Tip: Getting the handle to a doc on an embedded view

Mon 5 Jul 2004, 03:35 PM

by Ben Langhinrichs
I have heard this question many times, but never seen a really good answer that I remember.
Is there a way to get a handle to the selected document in an embedded view?
Rune Carlsen posted an answer to this very question in the Business Partner forum, and I think it is worth re-posting for others to use:

In a embedded view, there is a "target frame (single click)" event: 

In this, you can add a formula to catch the unid of the document: 

@SetEnvironment("DocUNID" ; @Text(@DocumentUniqueID))

Now, you can do what ever you want on this document, as you have the UNID. At least in @formulas... 

Best regards;
Rune Carlsen

Most excellent outside the box kind of thinking. I hope he posts this on LDD and that Doug Finnear puts it in the FAQ of FAQs...

Not bad, bud what happen when you have opened more documents with embedded view? :-)

So, I will post another tip - in view action you can use

Set doc = db.GetDocumentByID( work.CurrentView.CaretNoteID) and you have solution in script
