Hi, As Bluecielo are now preferring the Power Web client, it would be extremely useful/necessary to provide some means of message box to alert users / get acceptance when running script functions or events in the Web Client.
Agree, and some enhancements are on the roadmap. The issue here is that it's difficult to generate UI in the browser in response to a script function running on the server. Please give me examples of situation where you want to use a message or input box from script so I can make sure our planned enhancements will meet the needs.
As we move customers to away for Power User client, we need method to confirm user acceptance when running a command or to check they are OK with something or possibly give them information on the message of the details of the transaction about to be completed.
I know it's difficult but when do you think this might be available?
We have some options to show messages after an operation is finished using "Batch.details".
We also have options to show message before some operations with wizard pages.
What other scenarios would you like to cover?
We are asking the user, on the first startup in the vault open event with an inputbox for the user initials.
@Frank: would it not be more logical to add an input box for that in the user preferences?
@Brendan: do you only need informational messages, or do you also need to get decisions from the user during event processing?
Yes, Rudi you are right we are using an input box there.
And in addition we also use MSG Boxes for decisions like YES/NO/...
*** to Rudi: i just read "Inputbox". Yes this is perhaps an option as long we can force the user to add his initials.
I would say that we need both informational message boxes and input/responses from the users during event processing.
Totally agree with Brendan. I cannot add any command to my vault. When adding a command my property pages are gone. Also the input boxes and message boxes are not available. Bummer!!!
