This article is an announcement of new functionality.
We do not recommend that you use this article to learn the new functionality.
A full description of the new functionality will be provided in the documentation for the appropriate version.
For a complete list of changes in the new version, see the v8Update.htm file.
Planned in version 8.3.21
Take advantage of URLs to pass system object indications to your colleagues. It is much more convenient than a document number or a catalog item code. Instead of searching by number or code, a colleague only needs to insert the passed URL into the Global search string (or into the "Go to link" dialog box) or, if the URL is received in the Collaboration System message, just click it.
In version 8.3.21, URLs will have advanced features.
Copying a URL to clipboard with a presentation
The "Copy name" option will appear in the dialog box for getting a URL
When this option is enabled, not only the URL will be copied to the clipboard, but also the object presentation:
Order 000000019 from 01.07.2020 23:07:08: e1cib/data/Document.Order?ref=bbf30050ba5c887711e1fe6190994fe7
If we insert such URL to a text document or email body, it will be much more informative for the addressee if next to the link there are also details of the object to which the URL leads.
If you insert such URL to the Collaboration System and the object is found by the URL in the current infobase, the message will display a hyperlink to the object (as if inserting a simple link), and the first part of the text (object presentation) will not be displayed to avoid duplication of information.
Getting a URL to an object of the current row in the list form
You will find an option for getting a URL to an object of the current row (in this case, an order) in the list form in the dialog box for getting a URL.
That means that if you are in the list form and want to get a URL to an object of the current row (for example, to send it to a colleague in an email or message of the Collaboration System), you do not need to open the object form itself, which saves time.
The form table extension for a dynamic list will have the AllowGetCurrentRowURL boolean property. If it is set to True, the new option will be available in the dialog box for getting a URL.
The "Get URL" form command will show the new option for getting a URL if the current item is a table linked to a dynamic list and this table is allowed to get the current row URL. A URL to the current row of the dynamic list will be available in the GetURLsListProcessing() form handler.
The "Get URL…" command will be added to the table. The command is available if the table is allowed to get the URL of the current row.
New values will be added to the StandardFormURLVariant system enumeration:
We hope that the new functionality will enhance user experience of our products.
