  • How to restore snapshot of Acumatica

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to leave a post on how to restore Acumatica snapshots with help of Acumatica Wizard.

    Before creating snapshot you may need to switch Acumatica to maintenance mode. Below are the steps for achieveing it:

    1. Go to System --> Management --> Apply Updates, click on the button "Schedule Lockout" and specify the reason for lockout 2. Don't forget to remove the lockout after you'll restore Snapshot.

    Steps are the following:

    1. Create a snapshot of the tenant you wish to back up

    2. Export that snapshot (I recoment  xml format).

    3. In the folder where the corresponding Acumatica Wizard is installed (usually c:\program files\Acumatica ERP\), find the folder … more

  • How to enable some control in Acumatica

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to leave a short note for the following situation:

    Imagine that you need to enable some control in Acumatica ( for example Mark for PO ) on page Sales orders ( SO301000 ).

    As usually for enabling control there are two ways:

    RowSelected

    Automation steps.

    Recently I found third option, when neither 1 nor 2 did work. After spending some time I found third option: Cache has property AllowUpdate. After I've set it to true, I was able to modify lines in Document details. 

    In your code it may look like this:

    protected void SOLine_RowSelected(PXCache cache, PXRowSelectedEventArgs e, PXRowSelected del)

    {

            if (del != null)

                  del(cache, e) … more

  • New syntax of SetVisibility method in Acumatica

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to write a few words about changes of PXUIFieldAttribute.SetVisibility method. 

    In the past, if you wanted to turn on some column, you could write in RowSelected event something like this:

              PXUIFieldAttribute.SetVisibility<APRegister.finPeriodID>(Documents.Cache, null, true);

    If you want to turn it off, then this:

    PXUIFieldAttribute.SetVisibility<APRegister.finPeriodID>(Documents.Cache, null, false);

    But for quite a long time ( even in 2017 version ), Acumatica team introduced PXUIVisibility enum. In code it looks like this:

    [Flags]

    public enum PXUIVisibility

    {

      Undefined = 0,

      Invisible = 1,

      Visible = 3,

      SelectorVisible = 7,

  • Required of BQL in FBQL of Acumatica

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to describe how analogue to Required works in Acumatica Framework.

    For example, in the past ( before 2019 R1 ) you may read something from Acumatica with help of Required:

    var contact = PXSelect<Contact, Where<Contact.displayName, IsNotNull, And<Contact.displayName,  Contains<Required<Contact.displayName>>>>>.SelectWindowed(graph, startIdx, 1, ' ').First();

    Now, you can use @P.AsString, as shown on code sample below:

    var contact = SelectFrom<Contact>.Where<Contact.displayName.IsNotNull.And<Contact.displayName. Contains<@P.AsString>>>.View.SelectWindowed(graph, startIdx, 1, ' ').First();

    Conclusion

    Also take a note, that … more

  • Different methods of PXInstanceHelper class in Acumatica

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to document one important class in Acumatica: PXInstanceHelper.

    I have found it long time ago, but finally time arrived to show how it works and what features it has. So, PXInstanceHelper include such methods:

    Method AppDataFolder.

    In code it looks like this:

    var result = PXInstanceHelper.AppDataFolder;

    Screenshot of it's execution may give you additional hint of what it does:

    This method returns physical path to folder App_Data inside of Acumatica instance. As you can see from the screenshot, on my dev machine App_Data folder lives at

    C:\Program Files\AcumaticaERP\InstanceHelperDB\App_Data

    2. Method CurrentCompany.

    In code looks like this: … more

  • How to use F-BQL view instead of PXSelect

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to leave a short note on how to use F-BQL version of PXSelect in Acumatica.

    In past it was common to have this line of code in your graph:

    public PXSelect<Student1> Students;

    In new F-BQL introduced new construction, SeleftFrom. Proper way of using it is this:

    public SelectFrom<Student2>.View Students;

    Take notice of suffix .View. Without that suffix you'll not get proper F-BQL view. And Acuminator will give you this warning:

    So if to summarize, don't forget to add suffix .View
