Dynamic Values in CRM Dialog Javascript

Within CRM there have been many times while using javascript that I have needed to interact with the user in small ways. For this, I have found that alertDialog and confirmDialog are very useful. Obviously, the interaction is nothing more than an acknowledgment and a yes/no response respectively, but it changes the experience from only interacting with the page which can be helpful. Most of the time I have just used a hard-coded value in the message on my dialogs, such as “Do you want to use the value from field X for field Y?” Recently, I wanted to see if I could change it up to include the actual value within the message to make it easier for the user to make an informed decision.

I never found anything explicitly showing the ability to add a dynamic value/variable in the message, so I had to try it out for myself. It is simple enough in that the message is just a string and as long as you have your variable passed as a string they can be concatenated.

function billStateCode() {

var billStateValue = Xrm.Page.getAttribute(“billstate”).getValue();

if (billStateValue != null) {


‘Would you like to use the state “‘ + billStateValue + ‘” from the billing address for the shipping address?’,

function () {

//action when confirmed


function () {

//action when canceled
