Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 SmartList Fixed Width Left Pane

Microsoft Dynamics GPIn July last year, Frank Hammelly posted a SmartList customisation for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 on his blog gp2themax.

I’ve recently been taking a look at Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 and decided to see if I could use Modifier to reproduce this customisation for GP 2013 (I have no reason to believe the customisation posted by Frank won’t work with 2013, but I wanted to dabble with Modifer and this seemed a good starting point); the customisation can be downloaded at the bottom of this post.

The screenshots below show SmartList in both it’s default size and maximised with the left pane remaining a static size and the right pane occupying the rest of the window;

VBA Customisation To Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Login Window To Display Desktop Alert If Caps Lock On

Microsoft Dynamics GPIn 2009 Patrick Roth, on the Developing for Dynamics GP blog, posted a customisation for the Microsoft Dynamics GP login window which displays a message box if the caps lock is on when the user goes to enter their password.

Then, back in July, Aaron Berquist on his blog High Dynamic Range, posted an article on using VBA to create a desktop alert to users which doesn’t take focus away from the application.

I decided to take a look and see if I could combine these two ideas into one and have a desktop alert displayed when the user has caps lock on when logging in, which is far less intrusive than the message box approach by Patrick.

The result is a customisation of the login window (which you can download at the end of the post) to display an alert if the user has the Caps Lock on using the desktop alert code Aaron posted.

The code displays a message to the user if they have Caps Lock on when the login window displays, or when they tab into the Password field if they haven’t already seen the message;

Desktop Alert

The customisation was created in GP 2013 and has only been tested in this version of GP but has been tested on Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 8. As with everything I post here, it is supplied entirely without warranty and you use it at your own risk.

However, if you do have problems let me know and I’ll see what I can do to fix them.
