Web Lookups as a smart part

Status: Under Consideration
by Silver Contributor on ‎10-07-2011 06:47 AM

Just went through a dozen or so forms to add a column to the Opportunity Lookup....and change the column order.

 

Not only were there 4 resx files for Activity (with basically the SAME properties in each one, so much for maintainability and non-reduncant code)......but each lookup is seperately maintained.....

 

OK so the Web still has a lot of catching up to do.....

 

Have a smart part repository of lookups that are referenced by the forms.....just like on SLX LAN.....one central spot for the Lookups....by Entitiy and Lookup Name (and key field)...you change the smart part lookup in one place and it changes for ALL forms that use the same lookup....... you want a slightly different Opportunity Description lookup...then create another lookup for Opportunity Description and each lookup has a required lookup Name field that is referenced in the calling forms.

 

Has anyone figured out why an Entity can't have a central resx kind of file for its grid and label header's,  format? Is it really necessary to go to 4, 10, 20 places to change the name of a grid or lookup column? It's the old Company vs Account.....or Opportunity vs Deal scenario...... or Description (field name) vs Regarding (usage by 99.9% of the SLX World).....

We were told at Boot Camp that SLX is going to ONE Activity Detail form.....ONE History Detail Form.....

 

That's a start for chaning the Opportunity Lookup's in 24 forms.....

 

Still would like to see Lookup's as runtime fetchable controls as they are on the LAN side.....have an sdata based dialog form that fetches the desired columns (i.e a lookup) for LookupA vs LookupB (each lookup stored as its own form).....one spot for Opportunity Description Lookup Number 1.....referred to by many forms......one place to change...yea I know.....{One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
