FlexiCapture lets you create handlers for events that affect batches, documents and fields.
Event handlers are stored in batch types and Document Definitions. You can find their settings on the Event Handlers tab of the Properties dialog box of:
- Batch Types (for Document Definitions);
- Projects (for all batch types in the project except for those for which event handlers have been set up in batch type properties).
- Document Definitions (for documents of the current type).
Document events for batch types
These event handlers are set up in a batch's properties or in a batch type's properties.
Document event for the current batch type
These event handlers are set up in a Document Definition's properties.
Event handlers for fields can also be set up in a Document Definition's properties (see below).
Note: If the same event handler is set up for batch types and the current document type, the event handler for the document will be executed first, followed by the event handler for batch types.
Storing procedures in global modules
We recommend adding procedures that you plan to use in sever event handlers to a global module. To do this, select Events from the drop-down list on the toolbar of the script editor.
Note: Global modules are not available for event handlers in the Document Definition editor.
Adding external assemblies
If a script or a global module is using methods from an external assembly, you can add this external assembly on the .Net References tab of the properties dialog of an object (a batch type, a project or a Document Definition).
