#MSCONNECT GP – Update web client to allow Company based color schemes in GP Power Tools to work

David Meego - Click for blog homepageTime to vote.

This is the fifth in a series of blog posts where I will be highlighting Microsoft Connect product suggestions that need the community’s support. If you agree with the product suggestion, please help get as many votes as you can.

The issue which is the subject of today’s article is being able to change background and font colours for Microsoft Dynamics GP in the Web Client.

Many years ago, I created a VBA customisation which allowed you to change the window background and toolbar colors depending on the company you were logged into. This used the Dexterity Color_SetSystemColor() and Color_ResetSystemColor() command via Continuum and passthrough sanScript code.

Later, I included this same functionality in the Support Debugging Tool and refined it further in GP Power Tools build 20 and added even more features in the upcoming build 21.

However, ever since Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 was released with the Silverlight based Web Client, I have been asking the Dynamics GP development team to add support for those Dexterity functions to the web client so that the color coding functionality could work with the web client.

When they were working on the HTML5 web client, I asked again, but it was not high enough priority to make the final release. Finally, I created a Microsoft Connect product suggestion to get the community’s support. The more votes the suggestion has, the better the chance that it will be included in a future build.

For more information and example screenshots, check out this previous blog post:

So if you want to be able to have company based color schemes in the Dynamics GP Web Client just like you can in the desktop client, please vote using the links below.

#MSCONNECT GP – Bug in taGetPMNextVoucherNumber causes duplicate voucher numbers to be issued

David Meego - Click for blog homepageTime to vote.

This is the fourth in a series of blog posts where I will be highlighting Microsoft Connect product suggestions that need the community’s support. If you agree with the product suggestion, please help get as many votes as you can.

The issue which is the subject of today’s article is eConnect calls for getting the next transaction number generating duplicate numbers, submitted by Steve Endow.

This issue affects sites using eConnect where they have a high throughput of documents happening at the same time. The code that provides the next transaction number is not contained in a SQL Transaction which means it does not detect if the code is being executed more than once at the same time and so two independent calls can receive the same next transaction number. This will cause the second of the transactions to fail to import with a duplicate number error.

I know that Steve’s product suggestion references the Payables Management script (taGetPMNextVoucherNumber), but I would like all of the related “GetNextNumber” scripts reviewed and fixed if necessary.

For more information on the issue, see Steve’s blog post:

So if you think it is important that these eConnect scripts are fixed so they can handle the multi user concurrency issues without returning duplicate numbers, please vote using the links below.

#MSCONNECT GP – Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 Documentation

David Meego - Click for blog homepageTime to vote.

This is the third in a series of blog posts where I will be highlighting Microsoft Connect product suggestions that need the community’s support. If you agree with the product suggestion, please help get as many votes as you can.

The issue which is the subject of today’s article is the lack of updated documentation for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016, submitted by Vaidy Mohan.

Ever since Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 the documentation available for the product has been becoming scarcer. With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 there were 96 files installed into the documentation folder.

From Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 onwards there have been only 15 files in the folder and those have barely been updated for the GP 2015 and GP 2016 releases. If you open the pdf manuals, they mostly refer to GP 2013.

Updates for the documentation for Dexterity and the Dexterity help file as well as the SDK documentation has been lacking in the last releases.

I know that keeping the documentation up to date requires time and resources, but it is a valuable part of any software product, especially something as large and complex and Microsoft Dynamics GP.

So if you want the documentation kept up to date with the software, please vote using the links below.

#VSIT Visual Studio Integration Toolkit build 11 released

David Meego - Click for blog homepageFor the Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP developers out there, I am pleased to announce that the next build of the Visual Studio Integration Toolkit for Microsoft Dynamics GP (VSIT) is now available for download.

The Visual Studio Integration Toolkit was previously known as Menus for Visual Studio Tools (MVST), which was discontinued in October 2014. If you are still using the previous product, please upgrade to the supported product.

This build adds support for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 as well as adding a full installer, digitally signed DLLs and registration system.

Build 11 of Visual Studio Integration Toolkit is available for the following Microsoft Dynamics GP versions:

  • Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 (v11.0),
  • Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 and GP 2013 R2 (v12.0),
  • Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 and GP 2015 R2 (v14.0)
  • Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 (v16.0).

The installer supports multiple instances of Microsoft Dynamics GP as well as silent installs and will automatically install the Dexterity product dictionary and dual signed Dictionary Assembly DLL files into the correct folders for you.

The registration system allows us to track the usage of the tool so that we can support it better. The current menu navigation functionality of the tool does require registration to work, but there is no cost for that registration. You will need to contact Mekorma for registration via their Order Now page to obtain keys for each customer site using Visual Studio Integration Toolkit.

At a later stage additional features will be added to a “Professional” version of the toolkit and these will need to be registered with an annual subscription fee.

Important: When installing VSIT on a system which already has MSVT installed, you will be asked to restart Microsoft Dynamics GP to complete the renaming of the product. You will also need to remove and re-add your reference to the Application.MenusForVisualStudioTools.dll assembly in your Visual Studio projects.

More Information

For more information and download links, please see the Visual Studio Integration Toolkit Portal page:

More information on the additional functionality being added to the “professional” version will be posted on this blog, so watch this space.

Please post comments and feedback.

David

Friday Funny: Impossible Numeric Puzzles

David Meego - Click for blog homepageToday’s Friday Funny comes from something I saw on the internet. I would normally give credit to my source, but as that will also give away the solutions, I will wait until later when I post the solutions.

Can you solve these three numeric puzzles? …… Despite the title of this article, they do have solutions.

Respond in the comments if you think you have solutions, but don’t give away any answers.

Here you go…

Puzzle 1

By only adding one straight line to the following equation make it a true expression.

Note: You are not allowed to change the equals to not equals.

Puzzle1

Puzzle 2

In the same way that three 20’s add up to 60, use the same number three times to create a sum that adds up to 60.

Puzzle2

Puzzle 3

Using only the four digits 2, 3, 4, 5 and the two symbols +, = make a true equation.

Puzzle3

Following challenging my family with these puzzles, I have to add the following clarifications/rules:

  • All puzzles are using base 10. No hexadecimal allowed.
  • In Puzzle 1, you cannot alter the equals sign in any way. For example: changing it to be less than or equal, greater than or equal, or not equal.
  • In Puzzle 2, you cannot add any other mathematical operations.
  • In Puzzle 3, you must use all four digits and two symbols. You cannot rotate the symbols to create multiply symbol or the number 11.

At least my family were trying for creative solutions. But they did manage to solve all three in the end.

Enjoy

David
