Icons and icon buttons

When the new style for Smart Office was introduced in version 10.1.0 we also added a new set of icons. There are now almost two hundred icons that can be used on buttons, menus or to convey information in an application. In addition to the new icons a couple of controls were added to make it easy to use the icons. These new controls are the Icon, IconButton and CommandBarButton in the Mango.DesignSystem namespace.

Mashup – Enable a button based on status and CurrentItemChanged

I’ll show you how to enabled a button on a current item changed event in a Mashup list. The scenario is as follows: You have a list of planned orders and you want to add a button to execute a related option but only if the order status has a specific value. I’ll show you how to set a property value in an event and how to execute a related option using a button. The real case scenario here would be planned work orders in MOS197 but for simplicity if you don’t use that module I’ll simulate the checks by using a much simpler program and one of my favorites, CRS610. The hard part is to reset the IsEnabled for the button to be false so that it does not keep its state as we select different rows in the list. Continue reading

Using a M3 List Api for a single hit

For M3 we have different APIs, most used are probably the list and get APIs. But what if you have a mashup and what you need is in a list API? Well you could just as well use the list API and bind to the first returned item. Or in fact you configure the MIDataService to only return the first result in the list.

Assuming there is an exact match you will get the expected data back. Say that you want to list customers and you pass in Infor, if infor isn’t a valid customer the list API will return whatever customer that comes after alphabetically.

My example will have an entry field for the customer to search for and a button that will trigger the List Event. In a real scenario this would probably be replaced with an event from a standard M3 form, like a CurrentItemChanged on a list or a detail form. Continue reading

Enable a button on a selected item

A few days ago I wrote a post about how to use the generic property setter in order to set IsEnabled on a button. I got the question how to do it in 9.1.2. Unfortunately the M3List does not expose the CurrentItem property in 9.1.2 so for M3Lists I have no solution. But for lists using the M3 APIS (MIListPanel) and the DataListPanel you have the option of checking the SelectedValue of the list and use a converter that will change a not null value to true.

My example has a list of Countries and a button that will be disabled unless a row in the list is selected. Continue reading
