Macro Exec Plugin

Click here to download

MacroExecPlugin allows you to execute Macro Actions and Epass services from Field Triggers via Advanced Coding.

Advanced coding is very limited to just a few loan functions like fields and a few standard functions like MsgBox. You cannot call Macro functions from Field Trigger advanced code same way you would inside an Input Form event handler. MacroExecPlugin solves this limitation via a global plugin that monitors changes to [CX.MACRO.ACTION] and [CX.MACRO.SIGNATURE] fields and then calling Macro.ExeciAction() and Macro.ExecSignature() functions.

In case when your field trigger often occurs in the middle of a loan recalculation or a chain of field updates, optional parameter [CX.MACRO.DELAYMS] can be set to delay execution by a number of milliseconds enough for calculations to finish.

Following is an example how MacroExecPlugin can be used to popup MI dialog "mipff" action inside a field trigger for LTV:

If you need to test or debug when MacroExecPlugin executes, you can use standard Encompass Debug registry flag HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Ellie Mae\Encompass\"Debug"="1". A log file will be created in C:\Users\USERID\AppData\LocalLow\Apps\Ellie Mae\xIHR5EqGa7zPnRG0YpD5z4TPAB0=\EncompassData\Settings\Logs\

An Admin Test form is provided for your convinience. You can test each Action / Signature and you can open the log file directly from this form. Screenshot below:

You can find the list of standard actions in Appendix B of Encompass360 Input Form Builder User’s Guide.
