Image Gallery Utility for Dynamics CRM

In our earlier article we have demonstrated how we can fetch images attached to notes, working on the same requirement we have enhanced our examples to develop an image gallery utility to see all the images attached to notes. Here is the complete code for this utility:

<!--This is a Image Gallery utility, which can be used with any entity which have
relationship with Notes, this web resource will show all the images attached to notes -->
    < html > < head >
    < style type = "text/css" >

    .left - div {
        display: inline - block;
        cursor: pointer;
    }
    .right - div {
        cursor: pointer;
        display: inline - block;
    } < /style>  < meta charset = "utf-8" >
    < /head><body style="-ms-zoom: 1;">
    < script src = "../../ClientGlobalContext.js.aspx" > < /script>
    < script src = "../Script/SDK.REST.js" type = "text/javascript" > < /script> < script type = "text/javascript" >
//variables
var currentImage = 0;
var img = document.createElement("IMG");
var images = new Array;
var TotalImages = 0;
var SectionName;
var TabName;
document.onreadystatechange = function() {
        if (document.readyState == "complete") {
            //get query parameters
            var queryParam = GetGlobalContext().getQueryStringParameters().data;
            var fields = queryParam.split(",");
            TabName = fields[0];
            SectionName = fields[1];
            //hide control in case form create
            if (isformtypeCreate())
                showImageGalery(TabName, SectionName, false)
            else {
                showImageGalery(TabName, SectionName, true)
                getnotesImages();
            }
        }
    }
    //check for form create mode
function isformtypeCreate() {
    if (window.parent.Xrm.Page.ui.getFormType() == 1) //create mode
        return true;
    else
        return false;
}
//hide/show image gallery
function showImageGalery(tabname, sectionname, flag) {
    window.parent.Xrm.Page.ui.tabs.get(tabname).sections.get(sectionname).setVisible(flag);
}
//get images from notes
function getnotesImages() {
    var regardingObjectId = window.parent.Xrm.Page.data.entity.getId();
    var entitySchemaName = "Annotation";
    var odataQuery = "?$select=AnnotationId,DocumentBody,MimeType&" +
        "$filter=ObjectId/Id eq guid'" + regardingObjectId +
        "' and IsDocument eq true and startswith(MimeType,'image/') ";
    if (typeof(SDK) != "undefined") {
        SDK.REST.retrieveMultipleRecords(entitySchemaName, odataQuery, getnotesImagesCallback, function(error) {
            alert(error.message);
        }, function() {});
    } else {
        alert("REST.SDK library is not available");
    }
}
//callback method
function getnotesImagesCallback(resultSet) {
    if (resultSet.length > 0) {
        TotalImages = resultSet.length;
        for (i = 0; i < resultSet.length; i++) {
            var mimeType = resultSet[i].MimeType;
            var body = resultSet[i].DocumentBody;
            images[i] = "data:" + mimeType + ";base64," + body;
        }
        changeImage(0);

    } else
        showImageGalery(TabName, SectionName, false);
}
//change image
function changeImage(counter) {
      currentImage += counter;
    if (currentImage != TotalImages) {
        if (currentImage < 0)
            currentImage = 0;
    } else {
        currentImage = 0;
    }
    img.src = images[currentImage];
    document.getElementById('imageGallery').appendChild(img);
}

< /script> < div >

< input onclick = "getnotesImages()"
alt = "Reload"
type = "image"
src = "../Image/Refresh.png" >
    < input class = "left-div"
alt = "Go Next"
onclick = "changeImage(-1);"
type = "image"
src = "../Image/Back.png" >
    < input class = "right-div"
alt = "Go Back"
onclick = "changeImage(1);"
type = "image"
src = "../Image/Next.png" >
    < /div>  < div id = "imageGallery"

    < /div></body >
    < /html>

    Is there anything that has changed in regards to using this in Dynamics 365 Online? I’ve tried getting this to work, aswell as the previous post this refers to, without luck. My result is like this http://imgur.com/BI46hRY

    Any suggestions as to what I’ve done wrong?
