How to call a Concurrent Program from a Special Menu Item?
September 18, 2011 Leave a comment
Well, we can run our concurrent programs from a Special Menu Item, and if you have a requirement of this sort, you can use the steps below to use Form Personalization Builtin to achieve this task in couple of minutes.
1] First create the Special Menu Item wherever required through Form Personalization. Here I have added a Special Menu Item called ‘Assign Item to a Subinventory’ to the Form-‘INVIDITM’. For that assign the Trigger Event as ‘WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE’.
2] In Actions Tab, choose the type as ‘MENU’ and select the Menu Entry and give a Proper Menu Label.
3] Create the Concurrent Program which you want to attach to this custom menu item. Once created, assign the program to the Request Group of the Responsibility. Also it is required to add the ‘Lunch SRS Form’ Function (Requests: Submit) to the main menu of that responsibility. If you don’t do this step you may get Form Personalization error in later steps.
4] Create one more entry in Form Personalization window with Trigger Event as your custom menu item.
5] Here select the Actions Type as ‘Builtin’ and Builtin Type as ‘Lunch SRS Form’. In the program name give the name of your concurrent program.
6] Validate and Apply Now
Once done, you will be able to view the custom menu item in the Form and when you will click it, it opens the SRS Form with your concurrent program.
