  • 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:


    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)

  • 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:


    public enum PXUIVisibility


      Undefined = 0,

      Invisible = 1,

      Visible = 3,

      SelectorVisible = 7,
