MS CRM 4.0 - Can we manipulate data or control the View with a Plugin?


I was wondering if it was at all possible to execute a plugin when a user "Double Clicks" a record to view such as a Contact record, before the data is sent to the user.

If yes then can we do the following:
1. manipulate some of the data before the user see's it on the view
2. could we enable/disable or control certain fields on the view from within the Plugin

I know we can do this using JavaScript but it would be great if we could do this before the data is sent down the Wire.

Can any of this be done?

With respect to item 1, yes. You will need to write a pre-event plug-in. This is described in the CRM SDK available here:

With respect to item 2, I think not. The way the form is displayed is controlled by the definition of the form in the customization area of CRM. You can also enable/disable fields using Javascript.
