T190 Course - Problems when adding Custom Field - Step 2.1 - Duplicate field useRepairItem in Visual Studio Build

  • 1 December 2021

When attempting to Build the Project (page 24 of T190_QuickStartInCustomization), Visual Studio generates an error from file InventoryItemExtensions.cs:

“The type ‘InventoryItemExt’ already contains a definition for ‘usrRepairItem’

When I installed Acumatica for this course, I was prompted, when loading the data, which course I wanted to load. The T190 course was not listed as an option, so I selected the T280 course.

I suspect this is related to the error. I assume the usrRepairItem custom field already exists in the data version that I loaded. 

If the T190 course data is not available as an option, which version should I load?

Hi @rdennisj57 

I’ve reviewed the T190 code.  It seems the InventoryItemExt graph name used in Step 2.1,  Step 2.3  and Step 2.5.

usrRepairItem field defined in one place. but the Graph name is duplicated.

Can you please rename files and use? Or combine the files code in one file.
