I have a custom screen with PO OCX

I have a custom screen with PO OCX

I have a custom screen with PO OCX

I have a custom screen with PO OCX on a .NET form. I replaced the Post button with my own new Post button. I wanted to validate only the Items of the vendor can be posted. I could get to the point where the Post did not get fired even when the Items are valid. Below is my code. At the end of the code where I commented "//This event never fires" is the issue. I want "vPostButton.Value = true" to run the Post of the PO. Can you help please. Appreciate your input.

private void btnNewPost_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
//vPostButton = acPO.UIAppControls["APP_Post_Button"];
//vPostButton.Value = false;

bool bOkay = true;
List<string> lstMsg = new List<string>();
string sVendor = dsPOHeader.Fields.FieldByName["VDCODE"].get_Value().ToString();


if (dsPODetail.Exists == true)
if (dsPODetail.Fetch())
string sItem = dsPODetail.Fields.FieldByName["ITEMNO"].get_Value().ToString();
string sUnitCost = dsPODetail.Fields.FieldByName["UNITCOST"].get_Value().ToString();

if (Is_Item_In_VendorItems(sItem, sVendor) == false)
string sMsg = "Item : " + sItem;
bOkay = false;
} while (dsPODetail.Fetch());

if (bOkay == false)
string sMsg = "";
for (int i = 0; i < lstMsg.Count; i++)
sMsg = sMsg + lstMsg[i] + "\n";
MessageBox.Show("Can't Post. The below PO line items are not for Vendor " + sVendor + "\n\n" + sMsg);

// vPostButton = Accpac acPO.UIAppControls["APP_Post_Button"].GetControl();
vPostButton.Value = false; //This event never fires
//vPostButton = acPO.UIAppControls["APP_Post_Button"];
vPostButton.Value = true; //This event never fires

RE: I have a custom screen with PO OCX

I can't read your code - use code tags.

Did you do anything to the original button like disable it or make it not visible? I had a problem similar to this (might have been the PO form - don't remember) but I had to set the original button's .left value to a negative number and NOT set macrovisible to false because the underlying code wouldn't work. I also likely set the tabstop of the button to false OR I set up code so if the user tabbed into the original button that I set focus on my replacement button.

RE: I have a custom screen with PO OCX

I need bit more details, from your side

I can suggest to use using vb control extenders (it's vb6-sdk coding)

capture "On record changing" event to customize for your requirement..
