Posted on slxdeveloper.com was a question on how to create custom smart parts for SalesLogix Web Client. Now I like custom smart parts, so much so that I find myself eventually going there quite often. You might say this is counter intuitive as you should just ‘Set it and forget it’ with the OTB form editor and data binding capabilities. This is where I somewhat deviate on that thought process. I find that the forms editor makes for me anyways a great prototype starting point where you can get the UI set up just so. But after its setup I find myself happily in Visual Studio making edits to clean up the generated code or have the smart part inherit some further base class to provide a deeper level of functionality.
I will continue happily work in both environments and really focus on getting the work done for the customer.
