Finding the right Plugin in Architect

Do you all have any tips for finding the right plugin in SLX Architect? There are times where I spend hours pouring through forms trying to find the right one. There's got to be a better way- right?

 

Thanks for your help!

Re: Finding the right Plugin in Architect

If the form is not intitively named, you should be able to open the closest plugin (which opens the form you want in the Client) you can identify in Architect and follow the code.  The better you get at reading VB, the faster it gets.  

 

Are you looking for ActiveForms or Legacy?   Trying to locate a view or script in legacy took some real detective work sometimes.

Re: Finding the right Plugin in Architect

I'm trying to work with the list view/detail view in Opportunities (still), and change the highlight row & text color. Ive found what I thought to be the correct form, changed the highlight properties of the grid to the values I'd like to try,saved and released the plugin, hard refreshed the client, and nothing. no changes appear.

Listviews (groups) are hard coded items.. not customizable.

Interesting, that conflicts with this:

Also, I just stumbled on a group that has the blue highlight with black text. That tells me this is indeed an editable property.

MikeB is talking about the datagrid control. The (group) ListViews are not built w/a datagrid control and are hard coded as part of the SalesLogix exe itself. Have been for 13+ years and no change is on the horizon.

True, but prior to 6.2 you *could* change the colours of the tab, highlight colours etc, as part of the app.

Re: Finding the right Plugin in Architect

RJ is right.  You can change the color on individual PCs through the use of themes in your windows OS.

 

No longer is my SLX running the cream/blue scheme, I switched it up to the grey/silver theme in windows and found it more appealing to the eye.
