Module nummerieren

For each entity created in the application, Dolibarr assigns a reference. In order to adapt the reference to any use, Dolibarr use modules to define the rule of generation of this reference. Several modules are supplied with application. Some are generic and are used to define the mask numbering (number on x characters, with or without prefix, including the date or not, etc.), which can meet most needs. However, there are still cases where the modules provided does not meet the need. In this case it is necessary to develop its own numbering module.

For more information, see on page Create numeration module

More documentation about document generation from models is available on page Create a PDF document template or Create an ODT document template

There is a lot of internal libraries your code can use. You may find a lot of generic functions into files functions.lib.php or functions2.lib.php or admin.lib.php. But any function found into htdocs/core/lib/*.lib files can be used.

To make a condition on Dolibarr version

For example, to make a condition on Dolibarr > 3.5, you can use versioncompare and versiondolibarrarray found into admin.lib.php
