Add more than 8 tabs on CRM form : *** Unsupported Customization ****

Everyone of us who have used MS CRM would have noticed that you can't create more than 8 tabs on a form.
There is a way to overcome this and add more tabs or limit that to less tabs.

As suggested in Microsoft CRM Resource center tips, this is how you do it :

In: C:\Program Files\Microsoft CRM Server\CRMWeb\Tools\FormEditor find your formeditor.aspx and select edit. Find the JavaScript variable _iMaxTabs and notice that it is set to 8. Change the value to your desired limitation, save and close, reset IIS and you should then be able to create the additional tabs needed from within the forms customization area.

Remember you are editing MS CRM code page hence it is NOT a supported customization.

Abort event through plugins

Suppose you are writing a pre -event plugin in which you compare to  old and new values and on certain condition would like to cancel the Save or  Update and stop the execution, it was simple in CRM 3 with an Abort() method while in CRM 4, you have to manually raise and throw a  Invalid-Plugin-Exception, while this gives a dirty error message on your MSCRM screen, you can make it better by entering you own Message explaining why the record could not be saved: throw new InvalidPluginExecutionException("Execution has been stopped due to this reason");
