how to make redirects in Acumatica and popup warning
today I want to write a newer post about how to give an opportunity to user go to some link from Acumatica. As I've mentioned in https://blog.zaletskyy.com/types-of-redirects-in-acumatica, redirections are implemented as exception. Let consider next simple code, by which you can implement it:
In your page (in our example this is SO301000) a button will appear:
If user will click to this button, then he'll immediately receive requested data right in main window:
This approach has the disadvantage - the user will lose all unsaved data. So let's change our code to warn the user about it:
Now, after the user clicks on the "Learn More" button, a popup window will appear on the screen with a warning about the need to save the data:
It mach better. Warning is needed when using "Redirect0:" -"Redirect1:" and the link opens directly in the work window. But it is not necessary when using "Redirect3:" - "Redirect8:", because in this cases unsaved data is not lost, since the link is opened on another page (when to use "Redirect3:" - "Redirect5:") or in a popup (when to use "Redirect7:" and "Redirect8:"):
As we see, in Acumatica it is easy to direct the user to the link he wants.
