The Numeric control used in QuickForms in the Infor CRM Web client is rendered as a Dojo Dijit at runtime. The properties editor in Application Architect does expose a few properties you can set to change how the numeric value is formatted, such as decimal places, etc. However, it doesn’t allow you to specify a […]
The Infor CRM implementation of a checkbox does not use a standard ASP.Net CheckBox control. Instead it uses its own control implementation that inherits from the CheckBox control. One of the things that I struggled with recently was how to both change the text showing with the CheckBox as well as change the color of […]
Kris wrote previously about a change you can make to allow using QuickForms in Web Browser controls. That change is a necessary one to make, however, there is one more change you must make if you’ll be using QuickForms in the Web Browser control that you will be showing as a dialog. When the form […]
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 […]
I’ve posted previously about how you can change the Dijit control type of the ComboBox to give it different functionality or behavior. See Creating a Searchable & Filterable ComboBox in Infor CRM In that post, I showed how to change the ComboBox’s data-dojo-type attribute to change it from a normal ComboBox to a filterable & searchable […]
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? You might want to still allow a user to add data into those controls on an insert screen even though they would normally be […]
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 ...
In my last post, I discussed how the Infor CRM (Saleslogix) ComboBox is a Dijit Select form widget. This opens up a few different things about what you can do to the control based on what is possible to do with the Dijit Select. For example, controlling the height of the popup list for the ComboBox.
There's a problem with the ComboBox control in the Infor CRM (Saleslogix) Web Client. It won't disable. Sure, it has an Enable property, but setting it to false has no effect on the control and it will remain enabled. However, there is a solution. Luckily, the control itself renders as a Dijit Select form widget from the Dojo UI Library so we can simply manipulate the control based on what can be done to the Dijit Select.
Problem setting SLXTextbox enabled property / Setting unexposed base control properties for a custom control
I recently had an issue with a Quickform where I was attempting to set the Enabled property of a TextBox based on the value of a checkbox on the same form. For some reason, the enabled property I was setting for the textBox was not being honored.
I wanted to run through quickly how to set filters when using the OpenDialog in the SalesLogix LAN client. When using OpenDialog, it's nice to be able to define filters so that your users only see the type of file that you want them to open. This is really easy to set up.
Ah, the SalesLogix Web Client... Having worked with SalesLogix for over a decade, I feel as though there's not a whole lot I can't do with the LAN client. The Web client however.... Well, it seems like I encounter challenges with it every day.
Back in January, I posted about the SalesLogix picklist data structure, and outlined how to use the data found in the picklist table to populate other controls such as comboboxes and listboxes. You can find that article here.) If you are performing customizations to version 7.2 or later of SalesLogx, this processes can be greatly simplified by using Application.Picklist instead of directly querying the database.
If you've ever wanted to implement some sort of Spell Check functionality within your SalesLogix database, you're in luck! The Standard Spell Check vbScript makes it simple to add this functionality to your custom forms
In my last blog post, I described how to use the Progress Bar control to provide feedback to a user when running time intensive processes. In addition to the Progress Bar control, the Animate control can also be used. Animate Control The Animate control is very simple to use. A number of animations are inlcuded to […]
When performing lengthly updates in the SalesLogix client, it's a good idea to provide the user with some degree of feedback so that it doesn't appear as though SalesLogix has locked up. The Progress Bar control, can be used for this purpose:
In my last Main Views article, I created the detail view as well as the mainview. For this next part, I'll go through creating an insert view, as well as toolbar and menu items for the new SLXProject entity.
Binding a DataGrid at runtime is something that many SalesLogix developers are used to doing while working in the LAN client. This task is every bit as easy in the web platform as well. Let's take a look at how to put this together.
For my next few blog posts, I'll go through the steps required to create a new main area in SalesLogix.
A while back I wrote an article on setting the sort for a DataGrid in SalesLogix Web at runtime. That solution worked great in SalesLogix 7.2. However, things changed in SalesLogix 7.5 so I thought it was time for an update to that original post. Let's see what changed and how to make it work again.
