AxPath is coming: Sidax 0.4 beta 0 + Tabax 0.2.10

download tabax | download sidax

There is the first AxPath implementation. AxPath let you store a link for some record in database or an AOT item in the form of URI and then send it to a collegue or open it. So, for example you can copy link to the some purchase order, send it to colleague and it will be opened by colleague (so purchase orders form is opened and positioned at specific order).

Now Tabax, and Sidax support this technique. I am planning integration of AxPath scheme in the system letting AxPath links to be embedded in the webpages, mails, etc.

so, in Sidax:

  • you can copy AxPath of the menu item in main menu with right click
  • you can navigate AxPath via "go component"

in Tabax:
  • AxPath:
    • when pressing the "Copy" button it copies axpath of the current record to the clipboard
    • when pressing the «Ctrl+Shift+Copy» it copies AOT items, currently selected
    • if you insert axpath to the input box it navigates the path given

  • now tabs are switched correctly under AX3KR3
  • X++ calculator in the input box:
    • enter ?<X++ expression> and press Enter to evaluate an expression
    • enter ?<X++ statement> and press Enter to run a statement

I am going to implement "favorits" in the sidax based on AxPath
