  • Windows
    • Each application you load from SYSPRO is typically loaded in a window (IMP040)
  • Forms
    • Each Window contains several forms (or Panes or Frames)
    • Forms are currently read-only or writable
    • Forms go by a certain name
  • Fields
    • Fields make up the various items under a form
    • Each field contains a description and a value
  • Values
    • Fields have certain types of values
    • They might be read-only/writable
    • They could be editable, contain a link, a button or list
    • Values can be set from a script
adding fields
Adding fields
  • The following types of fields can be added:
    • Related fields
      • Fields that might or might not be part of the default UI relating to the current form
      • This information typically come from a master table
    • Custom fields
      • SYSPRO users might be familiar with the concept of a custom form
      • These fields can only be placed in writable frames
    • Scripted fields
      • If you simply want to display information (not post it and not relating to the form)
      • These fields are NOT posted to tables in our DB!
modifying form field behaviour
Modifying Form/Field Behaviour
  • Events
    • Various events fire during the rendering of a form or field
    • You can programmatically hook into these events and change the program’s behavior
  • Scripts
    • Scripts are plain-text files stored on the server and contain VB Script code that handles elected events
    • Scripts can read all information from al forms but only write to certain Forms and certain fields
  • Objects
    • Represent fields programmatically
    • Object values can be set or their appearance can be changed
    • Objects can also be set to contain buttons
smart links
  • Create a context menu on any field with any amount of items to click on
  • Smart-Links can kick-off any internal (SYSPRO) or external application
  • They can also launch a quick-view
