Setting ListIndentLevel

Post by Nrhoades » Thu Nov 12, 2020 11:46 am

Hi,

I'm currently trying to set the field "ListIndentLevel"
I've tried doing this a couple different ways, such as:

exception.SetProperty("ListIndentLevel", commitmentException.IndentLevel);

and

exception["ListIndentLevel"] = commitmentException.IndentLevel;

When doing this I keep getting hit with a "Cannot access member" exception. How do I set this?

Thanks!

ListIndentLevel is a readonly property to indicate the current level of indentation.

It appears the typical way to change the level of indentation is by passing a new phrase into IncreaseIndent() or DecreaseIndent(). Also adding a child phrase to an existing phrase will increase the level of indent.

Thank you for the swift response Bob. Would you be able to show a quick example of passing a new phrase into IncreaseIndent() or DecreaseIndent()?

I'm glad you spoke up for an example. I was leading you down a long hole. The best way to create lists of Exceptions, Requirements, and Subordinate Matters is demonstrated below.
  • In this example, I navigate down to a previously created loan policy and get the Exceptions list.
  • Next I create an Exception object, initialize its properties then add it to the list of exceptions.
  • Then I create a second exception and set the Code property to one that exists in a lookup code. All we have to do is set the Code and the remainder is set from lookup table information.
  • The final exception is where I create a child. All that means is it will be indented a single level under its parent. I add the new exception to the Phrases collection of the existing exception that is to be the parent.
  • The final step is to save the order changes.

Code: Select all

// IOrderItem title = (IOrderItem)order.GetProperty("Title");
IOrderItem tic = (IOrderItem)((IList)title.GetProperty("TitleInsuranceCalculations"))[0];
IOrderItem lp = (IOrderItem)tic.GetProperty("LoanPolicy");
IList exceptions = (IList)lp.GetProperty("Exceptions");

// Set both Code, Text and Comment properties.
IOrderItem ex = order.CreateNew("Exception");
ex["Code"] = "PE1";
ex["Text"] = "Policy exception 1";
ex["Comment"] = "Policy exception 1 comment";
exceptions.Add(ex);

// Only need to set Code since it is in lookup table and Text will be filled in automatically.
ex = order.CreateNew("Exception");
ex["Code"] = "A100";
exceptions.Add(ex);

// Make next one child (indented) by adding it to parent Phrases collection.
IOrderItem child = order.CreateNew("Exception");
child["Code"] = "A105";
((IList)ex["Phrases"]).Add(child);

IOrderStore os = (IOrderStore)order.GetService(typeof(IOrderStore));
os.ApplyChanges(order);

The hardest part to remember is that all of these types of objects (Exception, Requirement, EndorsementException, EndorsementRequirement, and Subordinate Matters) have a Phrases collection. Add the the Phases to create children (a.k.a. indent to the right).

That makes a lot of sense. I think Ill be able to utilize this to implement my solution. Thanks for the fast and detailed responses!
