How to Create a Custom Lookup Button

You can create preset, static lookups on the Lookup page by using an anchor and making a function call directly to the WiredContact application. An example would be-

<a href="wceweb.dll?function=lookup&lu1=25&search1='Wired'&dyn=y"><IMG src="button.gif"></a>

When the user hit the button a lookup would be created with all contacts where Company started with Wired. Use the following parameters for this custom lookup-

actweb.dll?function=lookup Makes the call to the WiredContact application and states the function- lookup in this case.

lu1=n Where n= the field name to be queried.

search1='string' Where string= the value to be queried for.

dyn=y Is needed at the end for the application to process the request.

You may create a lookup based on multiple fields by using additional lu and search parameters. For instance, to find all ID/Status=Customer and Company=Wired use-

<a href="wceweb.dll?function=lookup&lu1=25&search1='Wired'&lu2=34&search2='customer'&dyn=y"><IMG src="button.gif"></a>
