  • Blog Post: UI Add-in close events don’t fire when SBA is closed

    When a UI Add-in form is open and SBA 2006/Office Accounting 2007 is closed, the UI Add-in form closes without firing the Closed or Closing events. This prevents the developer from asking if the user would like to save their changes before the form closes. SBA forms, if the SBA shell is closed, ask the...
  • Blog Post: Moving SBA SDK 1.0 Add-ins to SBA SDK 2.0 (Office Accounting 2007)

    The next version of SBA SDK is coming (under a different product name) and it's time to start looking at some of the changes in the Add-ins area. Referencing SBAAPI.dll First of all, we found out that our 1.0 SDK sample for UIAddIn, we were referencing SBAAPI (when we are always telling you not...
  • Blog Post: SBA Business Logic Add-in Sample in VB.NET (ISdkAddInDriver)

    A couple months ago I posted a step by step process for doing a Business Logic Add-in Sample in C#, so finally here is the second part for doing this in VB.NET. The instructions are pretty much copied from the original post but I have translated the code to VB and verified it. Let's start. 1. Open...
  • Blog Post: How to programmatically verify if an Add-in is installed

    I wanted to post a quick sample that I think might be useful. The escenario that I ran into is when you have two Add-ins that complement each other, a UI Add-in and a Business Logic Add-in . Since the user can enable only one of them and disable the other, you might want to check for this and then ask...
  • Blog Post: SBA SDK : Finding the Kits that contain my Item in VB.NET

    I must confess I'm a little rusty in my VB because I don't use it often enough. But I wanted to post this sample in Visual Basic .NET. I used the Code Translator from CarlosAg and it worked perfectly, except that it couldn't translate the implicit convertion of an int to a string when this is used in...
  • Blog Post: SBA SDK : Finding the Kits that contain my Item

    This is a quick sample I put together after a post in our newsgroups. I don't think we have this functionality but I could see that some users (especially those with thousands of items in their inventory) could use this. So this sample is to show how the classes in our SDK will allow you to have this...
  • Blog Post: How to programmatically install your Addin to SBA

    Yes, SBA supports different ways to install an Addin but I do not recommend doing anything but installing Addins to the GAC. Why? Because moving forward we want your Addins to work with future versions of SBA, so if you install in the installation directory of SBA 2006 then future versions will not know...
  • Blog Post: ISdkAddInDriver Sample

    I didn't work on the business logic addins that we support in the product, but they have a very interesting model to allow addins to be called before saving/deleting an account or document. The bad thing is we didn't ship a sample in our SDK and I just did a quick search and couldn't find any out there...
