BPM Method Directives

Then you'd be better off using a client-side customization and
triggering off the onChange events of the controls you're interested in,
and targeting the action on the client-side dataset.

There are examples of this in the list archives, or someone will
probably supply one.

I think that I will have a problem with the sales order update method
because it will not trigger the action until the sales order is saved.
I need to have the event triggered when the field is changed.

Hi There,

I am just getting my feet wet with creating a BPM within method directives. Namely, on the SalesOrder.ChangeNeedByDate I have added a calculation to make the ship by date occur a few days earlier as default. This works on the sales order summary and header tabs.

Now I need to apply a bpm akin to this one to the other areas of sales order entry that have the need by date. Namely, the order release change need by date(OrderRel.NeedByDate) and order line change need by date (OrderRel.NeedByDate) areas.

When I search in the Method directives, I already had an event in there that handled the Change Need by date on the SO summary and header tabs. However, there does not seem to be an existing method directive (that is, event) for Order release change need by date or Order line change need by date.

Is the best way to handle this by using a data directive? Do data directives provide the method directives (events) available?

Any other suggestions?

Thanks,
Nancy
You could probably use the Update method
Condition(s) would be when specified field changes from any to any
Action(s) would be to execute your 4GL code
