Hello Muhammadjon,

 

in order to achieve this you need to create a Replacing view model at the Custom package.

For the partent object you will need to select ContactSectionV2, or the section where you want to create this button.

Then you need to create a new localizable string (you will see the possibility to create a new one on the left) where you will put the desired text. for the button. While creating the localizable string you will need to enter the value, and the code. The code is something that you will use later.

 

After that you insert this code on the page:

 define("ContactSectionV2",
        function(BaseFiltersGenerateModule, Enums, ConfigurationConstants, BusinessRuleModule) {
            return {
                entitySchemaName: "Contact",
                messages: {},
                attributes: {},
                rules: {}/**SCHEMA_MODULES*/,
                /**
                 * Current schema mixins
                 */
                mixins: {},
                methods: {
                    OnTestButtonClick : function() {
                        Terrasoft.showInformation('Test') 
                    }
                },
                diff: /**SCHEMA_DIFF*/[
                    {
                    "operation": "insert",
                    "parentName": "ActionButtonsContainer",
                    "propertyName": "items",
                    "name": "TestButton",
                    "values": {
                        "itemType": Terrasoft.ViewItemType.BUTTON,
                        "style": Terrasoft.controls.ButtonEnums.style.GREEN,
                        "caption": {"bindTo": "Resources.Strings.TestButtonCaption"},
                        "markerValue": {"bindTo": "QualificationProcessButtonCaption"},
                        "classes": {"wrapperClass": ["t-btn-wrapper t-btn-text t-btn-style-blue actions-button-margin-right"]},
                        "iconAlign": Terrasoft.controls.ButtonEnums.iconAlign.RIGHT,
                        "click": {"bindTo": "OnTestButtonClick"},
                        "layout": {
                            "column": 6,
                            "row": 0,
                            "colSpan": 2
                        },
                        "visible": true
                    }
                }    ]/**SCHEMA_DIFF*/
            };
        });

 

The method  Terrasoft.showInformation('Test')  is the one responsible for displaying the message on screen. Here instead of Test you can write any message. 

The part where it says "caption": {"bindTo": "Resources.Strings.TestButtonCaption"}" , this is where you put the code from the localizable string previously created. So if the code of the string was called TestButtonCaption, then you need to put Resources.Strings.TestButtonCaption. If you name the code like "RandomButton" then it will be Resources.Strings.RandomButton.

Is there any way I can access a button instance directly, e.g., in the 'click' method of a client module in order to set the colour of the button using the setStyle method of the button object?

Not sure if it's possible since setStyle only receives some value as an argument and is being executed when the button is initialized.

 

In your case I would recommend to add this code to the click handler:

var buttonElementToModify = document.getElementById("ContactPageV2ChangeContainerStateButtonButton-textEl");
				buttonElementToModify.style.backgroundColor = "Green";

and replace ContactPageV2ChangeContainerStateButtonButton-textEl with an actual id of the element in DOM:

As a result when the button is clicked its color will be changed to green.

Hi community,

 

I try to trigger a business process from a custom button. I in the post that I need the ProcessModuleUtilities to achieve that. Here is my code :

 

define("MTF_Candidat1Page", ["MultiChoiceMixin", "ProcessModuleUtilities"], function(ProcessModuleUtilities) { 
	return {
		entitySchemaName: "MTF_Candidat",
		...
		methods: {
			OnClickCreateInterview: function(){
				var args = {
					sysProcessName: "MTFtestbtn" // this is the name of my business process. It simply send me a mail for now.
				};
				ProcessModuleUtilities.executeProcess(args);
 
				this.showInformationDialog("Busniess process triggered"); // just to show something to let me know the function triggered properly the busniess process
			},
		},
		...
		diff: /**SCHEMA_DIFF*/[
				...
				{
				"operation": "insert",
				"name": "BtnCreateInterview",
				"values": {
					"layout": {
						"colSpan": 24,
						"rowSpan": 1,
						"column": 0,
						"row": 7
					},
					"itemType": 5,
					"classes": {
						"textClass": [
							"actions-button-margin-right"
						],
						"wrapperClass": [
							"actions-button-margin-right"
						]
					},
					"click": {
						"bindTo": "OnClickCreateInterview"
					},
					"tag": "OnClickCreateInterview",
					"caption": {
						"bindTo": "Resources.Strings.BtnCreateInterviewCaption"
					},
					"hint": {
						"bindTo": "Resources.Strings.BtnCreateInterviewHint"
					}
				},
				"parentName": "ProfileContainer",
				"propertyName": "items",
				"index": 7
			}
			...
		]/**SCHEMA_DIFF*/
}

 

Now when I click on the button on my candidate page I have this error :

 

"Uncaught TypeError: ProcessModuleUtilities is undefined"

 

Do you have other docs to trigger business processes on custom button press ?

Hi Julien,

 

Could you change your schema definition as the following (swap "MultiChoiceMixin" and "ProcessModuleUtilities")?

define("MTF_Candidat1Page", ["ProcessModuleUtilities", "MultiChoiceMixin"], function(ProcessModuleUtilities)

In a section edit page, we have created custom buttons and have functionalities to hide and show the button. If we refresh the page Button enable/ Disable are working fine

But once we open the edit page, the button visibily/ page opening are not working properly until we refresh the page

we tried  this.reloadEntity(); inside init:function(){} Method.

 

Please Suggest me how to solve this issue.

Hi,

I'm working on Activities right now and I created my own activity.
I wanted to insert a New Activity with a press of a button which is located in the MainHeader. Question, what's the best way to insert my own activity?

I am currently trying to insert it via custom web service through

Insert insert = new Insert(UserConnection)
                .Set("","")
                .Into("Activity")

I'm afraid there are events, computations that won't be triggered.

Any comments?

Solem Khan Abdusalam,

After you call activity.Save() you can get the created record Id using 

// get primary Id value
var id = activity.PrimaryColumnValue;
// or get any of the column values using 
var title = activity.GetTypedColumnValue<string>("Title");
var start = activity.GetTypedColumnValue<DateTime>("StartDate");
// etc

Ryan

Using the Insert class does not trigger process events, etc. Instead, you can use the Entity class. Something like this: 

var schema = UserConnection.EntitySchemaManager.GetInstanceByName("Activity");
// Create a new Activity object
var activity = schema.CreateEntity(UserConnection);
// Set any any default column values 
activity.SetDefColumnValues();
// Now set the column values as needed
activity.SetColumnValue("Title", "This is a new activity");
activity.SetColumnValue("StartDate", DateTime.Now);
// etc
// Save when done
activity.Save();

Hope this helps.

Ryan

Ryan Farley,

Is there a way to fetch the Id of the created Activity?

Solem Khan Abdusalam,

 

One of possible ways is to create a SELECT query to the database using or the script task process element (if you are going to use a business process) or in the custom web service that is triggered upon clicking the button and select the last created activity (top 1 and ORDER BY CreatedOn conditions). Also the created activity can have some marker in its subject (like "created via web service" or so) that could be used in the filtering condition as well.

 

Insert query you've proposed won't return an Id of the record, but you can select it once the record is created.

Oscar

We need to add a custom button to the section analytical view page, which will trigger a business process.

 

 

Is it possible ?

 This container you are referring to is supposed to store DataViews in it (please take a look at the getDefaultDataViews method from the BaseDataView module). It is not supposed to store buttons in it.

 

It is better to add the button to a separate container created in the FiltersContainer container and bind process execution to this button. As an example I've added the button to the contact section analytics data view:

define("ContactSectionV2", ["ProcessModuleUtilities"],
	function(ProcessModuleUtilities) {
		return {
			entitySchemaName: "Contact",
			attributes: {},
			messages: {},
			methods: {
				runCustomProcess: function() {
					var config = {
						sysProcessName: "UsrProcess_eedcaa6"
					};
					ProcessModuleUtilities.executeProcess(config);
				}
			},
			diff: /**SCHEMA_DIFF*/ [
				{
					"operation": "insert",
					"name": "CustomButtonContainer",
					"parentName": "FiltersContainer",
					"propertyName": "items",
					"values": {
						"itemType": Terrasoft.ViewItemType.CONTAINER,
						"items": []
 
				},
				{
					"operation":"insert",
					"name": "TestProcessButton",
					"parentName": "CustomButtonContainer",
					"propertyName": "items",
					"values": {
						"itemType": Terrasoft.ViewItemType.BUTTON,
						"caption": {bindTo: "Resources.Strings.CustomButtonCaption"},
						"click": {bindTo: "runCustomProcess"},
						"style": Terrasoft.controls.ButtonEnums.style.GREEN
					}
				}
				] /**SCHEMA_DIFF*/
		};
	});

And connected custom process execution when clicking the button. As a result the button appeared on the page as expected:

And a custom process was executed upon clicking it.

After custom section button processing in list view mode, I need to switch to analytics view, instead of returning and waiting for the user to click on the analytics view button.

Is it possible ?

Ricardo Bigio,

You can use the following code to change to the dashboard view in a section:

this.changeDataView(this.get("AnalyticsDataViewName"));

Ryan

Hello Ricardo,

 

Can you please provide us with more details regarding your request and the business task you are trying to achieve?

I suppose you have some custom section with records and after you open a record and click some button on the page, you want the system to open section Dashboards instead of the regular section record list, am I correct?

 

Thank you!

 

Best regards,

Bogdan S.

On the section page are the buttons "new", "actions" , and the ones that switch from list mode to analytic mode.

Besides them,  I have a custom button,  "I/S",  that triggers a business process (in order to build data that will be shown when the user switches to analytic mode) and returns to the section page. Upon return, the section page will be in list mode, as it was before. What I need is the code in the section button processing to return to the section page already in analytic mode, so that the user will not have to click on the analytic mode icon in order to view the data.

 

Ricardo Bigio,

You can use the following code to change to the dashboard view in a section:

this.changeDataView(this.get("AnalyticsDataViewName"));

Perfect. Thanks !

Hello all,

 

I am working on modifying the Search contact and accounts page to add a cancel button to the top of the page so that the user can exit the page and properly terminate the business process that opens it.

However, I've added the script for inserting a button but it won't show up on the page. Here is my script below. Is there something I could be doing wrong?

Dear Kevin,

 

Could you please provide us with the information about how this page was created and how this page is called in a business process?

 

If this page is a pre-configured page, so you can easily add a button using page wizard and bind the “click” attribute to the appropriate method through a development.

 

 Best regards,

Norton

Norton Lingard,

It is the "Search page - Contacts and Accoutns" page that is used in the Identify contact by incoming call process. 

 

It is called like a pre-configured page in the process but when I try to modify it, it only opens right to the schema code instead of opening the page wizard. 

Dear Kevin,

 

I created the replacing client module for the “SearchAccountAndContactPage” schema and added the following code:

 

define("SearchAccountAndContactPage", [], function(){
    return {
        entitySchemaName: "Case",
        methods: {
            onCloseContactButton: function() {
                // business logic;
                alert("onCloseContactButton.click()");
            }
        },
        diff: [
                    {
                        "operation": "insert",
                        "parentName": "LeftContainer",
                        "propertyName": "items",
                        "name": "ClosePageButton",
                        "values": {
                            "itemType": this.Terrasoft.ViewItemType.BUTTON,
                            "caption": {"bindTo": "Resources.Strings.ClosePageButtonCaption"},
                            "click": {"bindTo": "onCloseContactButton"},
                            "style": "red"
                        }
                    }            
            ]
    };    
});

 

 

As a result, the button has successfully appeared in the page. Please see the screenshot below:

 

 

Please check you entered the correct value for the “caption” property. Since if this property has the wrong value, the button won’t be visible in the page.

 

Best regards,

Norton

Dear Mariia,

 

You need to create a module and Extend BaseDashboardItemViewConfig cancel button. Here is the button code example:

 

define("UsrDashboardItemViewConfig", ["BaseDashboardItemViewConfig"], function() {
    Ext.define("Terrasoft.configuration.UsrDashboardItemViewConfig", {
        extend: "Terrasoft.BaseDashboardItemViewConfig",
        alternateClassName: "Terrasoft.UsrDashboardItemViewConfig",

        getActionsViewConfig: function() {
            return {
                "name": "Actions",
                "itemType": Terrasoft.ViewItemType.CONTAINER,
                "classes": {wrapClassName: ["dashboard-item-actions on-hover-visible"]},
                "items": [
                    {
                        "name": "Cancel",
                        "itemType": Terrasoft.ViewItemType.BUTTON,
                        "style": Terrasoft.controls.ButtonEnums.style.BLUE,
                        "caption": {"bindTo": "CancelButtonCaption"},
                        "click": {"bindTo": "onCancelButtonClick"},
                        "classes": {
                            "textClass": "dashboard-item-right"
                        },
                        "visible": {"bindTo": "CancelButtonVisible"}
                    },
                    {
                        "name": "Cancel2",
                        "itemType": Terrasoft.ViewItemType.BUTTON,
                        "style": Terrasoft.controls.ButtonEnums.style.BLUE,
                        "caption": "TEST",
                        "click": {"bindTo": "onCancelButtonClick"},
                        "classes": {
                            "textClass": "dashboard-item-right"
                        },
                        "visible": {"bindTo": "ExecuteButtonVisible"}
                    },
                    {
                        "name": "Execute",
                        "itemType": Terrasoft.ViewItemType.BUTTON,
                        "style": Terrasoft.controls.ButtonEnums.style.GREEN,
                        "caption": {"bindTo": "ExecuteButtonCaption"},
                        "click": {"bindTo": "onExecuteButtonClick"},
                        "classes": {
                            "textClass": "dashboard-item-right"
                        },
                        "visible": {"bindTo": "ExecuteButtonVisible"}
                    }
                ]
            };
        }
    });
});

Create replacing client module of SectionActionsDashboard

define("SectionActionsDashboard", ["UsrDashboardItemViewConfig"], function() {
    return {
        
        methods: {
            initDashboardConfig: function() {
                this.callParent(arguments);
                const dashboardConfig = this.get("DashboardConfig");
                var activityItemsConfig = {
                    "Activity": {
                        viewModelClassName: "Terrasoft.ActivityDashboardItemViewModel",
                        viewConfigClassName: "Terrasoft.BaseDashboardItemViewConfig"
                    }
                };
                if (this.$entitySchemaName === "Case") {
                    activityItemsConfig.Activity.viewConfigClassName = "Terrasoft.UsrDashboardItemViewConfig";
                }
                Ext.merge(dashboardConfig, activityItemsConfig);
                this.set("DashboardConfig", dashboardConfig);
            }
        }
    };
});

Thank you for your answer.

How to add another custom "UsrDescription" column to the action dashboard ?

I tried to overload the method

 

/**

             * @overridden
             */
            addQueryColumns: function(esq) {
                this.callParent(arguments);
                esq.addColumn("Title", "Caption");
                esq.addColumn("Type");
                esq.addColumn("StartDate", "Date");
