Example Screen Pop code

We are trying to do a screen pop application to pop SalesLogix.  I have looked at the sdk examples, but I am not finding any examples that externally controls the SalesLogix screen.  Can anyone point me to an example?

 

Thanks,

 

Marvin

Re: Example Screen Pop code

In SalesLogix Windows/LAN.. you can do this by simply providing a "shortcut" of the form:

 

  slx:TableName/PrimaryKey

 

For example.. a Contact:

   slx:CONTACT/C6UJ9A00001W

 

If SalesLogix is logged in/open, it will jump to the correct record.. if it is NOT open/Logged in, you will be prompted to login and then it will proceed to the correct record.

Re: Example Screen Pop code

I assume you are meaning a command line option to SalesLogix.exe.  I am able to open a "new" window and go to the proper contact but am not able to make the existing window jump to the correct record.  Is there an additional flag i need in order to enable this?

It works both ways just fine. There's nothing you can change/set. It's all "hard-coded" in SalesLogix (exe).

Re: Example Screen Pop code

Is there something wrong with my command line?  This is what I am testing with.

 

"C:\Program Files\SalesLogix\SalesLogix.exe" slx:CONTACT/CA2EK0013516 /b SALESLOGIX_EVAL /n barb /p changeme /nosplash

 

Running the shortcut a second time opens a second instance of the client (to the proper contact) instead of poping the first instance to this contact.    What am I doing wrong?

Re: Example Screen Pop code

Create a standard desktop shortcut (or a hyperlink in a document type that supports (active) hyperlinks) and ONLY use:

  slx:CONTACT/CA2EK0013516

Re: Example Screen Pop code

I tried the first option of the shortcut, but still get the same result.

 

For my shortcut, I have:

  • Target: "C:\Program Files\SalesLogix\SalesLogix.exe" slx:CONTACT/CA2EK0013516
  • Start In: "C:\Program Files\SalesLogix"
  • Run: Normal Window

 

I am running SalesLogix 7.5.3.4233 for the SalesLogix Client.   This client is running in a virtual machine which we are also using for the Administrator and SQL. 

 

Is there something else I can try to help me understand my mistake?

Re: Example Screen Pop code

Target is wrong.. just use: slx:CONTACT/CA2EK0013516

 

The "system" knows it's a SalesLogix Shortcut... it's in the Windows Shell extensions in the registry.
