How do I default the Saleslogix description field on the edit address screen to ‘Mailing’?

Question:

How do I  default the Saleslogix description field on the edit address screen to ‘Mailing’?

Answer:

The main issue is that for Address Edit the applyContext function is never called.

 

The Address Edit view flow is:

 

Contact Detail View

Contact Edit View (may query for default values (and call applyContext on itself) or  use passed values)

Address Edit View — always gets passed the existing value from the previous Edit view. Therefore applyContext never happens since there is no $template request for default values, it always uses the passed values.

 

Meaning if you want to set a default value (to be passed) you would have to do it in the Contact View (and all views that have an address field), something like:

 

Ext.override(Mobile.SalesLogix.Contact.Edit, {
    applyContext: function() {
        Mobile.SalesLogix.Contact.Edit.superclass.applyCon​text.apply(this, arguments);
        console.log(‘setting description’);
        this.fields[‘Address’].setValue({‘Description’:’Ma​iling’});
    }
});

 

*Note that AddressField stores an object with all the address parts as keys.

 

So for:

a) Typical cases (not EditorFields which AddressField inherits) your approach is correct, using applyContext to provide a direct ‘default value’ for new insertions.

 

b) Take a peek at Contact/Edit — in the init() function it binds to the onchange event of the Account field. In the handler, onAccountChange, it sets a field based on a property of the new Account object.
