<BODY onload=redirectAspxPage(); contentEditable=true>
<SCRIPT type=text/javascript src=”../ClientGlobalContext.js.aspx”></SCRIPT>

<SCRIPT type=text/javascript>
function redirectAspxPage() {

var userid = window.parent.Xrm.Page.context.getUserId();

window.location.href = “http://YOUR_URL/YOUR_PAGE.aspx?userid= ” + userid;
