Why does my Submit button keep showing?

9 05 2011

Sometimes when developing a new workflow or customizing an existing one, I will be able to submit a record into workflow and it seems to be processed (history shows workitems being created etc), however when the person who needs to approve it trys to access it all he gets is a submit button, no actions, history etc…

This is normally a result of incorrectly implementing your canSubmitToWorkflow method on your form. You need to make sure that this method returns FALSE if the record is being processed and true if it is available for submission.

if (purchReq.Status == PurchReqStatus::Draft) return true;
else return false;

I hope this quickfix helps somebody. The topic recently came up on the ax yahoo group and I’ve reposted in case it is helpful.
