I did create a table with few columns and new view for this table to view, add, modify records in this table. I did create new button on Slgx standard tollbar which is calling this new view. All I'm geting is this error message. Can someone hlep me figure it out? This is second day I'm trying to solve this problem. Saleslogix version is 3.1 with Interbase DB.

You've used a bound form which needs context (ie: which record to display, or if it is creating a new one). When you invoke the form from a menu or toolbar it does not get this context, which is why you're seeing the error.

Instead, create a script that invokes the form using ShowViewForRecord. In the script you will pass to ShowViewForRecord either a record ID to display a particular record or a blank string for adding a new record. See some info on ShowViewForRecord here: http://www.slxdeveloper.com/page.aspx?action=viewarticle&articleid=48

Rereading your post I noticed you are on SLX 3.1 - Ouch

To be honest, I do not know if a ShowViewForRecord function even existed in 3.1. If it does, it probably does not work right (there were some known issues with this function in early days). For v3.1, I would say you're likely S.O.L. and will have to use a Manage form, which means you won't be able to using binding and instead will need to script any updates or inserts to the database yourself.

AFAIK - ShowViewForRecord was brought in initially as part of the Support Client and not avaiilable in the Sales Client until quite "late".

That sounds right. Looks like Andrew will be scripting it all to do the insert/update manually in your own code (which means you need to use a manage form)

Hi Ryan,


I have created a modal form that is used as a "Look-Up" form - in other words, you enter some text into a box - hit a search button and it just displays results.


I dont want or need it to be bound to a record automatically during form creation.  I have all the code in the appropriate events and it was, in fact,  working at one time.  I'm not sure exactly what changed, however I am now getting the same error as Andrew above. 


Is there a way to just load the form without binding to a record first.  I'm running 7.5.2.  Any help would be appreciated.

Only option is to launch it using ShowViewForRecord or to use a Manage form (which is not a bound form and has no record context). It sounds like that is the best option for you (to use a manage form).
