Determine Calling Screen in Sage X3

By | March 21, 2013

There are several occasions where one screen calls up another screen. For e.g. if we call the Project screen from Task Screen, in this case, the source screen is “TASK” and the destination screen is “PROJECT”.

Now but when we think of any technical parameter or variable which will be storing this value, we find Sage X3 has a variable called “GFONCTION” and “GFONCTION1”. These are global variables which store the Calling and Called screen function names.

Now moving to an example which will give a better picture of this variable requirement: As you may know the PROJECT screen can be called from TASK Screen and APPOINTMENT Screen as well. If we wish to check which is the Calling Screen we just need to monitor the “GFONCTION1” variable.

Just for your ready reference, we are jotting down the code; which will give you an idea of how the GFONCTION1 is used. The code checks the GFONCTION1 variable is equal to the “GESOPP” and further actions are performed.
