These links are created when a new N:1 relationship is created between two entities. The primary entity in this relationship will get a new left navigation link everytime a new N:1 relationship is created.
We have discussed in the previous post that the code to rename left menu navigation items (links to other N:1 entities) is:
var navItem = document.getElementById(’leftNavMenuItemID’);
navItem.innerHTML = navItem.innerHTML.replace(’>CurrentLinkValue’,’>NewLinkValue’);
So for example:
var navLeftItem = document.getElementById(’navContactsMenuItem’); // this will look for the element contact in the left menu of an account form
navLeftItem .innerHTML = navItem.innerHTML.replace(’>Contacts’,’>Employees’); //This will rename Contacts to Employees in the Account form
Now, to Hide specific links in the left menu, you can use the following script:
// Hide left menu navigation links on an entity form
var navLeftItem = document.getElementById(’navContactsMenuItem’);
navLeftItem .style.display = ‘none’;
This script will be in the OnLoad event of the form of the entity that you want to hide links created on the left handside of this entity form.
