Opening Account Screen from External ApplicationYour last visit to this thread was on 1/1/1970 12:00:00 AM

Got what should be a relatively simple task, but having trouble finding the appropriate info.
We have a telephony application that can fire a pseudo VBScript. We can find the appropriate Account ID by looking up the incoming phone number, but need a way to instantiate an SLX object / function that will "pop" the account screen.

Is this possible?

I am not an expert, but this code works here for me:

Set slx = CreateObject("SalesLogix.SlxApplication")
Call slx.BasicFunctions.ShowDetails("ACCOUNT", "A02TLA200000")

Where 'A02TLA200000' is the ACCOUNTID you want

This does require the SLX Sales Client to be logged on already though

You're welcome. I had that little script waiting for something to use it for.

Do you know if it is possible to set the focus on saleslogix once the account has been selected, not a major problem the staff here only need a single click to maximise/bring the window to the front, but they are lazy and probably will moan anyway

Add the following to force SLX into the foreground:

Set slx = CreateObject("SalesLogix.SlxApplication")
Call slx.BasicFunctions.ShowDetails("ACCOUNT", "A02TLA200000")
slx.BringToFront

BTW, you'll see a C# example of this in the article posted here:

Thanks for that, it does the job nicely.

And on the C# front, we'll be inserting the code into another app to fire it so we needed VB, but i'm sure that will come in handy at some point

Quick newbie question. If all I have is the customers phone number can I just invoke the ShowDetails() function like this to pop the screen:

Call slx.BasicFunctions.ShowDetails("MAINPHONE", "9725551234")

Sorry if the answer is obvious. I know virtually nothing about SalesLogix but a customer of ours is interested in knowing how "easy" it would be to screen-pop their SalesLogix desktops when a call is delivered to their agents.

Some of the stuff I've seen on the forum leads me to believe that I they would actually need to perform a lookup of the account ID using the OLEDB provider first and then they could point the client at the account.

Thanks!
Eric

Eric, AFAIK,

You will need the account id. I assume querying the DB for a match between the phone number and deriving the Account ID would work. Using the Show Details requires the Form name and the ID I believe. The previous samples elude to this.
