Timezone and locale are integral concepts that one should be aware of when implementing a System. For example. if you create a database in PostgreSql, it will use the default System settings for the database. Lets say you have a server in UK and your client is US. If the client tries to retrieve the current date or time, it is going to show the UK time and not the US one.
Today I encountered a different issue in our client place where the Ubuntu timezone and PostgreSql timezone were showing a incorrect values. Instead of Indian Standard Time (IST) it was showing Pacific Daylight Time(PDT). These are the steps that I followed to change the timezone to IST in PostgreSql and Ubuntu. Changing timezone in Ubuntu:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdataYou will be prompted to choose the continent and then the area. Provided screen shots where we configure the location.
Use TAB key to navigate to the OK button and then press Enter.
The changes will get reflected immediately. To check it you can open a n…
Using display logic in Openbravo is a primitive task but might seem a lot more difficult until you get hold of it...The display logic can be applied at the window-field level. Lets see a example. We have two fields married which is a check box and children which is a text box. Now at runtime we wish to display the children text box only if the married is ticked. So to apply this Logic we need to write a display condition in the children field. The logic is very simple. just type @married@='Y' in the display logic column of the field children.Now for read only logic, if you want the children field to be defaulted to 0 instead of hiding it, we need to do it at the table-column level. In the children column type@married@='Y' in the read only logic field and set the default value field as 0.
Having been worked on Openbravo 3.0 UI for more than a year now (right from RC1) , Openbravo has leaped ahead of most contemporary ERP's in terms of UX design and usability. And a part of the credit has to go to the community too as they were actively involved in finalizing the UX and also involved enthusiastically in tested out the RC versions and providing their feedback.
In this post, I have tried to draw limelight on the basic UI components that are being used in Openbravo and their corresponding smartclient components. This is just to provide a very high level idea on how the entire architecture is coupled together. I have tried to use a single screen shot of Openbravo interface and tried to map the base components here.
The hierarchy can be visualized in simple terms as follows:
Exhaustive information on these components are provided in the Openbravo Wiki here.
Most of these components are defined and managed from individual files (or code) thereby making it really easy to …
