For this basics article, I just wanted to outline the differences between the Radio Button and Radio Group controls, and when you would want to use one vs. the other. Both controls provide a similar sort of interface to end users, allowing them to select one out of many available options. Differences in how the […]
Picklists in SalesLogix are a very useful tool, but did you know you could also you values from an existing picklist to populate other list-based controls such as ComboBoxes, CheckListBoxes, ListViews... even Radio groups? You simply need an understanding of the structure of picklists in SalesLogix:
A combobox control works much like a picklist, in that it presents a number of selectable values to be stored in that control. You can set available values at development time using the items property of the control, but for greater flexablility, you can populate the control at run-time as well. For this example, we’ll […]
It’s simple enough in the SalesLogix LAN client to slap a bunch of bound controls on a form, but if you want to perform any sort of action on that data, chances are you are going to be writing code on various events available to you. As a simple example, I’ll build a simple […]

Aside from standard opportunity level fields, I also needed to include a simple count of products for each opportunity. In order to include the product count, I used a relatively simple process to define and […]

If you’re familiar with common controls in Visual Basic or C#, then this should all seem familiar to you as well. I’ll get more in-depth in the future; but for now, here’s some of the most common controls I use in SalesLogix customizatio...
