Welcome to the Synergy Technical Blog and Technical Knowledge Base – a resource that shares intelligent and creative solutions that have been built and implemented on real-time projects on behalf of Velocity clients.
Velocity IT has developed a revolutionary product called AppSprint for K2 that is disrupting the way we develop K2 Apps. AppSprint uses an ingenious way to quickly generate fully functional K2 Apps by simply uploading an Excel Spreadsheet into K2. It is an essential part of any K2 customer’s tool set. It turns days’ worth of development into seconds!
Please note, before getting started, check-in the SmartForm will used to generate the PDF file for.
To generate a PDF file in K2 for a K2 SmartForm, follow the following steps –
1. Select the OOB SmartObject PDF Converter and execute ‘Create PDF From URL’.
In a previous post we looked at how you can use Azure Blob storage as a file storage location and integrate that with your K2 application. In this post we will be looking at how you can let your application database live in the cloud.
K2 supports custom Service Brokers that allows K2 Developers to connect any data source with a K2 SmartObjects. During the development process, debugging is useful to troubleshoot your service broker’s code. In the blog post we show how you can debug a custom K2 service Broker by adding a break point in Visual Studio and attaching to the K2 HostServer process.
By using the K2 out-of-box worklist App or K2 SmartForm worklist control we generally can’t display K2 data fields and database column values in the K2 worklist, but we can develop a custom worklist to achieve this requirement. This is useful when wanting to display additional context when the user view the K2 worklist.
K2 SmartObjects and K2 Workflows are not limited to only being accessed via K2 SmartForms and Workflows. By using the K2 SmartObject & Workflow API’s you can access SmartObjects and their methods as well as create and start workflows through code.
To access K2 SmartObjects you need to connect to the SmartObject Client Server
