How to use
After installing the solution, all that needs to be done, is to add the web resource file to the form that you want to load the image to.
Below are the instructions on how this is achieved, which looks at adding a signature field to the user form. This is done as follows:
1. Edit the form
In order to allow user to load images for an entity, we need to add the image upload web resource file to the related form. In order to do this, browse to any record in CRM for the entity you wish to allow image upload for, to view the form. Then select the form icon on the ribbon. If you don’t see the form icon then you don’t have sufficient privileges to be able to do this – contact your CRM administrator.
2. Add the editor to the form
First, click to select the section on the form where the image upload will be placed.
We can now add the editor control to the form. On the INSERT tab on the ribbon click the Web Resource button.
Then fill out the properties as shown below. In the Web resource field enter eve_imageloader.html. In the Name and Label fields enter imageloader. Be sure to also check the Pass record object-type code and unique identifier as parameters checkbox. Another setting worth updating is the Number of Rows field on the Formatting tab – will be a good idea to set this to 10 or more rows. Click OK to apply the settings, and to add the editor control to the form.
3. Save and Publish
To make the change available in CRM we need to Save and Publish. So first save the form by clicking the Save button on the ribbon. Once the save has completed, we can publish by clicking the Publish button on the ribbon.
4. Preview your changes
Now when browsing to the form in CRM, you will be able upload images using the newly added control.
Drag and drop to upload an image, or click anywhere within the upload control to select an image to upload..
