Calling job from button

Posted on by Microsoft Employee

Hey all,

I have a requirement that i need to call a job from a button from.. let's say vendor form. I already have the job created. Now, i don't know how to implement this job to be called from a form's button. If there's a tutorial about this i hope you can put the link below on the comment box or if anyone have any kind of solution for this.

Thanks.

Anisa.

    going back to basics of OOP

    1) enter by main method, of class

    2) initialize by creation of object of class.

    You can call a class just like how you did for the job. Everyone told you about moving code from job to a class because, jobs are usually written in ax to test or verify a logic before you actually implement it.

    A job may be overwritten by some one who is working in the same environment. A class on the other hand everyone knows is an implemented logic for some functionality. They won't bother to change it or overwrite it with new one.

    Thanks all, i've tried assign my job to action menu item, and put it on my form's button group. Why should i move my code to a class? if i already move it to a class, how can i call it? I mean, i call it from where? All of you just saying i should move my job to a class, but didn't explain how to call it, is it from form's control? Where, and how? Thanks.

    You can attach this job to an action menu item and map it to a menuitem button in the form. You will have to initialize the caller from _args object in job.

    Jens above said it correctly, You should be implementing your code in a class not a job.

    You can use two ways for that

    1. Call by Action menu item.

      Create an action menu item referring to your job and then call you action menu item

       

      MenuFunction menuFunction;
      
      menuFunction = new MenuFunction(menuItemActionStr(NameofYourActionMenu), MenuItemType::Action);
      menuFunction.run();

    2. Call by X++

       

       

      Note: above both ways are not recommended. Consider migrating your code into a class.

    You should move your code to a class and call the class.
