Make Default DocAction Configurable for Generate Shipments Manual and Generate Invoices Manual

Description

Add two new System Configurator entries that drive the default option for DocAction in the Generate Shipments Manual and Generate Invoices Manual forms.

Currently, these forms default the DocAction to Complete. Users often forget to switch the action to Prepare. When a user forget, he/she must now void the newly created document, and re-create it with a DocAction of Prepare.

Currently, if you want Shipments or Invoices to get Prepared (Not Completed) by default, you need to modify the core code to make "Prepare" the default action.

By adding the System Configurator options, a user no longer needs to modify the code.

Thanks,
Chuck Boecking

Ah, I thought you were refering to the corresponding processes, not the forms.

BTW, there is a new option on generate shipments for <None> action.

In principle agree with your suggestion about sysconfig for the forms - but wondering if it would be worthy to convert these forms to the new Info Invoice structure - that will make these two window really configurable.

i submit week before this issue
https://idempiere.atlassian.net/browse/IDEMPIERE-1788

the same requirement. but i suggest to use it by value preference. the reason: after a time the system config should including tens or hundreds of records.
