  • Addition to PXDatabase.Update in Acumatica

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to share a new feature for me in Acumatica from code standpoint. 

    So, suppose that you want to update some column in Acumatica database, but you want to avoid graph creation, loading necessary fields, and all that you need to do is just update column. For example over adding some value.

    You can't achieve it with simple call to

    PXDatabase.Update<>()

    Or if you can, then let me know, because I didn't find the way how to do it. 

    But instead I found another new method in Acumatica which is named PXUpdate.

    For example you can use this method for adding to each email in table contact value ".someaddition"

    PXUpdate<Set<Contact.eMail, Add<Contact.eMail,  … more

  • How to get companyID in Acumatica 2

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to leave another post related to getting Acumatica. There is one more way of gettinc current company id. For this purpose you can use class of Acuamtica named SharedFunctions.

    It has plenty of interesting staff, as well as getting Current company id. Take a look on it:

  • How to interfere with Acumatica after publish of customization

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to tell you about interesting class in Acumatica: CustomizationPlugin. Take a look on how reflector shows it's source code:

    namespace Customization

    {

      public abstract class CustomizationPlugin

      {

        public virtual void OnPublished()

        {

        }

        public virtual void UpdateDatabase()

        {

        }

        public void WriteLog(string msg)

        {

          CstPublishLog.WriteLog(msg);

        }

      }

    }

    As you can see, this class has three methods:

    OnPublished

    UpdateDatabase

    WriteLog

    Each of those events allows you to update Acumatica after some events happening. For example after publish, on stage of updating database, and also you can use it … more

  • How to override properly CreatePaymentProc method of SOOrderEntry graph in Acumatica

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to leave short note on how to override and call CreatePaymentProc method of Acumatica which I discovered today with Naveen from Kensium.

    My favorite way of overriding methods in Acuamtica with usage of Action and passing there parameters doesn't work. That is because Acumatica uses in method CreatePaymentProc out modifier. Due to this, delegate declaration is needed. 

    After some efforts and refactorings we found following code that is working:

    public class SOOrderEntryExt : PXGraphExtension<SOOrderEntry>

    {

        public delegate void CreatePaymentBase(SOOrder order, out PXGraph target, string paymentType);

        [PXOverride]

        public virtual void  … more

  • How to increase length of Customer id column

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to describe interesting case. Recently I was asked to increase length of Customer ID at page AR303000.

    As usually such tasks can be achieved via creating extension to DAC class with setting new length, 

    and with SQL statement that increases length of column. But that is not the case with Customer ID. That is because

    Customer ID is Segmented Selector. And everything related to segmented selectors should be managed 

    at page Segmented Keys page ( CS202000 ). All that is needed to be done is increasing the Length field of segmented keys.

    Other approaches can lead to corruption of segmented keys. Especially if you decide to do it in database with DB scripts.  … more

  • How to shrink database of Acumatica with rebuilding of

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to leave another portion of SQL Server optimization for Acumatica database. In case if your db become huge, and you want to make it smaller, you can try following SQL code:

    DECLARE @Table NVARCHAR(128)  

    DECLARE @Database NVARCHAR(128)

    DECLARE @Command NVARCHAR(500)

    PRINT N'Shrinking database files'

    DBCC SHRINKDATABASE(0)

    PRINT N'Rebuilding all indexes'

    SET @Database = DB_NAME()

    SET @Command = 'DECLARE TableCursor CURSOR FOR SELECT ''['' + TABLE_CATALOG + ''].['' + TABLE_SCHEMA + ''].['' + 

        TABLE_NAME + '']'' as TableName FROM [' + @Database + '].INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES 

        WHERE TABLE_TYPE = ''BASE TABLE'''

  • How to find sizes of tables in Acumatica

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to share with you SQL statement that may help you to find sizes of tables occupied by Acumatica. It goes below:

    SELECT 

        t.NAME AS TableName,

        s.Name AS SchemaName,

        p.rows AS RowCounts,

        SUM(a.total_pages) * 8 AS TotalSpaceKB, 

        CAST(ROUND(((SUM(a.total_pages) * 8) / 1024.00), 2) AS NUMERIC(36, 2)) AS TotalSpaceMB,

        CAST(ROUND(((SUM(a.total_pages) * 8) / 1024.00 / 1024.00), 2) AS NUMERIC(36, 2)) AS TotalSpaceGB,

        SUM(a.used_pages) * 8 AS UsedSpaceKB, 

        CAST(ROUND(((SUM(a.used_pages) * 8) / 1024.00), 2) AS NUMERIC(36, 2)) AS UsedSpaceMB, 

        (SUM(a.total_pages) - SUM(a.used_pages)) * 8 AS UnusedSpaceKB,

  • How to make calculated field available in Generic Inquiry screen of Acumatica and Starship

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to describe interesting case. 

    I was asked to add on Acumatica screen Date field, which calculates according to some business logic rules. Task was pretty simple initially to do, so I've jumped, and added that field like this:

    public abstract class usrExpectedByDate : IBqlField

    {

    }

    [PXDBDate()]

    [PXUIField(DisplayName = "Expect Date", IsReadOnly = true)]

    [PXDefault(PersistingCheck = PXPersistingCheck.Nothing)]

    public virtual DateTime? UsrExpectedByDate { get; set; }

    I provided this customization to customer and had expectation that I can enjoy from my life. 

    But with time, customer notified me, that shiping didn't work as expected. Why, because in … more

  • How to add validation to Create shipment and confirm shipment in Acumatica

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to write a few words on my latest time spending in Acumatica. Recently I was asked to add additional validations to actions Create shipment:

    and Confirm Shipment:

    Idea was the following, if user clicks on Create shipment action or at Confirm Shipment action, some function should be executed which throws exception and prevents Creation/confirmation of shipment if some conditions are not meet. 

    At first glance task was trivial. I supposed that all that will be needed, just override method Create Shipment of SOOrderEntry and Cofirm Shipment of SOShipmentEntry. And jumped right to the code. 

    In order to modify behavior of those two methods, I've created … more

  • One more description on how to modify behavior of Sales Orders screen in Acumatica

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to present a bit differnt code sample on how to append to behavior of Actions menu items of Sales Orders screen. 

    Quite often there are tasks like add something before ( preprocessing ) or after some menu item action was executed. Once I've described it alredy here, but just want to give another example with usage of Func.

    Take a look on following code sample:

    [PXOverride]

    public IEnumerable Action(PXAdapter adapter, int? actionID, DateTime? shipDate, String siteCD, String operation, 

        String ActionName, 

        Func<PXAdapter, int?, DateTime?, string, string, string, IEnumerable> baseMethod)
