In configuration console is there a way to create a dropdown for a custom user field?
Basically we created a custom user field on the Employee Business class and LRCDetail form and related it to a Custom Business Class using custom relation.
Now we want the users to select the value to be entered on that field from the Custom Business Class values only by creating a dropdown where they can search and select the required value for that field.
Kind of like what we used kndef and skndef in Lawson.
Is it possible in LPL?
Could someone share a custom code on how to do it?
Ahh.. I have my business class name and key field the same name. Change your NamedType to your key field
To tie the selection to a custom business class you need to define the user field to the business class via NamedType. Enter the name of the custom business class you want the user field defined as. Do not provide a Field Type or size as this is inherited from the business class. Or in lpl you can just define it with the syntax of
XYZUserFieldName is a XYZBusinessClassName
default label is untranslatable:"XYZ Name"
Hi After doing this will the dropdown be implemented.
The custom field will map to a description field within the Custom Business class and not the whole class.
For example the XYZ business class will have a unique id for uniqueness and also a secondary key "XYZname" that we want to link to this custom field in employee business class. We want the users to be able to able search and select the "XYZname" field and store in the Employee business class custom field,
Yes, the dropdown will be implemented based on the Key Field Name of the custom business class. If your custom business class also has a Description field you can also reference that Description in the form lpl. This will then show the value in the dropdown and the description next to it.
This is throwing me an error. Can you help?
Is there a sample for named type
Employee is a BusinessClass owned by hr
ZZZLocationType is a ZZZLocation default label is untranslatable:"LocationType"
So you have ZZZLocation defined as a custom business class? If so paste in your custom business class
ZZZLocation is a BusinessClass prefix is cfg
Ontology symbolic key is Location
ShortDescription is Alpha size 20 Active is Boolean
Then for Key field
Location is a KeyField
Representation type is Alpha size 100
Ontology business class is ZZZLocation
Like this?? Its still giving me an error.
ZZZLocationType is a ZZZLocation.Location default label is untranslatable:"LocationType"
