New function: Search customers by partial name

On very popular demand, it is now possible to search for customers by name using wildcards.

This is available through the Debtor.FindByPartialName() - http//wwwe-conomiccom/apidocs/Documentation/M_Economic_Api_IDebtorUtil_FindByPartialNamehtml method, which allows you to include asterisks (*) as wildcards.

Why didn't we just allow wildcards in the existing Debtor.FindByName() - http//wwwe-conomiccom/apidocs/Documentation/M_Economic_Api_IDebtorUtil_FindByNamehtml method?, you might ask? Simple: We are very, very committed to avoiding breaking changes to the API as much as possible - and this would obviously constitute a breaking change, since searching for * would then previously have returned any debtor(s) whose name was exactly *, but now, it would instead return all debtors...

As always, you can pick up the latest developer toolkit - including an updated .NET assembly - right here - http//wwwe-conomiccouk/integration/integration-partner/. You can also read the full documentation online here - http//wwwe-conomiccom/apidocs/Documentation/indexhtml.

When are you going to make a better php documentation?

Hi there,

We do not really have a php specific documentation, and are not in the near future planning to do anything special about that.

In general we do plan to have more examples available for multiple languages, but exactly when and how much is hard to say.

With that being said we do have an updated php example which also works on php servers running in strict mode. This will be available soon.
