Prettify Entity Form in CRM 2013

Form changes, to make it better,
JS:
function LoadCSS(path) {
var head = document.getElementsByTagName(‘head’)[0];
var link = document.createElement(‘link’);
link.rel = ‘stylesheet’;
link.type = ‘text/css’;
link.href = path;
link.media = ‘all’;
head.appendChild(link);
}

LoadCSS(“/WebResources/cssfilename”);

CSS:
.ms-crm-InlineEditLabel { white-space: normal !important; }
.ms-crm-InlineEditLabel .ms-crm-Inline-GradientMask { background-image: none !important; filter: none !important; }

Stephanus' Blog

You may find the look and feel of entity forms in CRM 2013 a bit too plain.

The following customisation attempts to “prettify” them using CSS loaded using JavaScript.

What the CSS does:

  1. give a background colour and borders to the form header to make a better distinction between header and body,
  2. give borders to sub-grids on the form to make them more prominent, and
  3. make long field labels drop into the second line instead of fade out (as highlighted in yellow).

I have tested this to work with Internet Explorer (8-10), Chrome, and Outlook.

The code is provided as-is, please use at your own risk.

Before (standard CRM):

JavaScript code for loading the CSS – simply update the cssfilename below and  include the JavaScript file in your form, or include it in your existing JavaScript library:
