How to check if SAPbobsCOM.Documents object represents draft?

0 Kudos

Hi folks,

I get the draft invoice in this way:

SAPbobsCOM.Documents oDoc = Company.GetBusinessObject( SAPbobsCOM.BoObjectTypes.oDrafts );
oDoc.GetByKey( docEntry );

Now, I want to check if object oDoc represetns draft or regular document.

After method GetByKey() property DocObjectCodeEx (and DocObjectCode too) return value 13 (and oInvoice).

Hi Prsemyslaw,

By instantiating the object with "Company.GetBusinessObject(SAPbobsCOM.BoObjectTypes.oDrafts)" you are guaranteeing it is a draft. But keep in mind that drafts for all document types are stored under the same table and thus accessible through the same object. That is why DocObjectyCode is returning 13 - because that record is a A/R Invoice draft.

I recommend checking SDK help file, see the sample code for the Document object. See:

- Create Draft Document with Down Payment - Create Order from a Draft Document

Hope this helps,

Hi Vieira, thx for your post. All You wrote is ok but, only if You are "creator" of document object.
In my case I did not created those objects, they have been exposed by external library.
I have array of SAPbobsCOM.Documents without konowledge how this object was created: like draft and then loaded by GetByKey() or like "normal" document.
Now I need to separated drafts from others documents because business logic depends from this fact.
So thats my queston is how to _check_ if the object SAPbobsCOM.Documents represents draft document or not.
