  • Mapping a Program for Regular UIAPI Interface Programs
    1
    Navigate to the program in QAD Enterprise Applications that you want to generate QDocs for.
    2
    In the first field, press Ctrl+W. A message, Auto pop-up enabled, displays.

    Pressing Ctrl+W in a QGen Session
    3
    Enter data in the first field or select an existing record to edit and press Enter to move to the next field.
    Important: You must press Enter on each field in the program to launch the automatic pop-up for each field. If you press Go to move from a field, you may move to the next frame and the remaining fields in the previous frame are not mapped.
    The Field Info pop-up displays. For each field, enter the required values.

    Field Info Pop-Up
    Label
    The label value is the field label that displays on the QAD Enterprise Applications screen. This is not available for editing.
    Node Name
    This is the field name displayed in humpback notation to conform to XML standards. For example, so_nbr is displayed as soNbr. This is not available for editing. Underscores are removed from the node names.
    Unique ID
    This is an alphanumeric value generated during mapping of a field. It is used to distinguish between different fields in a program that use the same node name. This is not available for editing.
    Primary Key
    A Yes in this field designates this field as one of the primary keys of the parent or child records. For more on iterations, see Map Iterations.
    For UI APIs, set this to Yes on any field that you want to include in the response schema.
    Delete Field
    If you can delete a record when the cursor is in this field—for example if the F5=Delete option displays in the program status line—set this to Yes. Set this to Yes for all fields in a frame that allow a deletion. Otherwise, accept the default of No.
    Mandatory
    Yes indicates the field must have a value.
    First Entry Event
    Set this field to Yes if a special action is required the first time the field is encountered in an incoming QDoc request. These are usually fields that have navigation consequences, such as the Line Format (S/M) field in Sales Order Maintenance (7.1.1) that controls whether the sales order lines will be entered line-by-line or in multi-line mode.
    Choose Event
    The default value is No. Change this to Yes if the field is a field in a selection list.
    Action to proceed
    Press the down arrow to open the drop-down list on this field and select the key required to leave the current field and move to the next field.
    4
    Press Go to save and exit the pop-up data. The system message Updated: < field name > displays at the bottom of the screen.
    5
    If First Entry Event for the field is set to Yes, the First Entry Event pop-up displays. Otherwise, you move to the next field.
    6
    If you move to the next field, enter data and press Enter. The Field Info pop-up displays for this field. By default, the key you used to exit the field is used for the Action to Proceed value.
