New in 83 - Web Client add-on menu items

Hey, wouldn't it be nice to be able to add my own menu items in the Web Client?  Yes it would and now you can, if you are willing to dirty your hands with a little JavaScript.

The code

This is the add-on that I included in the CustomScripts folder

//It's a good idea to wrap your code in a function to avoid conflict
//overriding existing variables and other addon
var RMVersionListAddon = function () {
    var buttonCaption = "Show all versions";
    var versionListButton = new HP.HPTRIM.Addon.RecordAddonButton({
        caption: buttonCaption,
        clickHandler: function () {
            var cntx = this.context;
            $.getJSON(HPRMWebConfig.virtualDirectory + "HPRMServiceAPI/Record?pageSize=2&q=allVersions:" + cntx.Uri, function (data) {
                if (data.Results && data.Results.length > 1) {
                    // window.location.href = '?t=Record&q=allVersions:' + cntx.Uri;
                    $('#global-search-input').val('allVersions:' + cntx.Uri);

                    var trimApp = window['root'];
          'allVersions:' + cntx.Uri);
                } else {
                    alert("There are no versions for this Record.")

    //Prerender should have the context object
    versionListButton.preRender = function () {
        var record = this.context;
        if (record.RecordRecordType.RecordTypeAllowVersions.Value !== true) {




Don't forget you can swith debugging on to get a better view of your code, like this:

<compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.5" />

New in 83 - PDF and TIF viewing in WebDrawer

New in RM 83

So starts my series on new features in RM 83.  As per usual this is my opinion not an officially sponsored list of 83 features.  As my opinion the choices lean well toward the web side of the playground.  Come back every day or two (or subscribe to the RSS feed) for more.

PDF / TIF Viewing

This video show-cases the new TIF and PDF viewer used within WebDrawer.
