Okay, another delayed post, as at the end of day two, there was a sponsor pub crawl in Downtown Fargo, so I didn’t get a chance to do a post. (I’m going to stop saying they’re delayed, as it is obvious that they are.)
I had quite a busy day on day 2 with a lot of sessions.
The first session, I was attended was Developing All-In-One Document Viewer. This session showed how they developed the All-In-One Document Viewers. One point the presenter stressed, was that there had been no new additions to Dexterity to allow these windows to be created; it was all done using standard functionality.
It’s very interesting how it was done, as these windows look and behave most unlike the other windows in Microsoft Dynamics GP.
The short version of this, is that there are other controls laid over the usual scrolling window controls to hide the 3D effects and a temporary table used to control how many records are displayed. Tricksy.
As a side note, I took my life in my hands for this session and sat next to David Musgrave (he’d tried to poison me earlier in the week).
