  • How to imitate click on Confirm shipment in Acumatica

    Hello everybody,

    Today I want to describe how to imiate click on menu item "Confirm shipment" in Acumatica. 

    Probably your first guess will be just call method ConfirmShiment of graph SOShipmentEntry. But for now Acumatica team has another advice in order to call this action. Instead of calling method ConfirmShipment you'll need to have a bit more steps.

    Code sample below demonstrates those necessary steps:

    SOShipmentEntry shipmentGraph = PXGraph.CreateInstance<SOShipmentEntry>(); //Create instance of Graph


    PXAdapter adapter2 = new PXAdapter(new DummyView(shipmentGraph, shipmentGraph.Document.View.BqlSelect,

  • Three states of fields in Acumatica

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to write a short note on three states of fields existing in Acumatica:

    Exists but is empty

    Exist and have value

    Has null

    If to speak about string, it can exist like this:


    Some value


    Do you see difference between 1 and 3? Not easy. As usually developers of C#, show this difference like this:


    "Some Value"


    And following screenshot with explanation shows how it works in case of SOAP contracts:

    so, while you make integration, keep that in mind more

  • New functions for redirect in Acumatica

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to say few words about new functions for redirect in Acumatica, and particularly about class PXRedirectHelper. 

    Classical approach from T200/T300 manual may look like this:

    var currentCse = Cases.Current;

    if(currentCse == null)


    var graph = PXGraph.CreateInstance<CRCaseMaint>();

    graph.Case.Current = graph.Case.Search<CRCase.caseCD>(currentCse.CaseCD);

    if (graph.Case.Current != null)


    throw new PXRedirectRequiredException(graph, true, "Case details");


    But with new function all of those lines can be simplified to this:

    PXRedirectHelper.TryRedirect(Cases.Cache, Cases.Current, "Edit case", PXRedirectHelper.WindowMode.NewWindow); … more

  • Simplest cachinng explanation

    Hello everybody,

    today I want to give one more explanation of how to use caching and slots for caching purposes. Also there are plenty of articles on the subject,  I want to give one more with simplest recipe. So, if you need to cache something, you'll need to follow this procedure:

    declare you class as something that inherits IPrefetchable

    Create some placeholder in your class for storing items in the cache

    Implement Prefetch

    Implement GetSlot

    Take a look on the code below, how it can be done:

    public class ArTranFetcher : IPrefetchable


    private List<ARTran> _arTranList = new List<ARTran>();

    public void Prefetch()

  • Four types of programmers

    Hi.It is first time I write on topic of management and recruitment. Question is about one way of classifying your programmers, who work with you now or will come in a future. My main thesis is: all developers, roughly speaking, are divided into 4 large types and each of these types has its own application area.Attempting to send the wrong type to solve inappropriate tasks leads to a failure ( inefficient work, or the employee leaves the team ). If you want to know why, you are welcome. Get ready, we have a lot of information. Basicallly what I say is my perception of world of programmers.

    It is important to understand that there are no "bad" types. If any of the types you think is bad, … more
