Current Opportunity object reference?

Hi folks,

I'm still looking for a way to "get" the currently selected ("Current") Sales Opportunity, whether currently selected on the Opportunities tab, or currently selected on the Opportunities List view.  

 

Has Sage finally complied with this long-standing SDK improvement request, and/or has anyone developed a technique that can be used on current AND PREVIOUS versions of ACT!?

 

I also need access to the "current" Activity, Note, and History, but for now, I'd settle for the SalesOpp and adapt it for the other objects, if necessary.

 

Thanks in advance,

Geoff

I think you are gonna have to grab the windows object, and then search for the opp/activity/etc from there.  I've gotten this request a couple times, and always turned it down as too annoying.

Nick,

I hope you're wrong, and that Sage has put this ability into some recent release of ACT!, as has been requested by add-on partners for quite some time now.  Would some one from Sage please chime in, before I waste a bunch of time doing it the hard way, as Nick suggests?

 

Thanks in advance,

Geoff
