InforCRM 8.3.x Web Client Edit Options Are Missing

After adding a custom bundle to Infor CRM (formerly Saleslogix) in the Application Architect two users were missing the Edit Option on a Manage Mail Options Form that was not affected by the new custom bundle, and one other user still had the Edit Option on the form. So the first thing we checked is the user's roles

Confirming Actions With an "Are you sure?" Prompt in Infor CRM (Saleslogix)

I'm not a huge fan of bugging end users. I figure, if an end user clicked something, he or she meant to click it. However, that's not always the case. It's especially a good idea for destructive actions or for things that will make a lot of changes and you want to make sure before you pass the point of no return. If a user clicks something and you need to confirm the action with some sort of "Are you sure?" prompt, then it m...

Programmatically Using Security Roles and Secured Actions in Infor CRM (Saleslogix)

In most places in the Infor CRM (Saleslogix) web client, it's pretty easy to use security roles. You simply add the role string to an "Applied Security" property and the rest is magic. But what if you need to get more granular than that? What if you need to access the roles at runtime and apply security to something that doesn't have an Applied Security property? What if you need to apply role security to individual controls on ...

Excluding SalesLogix Model Files from Source Control

Whether you're using Git, or some other source control system, there are certain files in a SalesLogix model that you do not want to include in your source control. Many part of the files in an exported SalesLogix model are automatically generated by the Application Architect and by the build process when you build your web platform. Having these files under source control would only complicate things when working with multiple developers sin...

Adding an external assembly to the SalesLogix entity model error: This assembly is built by a runtime newer than the currently loaded runtime and cannot be loaded

If you have ever tried adding a reference to an external assembly in the SalesLogix entity model through the Application Architect and have received the error: Could not load file or assembly ‘file:///SomepathSomeAssembly.dll’ or one of its dependencies. This assembly is built by a runtime newer than the currently loaded runtime and cannot be loaded. […]

Using an External Assembly for Entity Events and Business Rules in SalesLogix Web

Using external assemblies in SalesLogix development, rather than built in Code Snippets, is a better & more efficient way to customize SalesLogix entities, with far less headaches. Some of the benefits include a better and more complete development environment and having all your code in one place (instead of digging around through all the entities to get to the code).
