Modifier with VBA
The Modifier with VBA makes it easy and safe to modify the Dynamics GP interface through customizations such as rearranging windows elements, hiding fields, or changing graphic images and message verbiage. VBA in Microsoft Dynamics GP allows us to create new windows, add business validations and logic to windows and reports, and create VBA forms that add new capabilities to Dynamics GP.
- Eliminate repetitive manual entry of fields by using field defaults based on user and/or company currently logged in, either when the screen is loaded or after user makes on screen selections.
- Hide GP fields that are not used or relevant to your company.
- Add new GP fields
- Display calculated fields (Due Date)
- Display/edit fields from another system (Serial #’s, WO’s, etc)
- Change Verbiage of screen title or field names
- Linking lookups to fields
- Granting security to modified windows
Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP
Visual Studio Tools for Dynamics GP offers software developers the managed code environment of Visual Studio and all the features of the .NET Framework to create integrations for Dynamics GP. Developers can create native .NET forms that have the look of standard Dynamic GP windows and can incorporate any available .NET control. Developers have access via .NET code to windows, fields, tables and other Dynamic GP application resources, including fields created by Modifier. Developers can also register for events occurring in windows, fields, and other resources so .NET code can be triggered by user actions.
