Application Enabler
Foundation 23.1

Ensure that the screen you wish to enable is visible and can be selected with a single mouse click.

To begin enabling an application:

  1. In Application Enabler Configuration, click New GP-Screen or the Configure a new Dynamics GP screen toolbar button.
  2. Application Enabler Configuration prepares to capture the first input screen to be enabled.
  3. As you move the mouse across the line-of-business application, areas of your screen are highlighted by a selection box, which encloses the area selected for capture. Place your mouse over the line-of-business application you wish to enable. Move your mouse until the selection box encloses the entire line-of-business application screen and left-click to select it. It is possible (but not necessarily desirable) to select individual line-of-business application form fields (i.e., text boxes), in which case the selection box encloses the form field.
  4. Application Enabler Configuration extracts the name of the line-of-business application screen and displays the Property Page dialog box:

    In some cases, the line-of-business application name may not appear as you wish. Rename the screen by replacing the default name. You can use this identification method if the name/path for the application is static.


    If you change the text in the Caption field and you are using the caption to identify the screen, the screen may not be identified correctly for your configuration. If this occurs, you must reconfigure the enabled application to reflect the changed caption text.

    If the name/path is dynamic, you can configure Screen Identification Strings for the screen. These strings should be elements on the screen that do not change. To create Screen Identification Strings:

  5. Click New. The Static Elements dialog box is displayed:
  6. Click Select Field.

    You can also manually enter values, but the Select Field button can provide easy, faster, and more accurate results.

  7. A cursor with a scroll icon is displayed.

    Using this cursor, select a field that identifies the screen.

  8. Click OK.
  9. Repeat the above steps for each string you need to configure.
  10. When done configuring screen identification strings, click Next.
