This includes things like the store, or sdata feed that the lookup will use, what columns show in the lookup, and also filters on the lookup. These options are passed […]
In the Infor CRM 8.3.09 web client timeless activities in the sdata grid display their dates as one day off due to UTC offset incorrectly being applied to these records.

When customizing the Infor CRM (Saleslogix) Mobile client, it's common for the ApplicationModule to grow very large as more and more customizations get added into it. This makes the code difficult to work with and very poorly organized. There are some better solutions to keep your code nicely organized and easy to maintain.
The blogs on customerfx.com go all the way back to 2003. There's years and years worth of information that we've accumulated and shared.

However, if you're just starting with developing & customizing the web client, it might be hard to know what to start reading. This post will contain an index of pos...
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...

For example: Sage.Entity.Interfaces.IAccount acc this.BindingSource.Current as Sage.Entity.Interfaces.IAccount; if (acc.type != "Customer" || acc.type != "Prospect")
