Autonumbering In Acumatica Second Way

 

In one of my previous posts I described how to add autonumbering to acumatica. Described method will work pretty well, if you don't have any pop-ups which also need to have autonumbering. In case if you have such pop-ups, then it is different story.

My next assignment on the job was to add autonumbering to the screen "Fund Transfers" which is marked as "CA301000" to the field Document ref at three places:

There is a saying, that one image is better then thousands of words :).

Here is example of my code for OutExtRefNbr:

        protected void CATransfer_OutExtRefNbr_FieldDefaulting(PXCache sender, PXFieldDefaultingEventArgs e)
        {
            var row = e.Row as CATransfer;
            if (row == null)
                return;
            var refNbr = "001224";
            e.NewValue = refNbr;
        }

 

If you have a question why on earth code below needed:

                   var row = e.Row as "Class for which we will provide extension";

                   if( row == null )

                      return;

the answer is simple: because Acumatica for some unknown reason calls method FieldDefaulting and for mysterious reason passes into e.Row null. If you have any idea why, you are welcome to share them. I don't have and just used workaround ( don't say it to my boss ).

 

The second part of my task was to add some value to pop-up window. That can be done via the following template:

public class "Class Extention name" : PXGraphExtension<"Class for which we will provide extension">

{

      protected void "Class for which we will provide extension"_RowUpdated(PXCache sender, PXRowUpdatedEventArgs e)

      {

             Base.AddFilter.Current."Field in pop-up" = "some default value";

            Base.AddFilter.Update(Base.AddFilter.Current);

       }

"Field in pop-up" you can find also in Design mode of Acumatica forms.

Here is fragment of my source code for changes:

protected void CATransfer_RowUpdated(PXCache sender, PXRowUpdatedEventArgs e)
{
     Base.AddFilter.Current.ExtRefNbr = "0012224";
     Base.AddFilter.Update(Base.AddFilter.Current);
}

Copy Entry Types Via Web Services In Acumatica From One Instance Into Another

Hello everybody.

Today I want to share how to copy Entty Types items in acumaticca from one instance into another instance.

The first step was to create import export settings in both instances of acumatica as described in acumatica manual similar to this screenshot:

The second step was to create project, which I decided to make as windows forms application with the following input fields:

For the button click at entry types write the following:

           var context = new ImportEt.Screen
                {
                    CookieContainer = new CookieContainer(), AllowAutoRedirect = true, EnableDecompression = true, Timeout = 1000000, Url = txtFrom.Text
                };

           var lgRes = context.Login(txtUserName.Text, txtPassword.Text);
           if (lgRes.Code == ErrorCode.OK)
           {
                var ca203000 = context.CA203000GetSchema();
                context.CA203000Clear();


                var export = context.CA203000Export(
                    new Command[]
                        {
                            ca203000.EntryType.EntryTypeID, ca203000.EntryType.DisbReceipt, ca203000.EntryType.EntryTypeDescription, ca203000.EntryType.Module, 
ca203000.EntryType.BusinessAccount, ca203000.EntryType.DefaultOffsetAccount, ca203000.EntryType.UseForPaymentsReclassification,
ca203000.EntryType.ReclassificationAccount, ca203000.EntryType.DeductFromPayment }, null, 0, false, false); context.Url = txtTo.Text; var lgRes2 = context.Login(txtUserName.Text, txtPassword.Text); if (lgRes2.Code == ErrorCode.OK) { ca203000 = context.CA203000GetSchema(); context.CA203000Clear(); foreach (var et in export) { var ca203000ImportResults = context.CA203000Submit( new Command[] { new Value { Value = et[0], LinkedCommand = ca203000.EntryType.EntryTypeID}, new Value { Value = et[1], LinkedCommand = ca203000.EntryType.DisbReceipt }, new Value { Value = et[2], LinkedCommand = ca203000.EntryType.EntryTypeDescription }, new Value { Value = et[3], LinkedCommand = ca203000.EntryType.Module }, new Value { Value = et[4], LinkedCommand = ca203000.EntryType.BusinessAccount }, new Value { Value = et[5], LinkedCommand = ca203000.EntryType.DefaultOffsetAccount }, new Value { Value = et[6], LinkedCommand = ca203000.EntryType.UseForPaymentsReclassification }, new Value { Value = et[7], LinkedCommand = ca203000.EntryType.ReclassificationAccount }, new Value { Value = et[8], LinkedCommand = ca203000.EntryType.DeductFromPayment }, ca203000.Actions.Save }); } } }

 

All activities in Acumatica are done via interface context, whic is of type screen. 

As for me, the easiest way to get some data is via command "screenID" + export. In my code you can see construction CA203000Export. Inside of it you can point to id of screen, data of which you want to receive. For example CA203000Export.

The simplest way to send something to acumatica another instance is function "screen id" + "Submit". In my code you can see method CA203000Submit. Fields Value is self-explanatory as for me. The most important and hard to understand for me was LinkedCommand. It can be name of the field. That means values has to be putted into a field. It can be action name to push on and etc. 

Another important facet of mentioned code is Actions.Save. If it is not mentioned, than code will post data to web services, but they wil not be saved.

 

Acumatica Active Directory

 

Hello,

today I want to share just simple record of how to join acumatica and your Active Directory.

For example you have the following data:

Active directory url:LDAP://RT1:389

User name yura_zale@dot.com, password: 123

For cases like this you need the following record in your web.config file:

<activeDirectory enabled="true" path="RT1:389" user="dot\yura_zale" password="123" />

 

List View In Accumatica

 

Here I want to describe how to create such simple page like this:

For reading this manual father you need to know how to add page to sitemap in accumatica. If you need me to describe this process let me know, I assume it is not challenging process.

For staff like this you need ListView template and two other classes.

The first class is used to represent single view item in grid and second class intended for navigating in the db. 

Accumatica manual recomends the following location of those two classes:

1. Create separated project ( for example IG )

2. Inside of it create Folder with the name of pages folder ( for example Investigation )

3. Add reference to the dll PX.Data

4. Create class CountryMaint:

namespace IG.Investigation
{
    public class CountryMaint : PXGraph<CountryMaint>
    {
    }
}

5. Build class library and add reference to newly created project.

I got something similar to this ( just without red rectangle ):

For now we have manager of records but without representation of records itself. Let's do it with tool called Data access class generator. Switch back to the file IG301000.aspx choose design mode and for the typename choose IG.Investigation.CountryMaint.
