Dynamics 365 v9 JavaScript Validator in XrmToolBox

If you use XrmToolBox already, make sure you look for the below tool

  1. In Tool Library, search for Dynamics 365 JavaScript Validator and you’ll find this tool already.

  2. Once you find it, it’s pretty easy to use it.
    You’ll find it in the list of your tools as below



    Then, it’ll just Retrieve all the Resources first. This will take a minute or two depending on your environment.

  3. Once done, it’s best practice to already add all the code you want to analyze in 1 solution in your Dynamics 365 environment like so

  4. Now, in the tool , open the same solution so that you only focus on the JS files you need to work with.

  5. Once you open it up, you’ll find all you files listed below. Just double click one of them and you’ll find what all needs to be changed.

  6. Once you work your way up in the file by replacing the deprecated code, you can reload the solution again and find that there are no longer any warnings like on my other file below
