Launching Pop up window in Sage X3

By | August 27, 2012

In this article, I will concentrate how to launch a pop up window through a button click. Assuming that you have already had some hands on creating basic Sage X3 screen, I will take to a nickel tour of launching pop up window on button click in Sage X3.

A pop up window is actually a simple Window that has screen(s) packed in it. So, first create a screen as per your requirement and set the ‘Size’ attribute to ‘Dialogue Box’.

Now assign this screen to a window from Development -> Processes -> Windows. Set the ‘Window Type’ attribute to ‘Miscellaneous’ and ‘Display’ to ‘Dialog Box’.
That ‘s all for the look and feel of our pop up. Now let us work on the launching of this pop up.
Suppose you need to launch the pop up on click of a button say ‘Criteria’ from the first (source) window.

Go to Development -> Processes -> Windows and select your window.
Now, on the ‘Buttons/Menus’ tab, add a button with appropriate button text say ’Criteria’.
Do a right click in the action field of the button and select ‘Action’ option. This would take you to the ‘Action’ maintenance screen. Here create a new action with ‘Template’ set to ‘Window Entry’ and ‘Type’ set to ‘Miscellaneous’. Finally, enter the name of your window for ‘Main Window’ attribute.
Now, click on ‘Create’ and you are done. Now, test the pop up by clicking on the ‘Criteria’ button of the first(source) window.
Remember this pop up is Modal pop up that is this pop up must be closed before you can continue working with the rest of the application.
