Question: Question: I’m trying to create a new Opportunity/Sales Flow in my
SalesLogix v6.2.6 system. I created a .NET user control that fires
events (using a Timer to check the values inside my .NET object) and
it’s refreshing every second, this all seems like alot. Can I capture
the events fired in my .NET user control?
Answer: There are a few ways to do this, it just depends on your scenario. You
need to keep in mind that you can make the call to your .NET code
blocking so that you can follow up any processing after the .NET has
completed. You can completely expose your .NET code so that items are
driven by script in SalesLogix and the events are passed into the .NET
code for processing.
A simple way to tackle this is to create a script in SalesLogix that
will be the event handler. As an example, you create a script to
handle an event called
“System:MyEventHandler”. It would need just a Sub Main
and whatever code you want to execute for the event. Then, in your .NET
code, you’ll just invoke that script when you want the event to fire.
SalesLogix.ISlxApplication slx = new SalesLogix.SlxApplicationClass();
You’ll create a script to be the handler for each event. You
could consolidate it all into one script, just set a global before
invoking it, checking the global in the handler script and then
branching off to the sub/function for the specific event (based on the
global that was set).
There are some ways to wire up the events
in VBScript to have the events wired up normally. Look into HookEvents,
also VBScript’s built in GetRef could be used for this as well.
