    Pop up window in Expedition

    michael.kuczynski

      I havn't had a chance to research/look into this yet, but while the thought is in my head.

       

      Is there a way to have a customized pop up window message appear when Expedition is opened? (sort of llike the "Tip of the Dasy")

       

      I have some reminders I'd like to convey to my group when designs are opened.

          Hello Michael,

           

          I think what you intend to do should work with the following approach:

           

          1. Write your VBS program that pops up your message
          2. Call your program by adding a line with the scripts path in the scripts.ini.
            It will run on every open document event.

           

          Problems:

          after every Formard annotation, the document is opened, so the call will run.

           

           

          To make it more professional do it like this:

          • write vbs that creates an environment variable to toggle if script has run already / today
          • If popup has to appear, you can trigger this by an application event function looking for "OnOpenDocument" event
          • your framework VBS has to be called from scripts.ini.

           

          Kind regards,

          Andreas
