AssetAssignActivity Method

AssetAssignActivity assigns an activity in the Asset Dispatch Board. You can configure this method, and use it to enable drag-and-drop events for business components configured to appear along the y-axis of the Asset Dispatch Board.

In the Asset DB Planned GanttChart AX Applet, the business components shown vertically on the left are the Y business components (the y-axis). The X business component is the object to schedule (the x-axis). The scheduled object is normally an activity. This method updates the asset ID for the X business component as defined in the Drag and Drop Update Field business service user property.

For example, Asset Mgmt - Asset in the Asset Dispatch Board is the Y business component, and Action is the X business component. When a user drags an action to the Asset Dispatch Board to assign an asset, this method inserts the object ID of the Asset Mgmt - Asset business component into the Asset Id field for the Action business component.

If a new Dispatch Board has accounts on the y-axis, then Account is the Y business component. You can change the user property on this method to update the account ID. In this case, this method inserts the object ID for the account into the Account Id field for the Action business component.

If pre- or post-processing must occur on the drag-and-drop business event to support a specific business process, then you can access the arguments for this method from custom code.

Invoked From

This method is called by the Asset DB Planned GanttChart AX Applet when a user drops an activity to the Asset Dispatch Board.
