SysOperation-Framework: Usage data per MenuItem

Imagine you have a function build using the SysOperation framework that can be called at different places in the system, and you want to make sure that these calls do not share the same usage data.

In such a case you could create two (or more) MenuItems and override the method lastValueDesignName() of the controller as follows. This will store separate usage data for each MenuItem.

protected IdentifierName lastValueDesignName()
{
    IdentifierName ret;

    ret = super();

    if (this.parmArgs() && this.parmArgs().menuItemName())
    {
        ret = this.parmArgs().menuItemName();   
    }

    return ret;
}

 
 
 

Query/QueryRun using a temporary table

If you want to run through the contents of a temporary table with a QueryRun, you have to use the method setRecord() of the QueryRun object.

Simple example

static void Job1(Args _args)
{
    TmpFrmVirtual tmpFrmVirtual;
    InventTable inventTable;
    Query q;
    QueryRun qr;
    QueryBuildDataSource qbds1, qbds2;
    
    TmpFrmVirtual populateTmpFrmVirtual()
    {
        TmpFrmVirtual tmpFrmVirtualLocal;    
        
        tmpFrmVirtualLocal.clear();
        tmpFrmVirtualLocal.ItemId = "A0001";
        tmpFrmVirtualLocal.insert();
        
        tmpFrmVirtualLocal.clear();
        tmpFrmVirtualLocal.ItemId = "A0002";
        tmpFrmVirtualLocal.insert();        
        
        tmpFrmVirtualLocal.clear();
        tmpFrmVirtualLocal.ItemId = "A0003";
        tmpFrmVirtualLocal.insert();          
        
        return tmpFrmVirtualLocal;
    }
    
    q = new Query();
    qbds1 = q.addDataSource(tableNum(TmpFrmVirtual));
    
    qr = new QueryRun(q);
    qr.setRecord(populateTmpFrmVirtual());
    while (qr.next())
    {
        tmpFrmVirtual = qr.get(tableNum(tmpFrmVirtual));    
        
        info(tmpFrmVirtual.ItemId);
    }  
}

 
 
 

Filter a FormdataSource by financial dimensions

If you only want to display data records of a table that contain certain financial dimensions in a form, you can do this by overwriting the init() of the FormDataSource as follows:

public void init()
{
    super();
    
    SysQuery::addDimensionAttributeRange(salesTable_ds.query(),
                        salesTable_ds.name(),
                        fieldStr(Salestable, DefaultDimension),
                        DimensionComponent::DimensionAttribute,
                        '1001',
                        'CostCenter');    
}

You can also call addDimensionAttributeRange() multiple times, so you can filter for multiple dimensions simultaneously.

clearDimensionRangesFromQuery() removes such filters:

SysQuery::clearDimensionRangesFromQuery(salesTable_ds.query())

 


 
 
 

Create batch job with multiple tasks by code

The code snippets below show how to create batch jobs using the BatchHeader class.

Examples for a RunBaseBatch construct

static void createBatchWithMultipletasks(Args _args)
{
    BatchHeader batchHeader;
    Tutorial_RunbaseBatch batchTask1, batchTask2, batchTask3;

    //create batch header
    batchHeader = BatchHeader::construct();
    batchHeader.parmCaption("Example of a batch job with multiple tasks");

    //create instances of the classes to use as batch tasks
    batchTask1 = Tutorial_RunbaseBatch::construct();
    batchTask2 = Tutorial_RunbaseBatch::construct();
    batchTask3 = Tutorial_RunbaseBatch::construct();

    //add the batch tasks to the batch header
    batchHeader.addTask(batchTask1);
    batchHeader.addTask(batchTask2);
    batchHeader.addTask(batchTask3);

    //save the batch
    batchHeader.save();
}

 
 
 

Post the outgoing invoice by code, selecting only certain order lines and adjusting the quantity if necessary

Using the following code, you can post a sales invoice for a particular sales order and process only selected lines.
The trick is to use the standard functionality of the initLinesQuery() method to create the SalesParmLine table and modify these data records before posting. For example, by deleting entire data records from the SalesParmLine.

static void createSalesInvoiceSelectLines(Args _args)
{
    SalesTable salesTable = SalesTable::find('001562');
    SalesFormLetter salesFormLetter;
    SalesParmLine salesParmLine;
    
    setPrefix(funcName());
    
    salesFormLetter = SalesFormLetter::construct(DocumentStatus::Invoice);

    // Do the steps manually, which normally are done in method salesFormLetter.update()
    salesFormLetter.salesTable(salesTable);
    salesFormLetter.initParmSalesTable(salesFormLetter.salesTable());
    salesFormLetter.transDate(systemDateGet());
    salesFormLetter.specQty(SalesUpdate::All);
    salesFormLetter.proforma(salesFormLetter.salesParmUpdate().Proforma);
    salesFormLetter.printFormLetter(salesFormLetter.printFormLetter());
    salesFormLetter.printCODLabel(NoYes::No);
    salesFormLetter.printShippingLabel(NoYes::No);
    salesFormLetter.usePrintManagement(false);
    salesFormLetter.creditRemaining(salesFormLetter.creditRemaining());

    salesFormLetter.createParmUpdateFromParmUpdateRecord(
        SalesFormletterParmData::initSalesParmUpdateFormletter(
            salesFormLetter.documentStatus(),                   
            salesFormLetter.pack(),                                                                                                                
            true,                                                                                                                
            false,                                                                                                                
            false));

    salesFormLetter.initParameters(salesFormLetter.salesParmUpdate(), Printout::Current);

    salesFormLetter.initLinesQuery();
    
    while select forupdate salesParmLine
        where salesParmLine.ParmId == salesFormLetter.parmId()
    {
        setPrefix(#PrefixField(salesParmLine, InventTransId));
        
        // ...Modify record/Delete record...
    }

    // Let's go
    if (salesFormLetter.validate(null))
    {
        salesFormLetter.run();
    }
}

 


 
 
 

SysOperation-Framework: Simplest class construct

The code below is the simplest way to implement a function using the SysOperation framework. Without DataController, Dataprovider and UIBuilder. Only with a service class and a MenuItem.

Service

class TutorialSysOperationSimpleService extends SysOperationServiceBase
{
}

The runService() method is the actual service method. The SysEntryPointAttribute attribute controls that no further authorization checks are necessary.

[SysEntryPointAttribute(false)]
public void runService()
{
    info("Done");
}

 
 
 

SysOperation-Framework: Enable batch processing by default

If you want to activate batch processing by default for a function implemented via the SysOperation framework, you can do this by modifying the UI Builder like in the following example.

public void build()
{
    super();
    
    this.controller().batchInfo().parmBatchExecute(NoYes::Yes);
}

The code activates the checkbox Batch processing in the Batch tab.
