Reference Data Sources Display methods.

Posted on by 231


I have a problem with Reference Data source on custom forms. Let me explain it, i created custom table which is referenced VendInvoiceJour via Foreign Key Relation with recid. I need the show exchange rates on my custom form but it should be display divide by 100.

So i try to code extension VendInvoiceJour and create my own display method for exchangeRate. But at the end i cant see my methods on form grid.

Display methods cant be used on referenced data sources ?

    Hi Ferhat,

    I don't think you can use the display method which is from Referenced data source table. That's why you only have Field, FieldGroups and ReferenceDataSource node. It doesn't have methods node.

    So it will be better if you add the display method on your custom table or add the VendInvoiceJour table as a original datasource not Reference datasource.
