of all I want to congratulate the team for the work done here.
I've spend time trying to find an open source ERP with a real
community, struggling with openERP, Tryton, weberp & al
before finally founding Dolibarr : A real open source software,
not too big, not too small, easy to enter into code, well
structured, with a clever module base system and with a real
documentation to start without being lost immediately.
for the work guys, Dolibarr Rocks!
the hard part :
written a module to synchronize contacts between Dolibarr and a
Gmail account, so Dolibarr contacts can be easily viewed and
managed from a smartphone, but I am a little confuse with the
menu system. My module need to insert a new entry on the highest
level of the third party left menu. Finally, I'm using
the printLeftBlock() hook, checking that
($_SESSION["mainmenu"]=='companies') to do it.
this hook is called after the print of the search forms,
bookmarks, and help, so my menu is a little bit lost at the
bottom... Is this the good way to do this? If yes, Do you think
it is possible to move this hook call just aftter the
"$menuleft->showmenu();" in main.inc.php, or maybe better to
call it twice : Once at the place it is now and once after the
showmenu(), but with different values set in $parameters array ?
check the sources in 3.3; this will not hurt any base module,
but of course I don'k know if this hook is used by external
do you think this module could be candidate to Dolistore? Did I
have to ask if it has any interest to end users on the forum
before submitting it? You can find a full description of it here
only in French for now)
also written a module based on canvas and extrafields to manage
products creation and presentation, allowing different fields to
be displayed based on the category selected for the product.
I got troubles on menu system : Canvas mechanism need to be
called with 'address@hidden' in $_GET when creating
a new product, so menu entry for product->new need to by
modified... The only way I found was to hard sql update url
column in llx_menu table for titre="NewProduct" in my module
activation, but this is not a very clean solution : It requires
to use the Auguria menu system only, and the module need to be
reactivated if the menu system is changed.
there an other way to manage this?, if not, could I propose a
patch with a solution to this?
for this long post and thanks in advance for your answers.
