Get the ID of newly opened Form

Hello all, 

I'm looking for the proper way to fill some fields into a newly Purchase order  form.

I'm filling a purchase order.  If some Item needs anything more from another provider:  a second Purchase order has to be opened and filled with some infos.


Here is my actual code ( which opens the 2nd Purchase order form, but doesn't fill the fields at all ):


if (flag) {
int Combien = NbItem * 2;
int rang = 2;
MessageBox.Show("Un ou plusieurs articles de votre commande exige une commande de roues livrées chez le fabricant.\n\nCliquez OK pour procéder à la commande de " + Combien + " kits de roues. \n\n", "OK");

SwissAddonFramework.UI.Components.Form.OpenFormByKey("22", null );
TextEdit.GetFromUID(pVal.Form, "4").Value = "Some content";
TextEdit.GetFromUID(pVal.Form, "16").Value = "Some content";

Matrix tab = Matrix.GetFromUID(pVal.Form, "38");
tab.SetValue("1", (rang + 0), "ItemCode1");
tab.SetValue("1", (rang + 1), "ItemCode2");
tab.SetValue("11", (rang + 0), Combien);
tab.SetValue("11", (rang + 1), Combien);


I've red and tried like



but, still, nothing results good out of that.





  • To be more acurate, I have to add that my code did something:  it wrote "Some content" into the original form instead of the destination one.  About the Matrix part: nothing.

  • I found the solution, so I give it to those who are looking for the same.



    //First: keep track of the actual active Form

    Form FormA = Form.GetActiveForm();

    //Open a new form

    Form.OpenFormByKey("22", null);

    //Capture the newly opened Form
    Form FormB = Form.GetActiveForm();

    //Set the new form into ADD status
    FormB.Mode = SwissAddonFramework.UI.Components.ModeComponent.FormModes.ADD;

    //Now you can write into the new form

    TextEdit.GetFromUID(FormB, "4").Value = "8881231234";

    //And even pass info from FormA to FormB
    TextEdit.GetFromUID(FormB, "92").Value = TextEdit.GetFromUID(FormA, "92").Value;
