Maximize MS CRM 4.0 pop-up Windows

Recently a customer asked me how to open the PhoneCall window(any window) form in a larger window.  It’s a simple matter of a little bit of JavaScript.

  • Navigate to the main Account form as follows:
    1. Go to Settings
    2. Choose Customization
    3. Choose Customize Entities
    4. Open PhoneCall Entity ( or any entity you want)
    5. Go to Forms and Views
    6. Open Form window
    7. Open the Form Properties window
    8. On the Events tab make sure that OnLoad is highlighted, then click Edit.  Paste the following Javascript code and make sure that the box for Event is enabled is checked.

//resize window to full screen upon opening Account form
window.resizeTo(screen.availWidth, screen.availHeight);

  • (Below is the screenshot of what this should look like.)
  • Save and close the form, then Publish the entity.
