Assembling the Order Tracking System : Progress Advisor
 
Progress Advisor
While assembling the SportsPro Order Tracking System, you receive helpful information and suggestions on creating SmartLinks from the Progress Advisor. SmartLinks provide direct communication pathways between SmartObjects. The Progress Advisor is a dialog box that appears whenever you add a new SmartObject that could potentially serve as a source or target for a SmartLink.
The usefulness of the Progress Advisor’s suggestions depends on the way you plan your application’s development. To make the best use of the Advisor, plan your application around a required workflow and assemble the SmartObjects and other components in a way that reflects the workflow as closely as possible. For more information about SmartLinks and planning an application, see Chapter 4, “Overview of SmartObject Technology.”
