
For example if we wanted a set of business rules to be available in both the PersonBoxLong screen and the PersonBoxDedupe screen then we could add the following HTML to the custom content box of each screen
The path used assumes that the shared file 'personrules.js' exists in the custompages folder underneath the systems web folder WWWRoot.
There is a folder under the WWWRoot, called js.
The files which are included here are deployed automatically to the client.
You can see this if you view the source of any Sage CRM screen.
References to the files are automatically added to each page header including dynamic workflow pages, ASP pages and .NET dll generated pages for Custom Entities.
We can create our own Custom Pages and have these added automatically to all screens.
There is a custom folder which is designed to hold our custom scripts.
These scripts are then available when ever we need them. They are included into the page headers just like the core CRM js files.
You can see in the image above I have added a file called 'companyrules.js'. The reference to it is shown in the image below.
I will cover the design of script files in another article.
