Extender window no longer works after update to GP 2013.

Have an eXtender window linked to the Sales Serial Lot Number Entry window. ┬áThis worked on GP 10 and 2010, however when opening it on GP 2013, receiving a message that says “Not all required fields have been entered for the window XXX”, where XXX is the name of the eXtender window.

This is caused by a change in GP architecture. In previous versions of Microsoft Dynamics GP, the Sales Serial Number Entry window was a scrolling window, which had the Serial Number field available to establish a link. With GP 2013, Microsoft changed the structure of the window and used a “ListView” object and not a scrolling window. The ListView object is a single field that is populated with multiple values via code. The individual fields do not physically exist in the window, thus it is not possible to link to them.

This is not a problem with eXtender, it has never been possible to link to any field contained in a ListView. The problem is caused by Microsoft converting the object from a scrolling window to a ListView.
