This article describes various method calls in Innovator. A bit of a “special interest” topic. However, I could not find a really good overview so far. So I will give it a try by myself.Read More →
When developing multilingual applications, it is often necessary to thoroughly test your application against all target languages. Within Aras Innovator multilanguage values can be used in ItemTypes, Forms, Lists, Properties and much more other locations.
Translations are easy to forget, which will result in strange looking Forms and missing labels. You usually want to avoid changing the language settings in the browser or operating system. And it is not necessary at all….Read More →
This article shows a little trick to improve the lock&feel of your Innovator. We will also demonstrate that it’s always worth to question OOTB features. They often can be extended quite easily. You just have to dare to do it!
The ItemType Action can be used to build custom user interaction elements. The modern variant of Actions are CUI elements. These offer much more flexibility as well as improved design and permission options. But you also need more knowledge to use them.

- Show latest activities first
- Offer more room for vote comments
Restricting methods, actions and form elements is a daily task for Aras administrators. This article shows some possible ways to:

– Restrict execution of Client Methods by using code
– Restrict visibility of Form elements
– Restrict visibility of Actions

Sometimes ridiculously simple things turn out to be useful. Therefore, we start this series with a practical tip that will seem absurdly banal even to people with low demands.
You are looking for a code sample for a specific use case, but cannot find anything suitable online or in the regular documentation? Why not just search for a sample in your own database?
All you need to do is create a new regular… Read More →
