In some cases, users of Warehouse Insight will want to be able to add comments to documents from their mobile devices. This article will walk through the steps and code required to add a Purchase Order comments from the device.
This article requires the following:
Business Central version 15 or higher
Warehouse Insight Advanced WMS version 2.0 or higher
The following steps/code can be modified or extended as required and assume a base level familiarity with Business Central and Warehouse Insight.
Add a Menu
In Business Central navigate to the “Warehouse Insight Device Menus” page.
Choose the “Form” drop down option “Application”.
Choose the Application “PURCHASE_IN_DOC” from the lookup list.
Create a new Menu at the end with the following properties:
Caption: Add Comment
Event ID: 2000000
Standard Action: Custom Text
Title: Enter Comment
Create the Extension
Create an extension codeunit to process the request and save the comment.
Custom events must be handled before the base product execution occurs. Therefore, we will be subscribing to the “OnBeforeProcessEvent” and listening for the event defined on the Menu (ID 2000000).
Note: Custom Event ID’s should start in the 2 million range.
The code for saving the comment is given below. When done, the custom event must indicate the event was handled to avoid errors being generated by base Warehouse Insight.
Note: Most custom dialogs return their result values in a variable called “action_result”. See the Developers Guide for more information.
Once the extension codeunit has been published comments can now be added via the “Add Comment” menu option on the document.
Note: The codeunit .al file has been attached to this article for easier reference.
