By | November 27, 2017

Sage 300 ERP has recently released the latest version 2018(v6.5) with the new theme alike Windows 10. When we create the custom Sage 300 module, we require that the customer should get the same look and feel that is provided by standard Sage 300 ERP.

New Stuff: Using modern UI – new theme for custom modules in Sage 300 ERP

A snippet of code which may help the developer to make use of this functionality:

Step 1: Locating the INI file of the module

Generally, custom module is created at path “C:\Dev\TU\…” as per the manual provided from the Sage.

Developer will be able to locate the INI file “TU.INI” file under “C:\Dev\TU\source\project\”.

Step 2: Adding the code for using the modern UI

Open TU.ini file in edit mode and search for section “General”.

If the section is present then add the below code under “General” section:


If the section “General” is not present then add the below code at the end if the file.



Step 3: Using the INI file in the Sage 300 ERP.

After the code is added to the INI file, make the project. The newly generated file can be found at path “C:\Dev\TU\build32\runtime\”

Copy the all the recently updated files from the runtime folder and paste it in the Sage 300 Programs directory under TU65A folder.

Alternatively, user can navigate to the desired Sage 300 module. For Example: “C:\Program Files (x86)\Sage\Sage 300 ERP\TU65A\” and edit the TU.ini file to include the code mentioned at step 2.

So, developer can use the above code snippet to call the modern UI provided by Sage in Sage 300 ERP v2018.
