Small issue in regards to the contact lookup

Status: New
by Copper Contributor on ‎08-19-2010 06:10 AM

Hi guys,


I've discoverred a small issue with SalesLogix. The problem exists in the LAN client of SalesLogix 7.52.2151.


For some reason, when you access the detail view of a particular contact in Logix and click on the contact field name (see screenshot).



Take note of the options below the lookup. The only option you have is "Within current Group".



Now see the options that appear if we go to Lookup >>> Contacts >>> Last Name



You will now see an extra option (Create a temporary group containing all results.)



Surely both of these should be the same?


Many thanks,

Your specific issue has to do with the Contact and Account Detail Form and how they invoke the Button Click (the old OnLabel Click cypress enable BASIC stuff) lookups in the code.


SLX uses:

Lookup Support Script

LookupByName (strLookupName, strPreFill)
    Dim objLookup

    On Error Resume Next
       Set objLookup = Application.BASICFunctions.LookupItemWithConditionByID (strLookupName, False, "", "", "", strPreFill)


I alter the code on our system to:

        Application.BasicFunctions.DoInvoke "LOOKUP", strLookup

which returns temp groups for me.

I am using brelow code:

Sub NewLookupClick(Sender)
On Error Resume Next
Dim strLookup
Dim blnUseFunction

strLookup = ""
blnUseFunction = False

strLookup = "GC_ACCOUNT_ZSmiley Very HappyataPoolSmiley Very HappyataPool"

If strLookup <> "" Then
If blnUseFunction Then
Application.BasicFunctions.DoInvoke "Function", "Lookup:" & strLookup 'DNL
Application.BasicFunctions.DoInvoke "Lookup", strLookup 'DNL
End If
ErrorCheck Application.Translator.Localize("Error accessing SalesLogix VBScript functions:")
End If 'if strLookup <> ""

End Sub

It is not rasing any error, but how could I get result (ID)?

Also how could I recognise group creation?

Appreciating your efforts,
