How to: Specify TabControl IDs By Using Transformation Input
This topic applies only to Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 SP1. For more information about the hotfix for the RTM version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009, see Hotfix on PartnerSource.
In some cases, you may want to specify control and action IDs instead of allowing the form transformation tool to automatically assign IDs. To specify control and action IDs, you must modify the MoveElements.xml file or the TransformPages.xml file, which are two of five transformation input files (TIF).
This procedure describes how to use the TIF Editor to specify the ID of a FastTab that is transformed from the TabControl on a form. For more information about how to specify the ID of an action, see How to: Add Actions to a Page By Using Transformation Input. For more information about how to specify the ID of a FactBox, see How to: Add FactBoxes to Pages By Using Transformation Input. For more information about how to specify the ID of a Home Part, see How to: Add Home Parts to a Role Center By Using Transformation Input.
Before you begin this procedure, you must do the following:
Install the Transformation Input File (TIF) Editor. For detailed steps, see How to: Install the Transformation Input File Editor.
Add your forms to the TIF Editor, either by importing the transformation input files for the standard application forms or by using the Get Forms command. For more information, see the following topics:
To specify a control ID for a TabControl
In the Transformation Forms window, select a form for which you want to specify a TabControl ID, click Input, point to Add, and then click New IDs in TabControl.
In the New ID in TabControl window, do the following:
In the Control ID field, specify the ID of the TabControl on the form.
In the PageNamesML field, specify the PageNamesML value for the tab on the TabControl that will be transformed to a new FastTab on a page. For example, enter ENU=TabName.
In the NewID field, specify the ID that you want to assign to the new FastTab control.
Close the New ID in TabControl window to save your changes.
