While you might have thought the fun would stop with my last post, oh no! Lets take a look at another style modification that you can make to tighten up those picklist drop downs. Normally, in the Infor CRM Web client, a picklist has enough white space between the entries to hide a dojo widget […]
The most recent version of Chrome (67) is incompatible with some older versions of the SalesLogix web client.
In the Infor CRM client for all levels of 8.3 and 8.4 if you have an email control that contains an email like “phil.d’email@example.com’ the email address is not correctly used to open a new email dialog. Instead the email that gets passed is “pil.d”. This is because the launching of the email window uses […]
Do not enable No Count on a SQL server running Infor CRM (Saleslogix).
Many years ago I wrote an article titled Making Required Fields More Visible for SalesLogix 7.2 Web where I outlined how to display a message to the user when required fields are missing. Things have changed in CRM since then. In version 7.2, controls used ASP.NET validation with RequiredFieldValidators so you could accomplish showing a […]
There’s an annoyance in Infor CRM Web (Saleslogix) that most people have when viewing long notes or emails in the Notes/History tab. There’s a “View More” link, but clicking that only reveals a bit more. You click it again and it reveals a little more, and you repeat that several times until the entire note […]
Filed under “when did this get added”. I just found that in the 8.3.09 Infor CRM system that the Crystal Report “Activities: Current Activities – Sample” when run through the web client acts differently then when run through the LAN client. In the web client it filters down the report to only show current user […]
You can disable unused jobs buy commenting them out in the Scheduling.config file.
Infor just released update 8.3.10. This fix contains A LOT of fixes to issues that are present in 8.3.09. Infor splits the delivery of these into 3 sets of files, SNC, Core, and Model. Typically the model update is the most troublesome to integrate since it can affect the various UI elements that users of […]
The Editable Grid, or SData Grid in the Infor CRM (Saleslogix) web client is a dojo-based grid based on dgrid. This means that, for the most part, you can do just about anything with the editable grid that you can do with dgrid. In Infor CRM, there’s a few layers to the grid that you […]
Make sure your Infor CRM web server is behind a firewall that blocks traffic on port 11211.
Along the same lines as my previous article covering referencing entities using the IDynamicEntity interface to set and get properties by a string name instead of as a strongly-typed object, you can also use the IComponentReference interface as a generic entity type since all entities implement this interface. This interface is found in the Sage.Platform.ComponentModel […]
I recently had a request to customize the Lookup dialog in Infor CRM (Saleslogix) to add a hyperlink column that would launch a dialog to show related data to the row in the lookup search results. For this particular request, the customer wanted to add this custom column to any product lookup that would show […]
It is possible to hide groups at the database level, thus speeding up load times.
One thing that irks me about the dojo based Activity and History lookup widgets is that they don’t allow hyperlinking. While I get you don’t want users leaving the current page in the middle of creating a new record, it is awfully nice to be able to navigate to a record via a link. I […]
If you install the Job Server on your Web Server, the Web Server is likely to take a significant performance hit from having the Job Server working in the background.
Groups can be a useful way to allow the user to build conditions to limit the records to perform some action on. Recently, we designed a job that would work on a set of records and we allow the users to define the list of records by adding conditions to a group. The job would […]
Something that is nice about the Application Architect is that it is customizable in a similar way to how you customize the Infor CRM web client itself. An example of this is in my Git Extensions for Application Architect project. One useful place that you can extend with your own code is the deployment process. […]
