Re: Need Help on Custom Sub Entity Table

Hi snsindore,


If I understand you correctly you want to display the contents of your custom sub entity (CSE) in different GUI's from within a single Tab in ACT!.

Secondly you would like to be able to use the One-Click to Excel to export out the Data for the CSE.


In answer to point that should be fairly straight forward creating the Tab, I think you can find smaple code on this in the SDK package for creating a new Tab. Next you just need to dock=fill it with a Custom Control and plugin your business logic to take care of the events.


With relation to the second point, I do not think it is possible to overload/override the finctionality of the export to excel feature to force in your own CSE. You may need to look at just creating your own Toolbar Button and then putting in the logic for the export there. Unfortunately I can't think of any quick way off the top of my head other than this long-winded methodology.
