    Currently working towards rolling out our custom ASP.net CRM system. I’m really happy with the way it turned out, our system makes quoting/ordering easier and more user friendly than in any other CRM system I’ve seen.

    We can plug AJAX auto completes into any data streamlining the user interface and allowing for rapid product querying and quoting. It also uses custom integration tools that we’ve developed to synchronize data with outlook.

    Using Ironspeed to develop a CRM system 

    Currently we are developing a CRM system using Ironspeed for a customer. The system we are developing has a lot of cool features, such as using AJAX autocompletes that populate several related fields on the form automatically whenever an option is selected. One of the difficulties we ran into was populating results into additional fields that are in an embedded table control.

    For a field on the main form you can use a simple javascript statement to apply the result value from the stored procedure to another element after the autocomplete item is selected. Since the ID of the design element is always there and doesn’t change you can write something like this:

    $get(‘<%# ProductDescription.ClientID %>’).value = results[0];

    In the table controls, however, you can’t use this statement because the elements are different for each row, and they are created on the fly. So we need to use getElementById, the problem with this is that the IDs for each row are slightly different and they change as more rows are added. We were able to get around this issue by taking the value of the autocomplete ID  in javascript and just replacing the unique value from this ID with the unique value of the ID we needed to populate, this way we know that we are applying the results to elements in the correct row (each element in the row has a number unique to that row baked into the ID).

    It can be accomplished with a simple function like this:

    function OnProductSelected(source, eventArgs)


    var results = eventArgs.get_value();

    var product = source.get_id();

    product = product.replace(“ProductAutoComplete”, “ProductDescription”);

    document.getElementById(product).value = results;


    In this example the autocomplete element is called “ProductAutoComplete” and the results we are getting from the stored procedure needs to be placed into the “ProductDescription” field.

    Recently had a project to move an old notes database to a read only ASP application. Using our custom Talend component to pull data from notes along with Ironspeed (the rapid development software for ASP) we were able to quickly and easily pull the data from notes and create an ASP application that allowed the customer to find all the old data they needed.

    With these tools, this is a process that can be replicated quite easily.

      I’m new to Iron Speed and have been searching for a way to migrate notes to ASP. Do you have a quick ‘how to’ video or specs doc you can share? Feel free to email me, yip_juan@yahoo.com. Thanks!

        I don’t have any specific materials like that but I can tell you that to get started you just need to be able to get the data out of notes into something like SQL server. We use our own in house tools to accomplish that but any method is fine. You will need enough knowledge of notes to keep the referential integrity and rebuild the relationships in the new database. Given that notes isn’t inherently relational, you will need to use unique IDs, REF values for response documents, or built in key values(it will all depend on how the notes application was designed).

        Once you have the data exactly the way you want it with the relationships perfect, ironspeed can build the basic application for you easily, the rest is custom ASP code and UI tweaks to make the functionality mimic notes (in my case above, I was making a read only app for archive purposes, but anything is possible), there is some very helpful ironspeed documentation on how to get started with new applications on their website.

        Hope that helps!
