ILINX Capture Custom Weblookup

This example demonstrates how to use a .Net Web Service WebLookup in the ILINX Capture Client.  The sample C# project can be downloaded at http://downloads.ilinxcapture.com/samples/ilinxweblookupsample.zip. You will need to create an ILINX Document Type with at least the following three fields.

  • Client Account Number
  • Document Type
  • Sub Type

This example only returns the following XML String to ILINX Capture to populate the 3 index values.  The XML string is in the same format that was provided to us from the ProcessXML Function parameter IndexXML.  The Value node of the XML is the index data that is then populated in the web client.  This data can be manipulated in many ways before returning to the calling ILINX Capture Web Client.

<ILINX><IndexList><Index><Name>Client Account Number</Name><Label>Client Account Number</Label><ReadOnly>0</ReadOnly><Visible>1</Visible><Value>Client Account Number</Value></Index><Index><Name>Document Type</Name><Label>Document Type</Label><ReadOnly>0</ReadOnly><Visible>1</Visible><Value>Document Type</Value></Index><Index><Name>Sub Type</Name><Label>Sub Type</Label><ReadOnly>0</ReadOnly><Visible>1</Visible><Value>Sub Type</Value></Index></IndexList></ILINX> 

To use the web service it must be published to an IIS Web Server.  Once published to the web server you must access the web service and generate a WSDL file.

1.       Navigate to the new Web Service ASMX file, for example: http://lptbryan/ilinxweblookupsample/ilinxweblookupsample.asmx?wsdl

2.       Save this file to the C:inetpubILINXQXServices or equivalent in your environment as the filename.WSDL, for example ilinxweblookupsample.WSDL

3.       Open the newly created file with a text editor like notepad and modify the ProcessXMLResponse section.  Chagne ProcessXMLResult to Result.

Original WSDL File

Modified WSDL File

 

4.       Navigate to the section <wsdl:service name=”Service1″> and change the address location for both port name=”Service1Soap” and port name=”Service1Soap12” to use the DNS or load balanced name of your server if applicable.

 

5.       Add the Web Service WSDL file name to the ILINX Capture Index of choice.

 

6.       Your new web service should now be ready to use.

7.       Log into the ILINX Capture Client and tab out of the Index that was just configured to use a Web Service Lookup.
