Many of the controls in Infor CRM (Saleslogix) are composite controls. This means, that a single control you add to a quickform, such as a picklist, address control, date picker, etc, are rendered on the web as multiple controls that make up that single control. On top of that, many of these controls are transformed […]

Programmatically Setting Custom Conditions for the Lookup Results Group in Infor CRM (Saleslogix) Web
The Lookup Results Group in Infor CRM displays a list of records matching a particular set of conditions. Typically, the user performs a search and the search conditions set the results of the Lookup Results group. However, it is possible to programmatically set these conditions at runtime.

Pre-Compiling and […]
Binding controls in Infor CRM (Saleslogix) Web forms will also automatically disable controls based on field level security for the current user. But what if you want to override that behavior?

In the Infor CRM (Saleslogix) Mobile client, dates in group lists are displayed as relative dates. You’ll see dates in the group list like “10 days ago”, “3 months ago”, or “a year ago”, and so on.

This article will outline tips to consider when working with mobile customizations in Infor CRM (Saleslogix) and your customizations are not showing up. The first, and most important thing to know, is whether your customizations are even getting loading by the browser.

There are a few different ways to pass values or objects between forms in the Infor CRM (Saleslogix) Web client.

There is a small change needed for mobile customizations in Infor CRM (Saleslogix) Mobile version 3.3 and higher. It's a small change, but one that will prevent your customizations from loading if you don't make it.
When customizing the Infor CRM (Saleslogix) Mobile client, it's common for the ApplicationModule to grow very large as more and more customizations get added into it.

Problem Showing All Area, Category, and Issue Values in Infor CRM (Saleslogix) Mobile And How to Fix
There is an issue with the Infor CRM (Saleslogix) Mobile client where, if you have a large list of Area, Category, & Issue values, not all of them will show in the lookup. This is caused by the fact that the out of the box AreaCategoryIssue lookup will retrieve only 200 rows, and, then filter the distinct list of these 200 rows to show the available area, category, or issue values. The problem comes into play when you have more than 200 rows ...
I've had a few posts lately covering the ComboBox control in the Infor CRM (Saleslogix) Web Client. The ComboBox itself isn't too exciting. However, as I've mentioned in the previous posts, the fact that the Infor CRM ComboBox renders as a Dijit Select form widget makes it so much more powerful due to the fact that you can use it as a Dijit Select widget and not just as an ASP.NET control. In this post, we'll look at changing the ...
