Earlier today I posted about creating a DateTime Picker in SugarCRM. A second problem I had was creating an auto increment field. This turned out to be slightly more difficult than the datetime picker. Again you need to edit your
vardefs.php but this time you add the following to your field.
'auto_increment' => true,
You then need to manually alter the table structure so the
id field is a unique index instead of a primary key then add your new column to the database as an
auto_increment field and the tables primary key. I also found that if you try to install the module on another system it will fail because it can’t create the table properly. You can solve that by creating the table then installing the module.
