Redwood BPA 9 --> issue with job chain step --> right click options

Hi All,

We have recently upgraded from CPS 8 to BPA 9.0. Which browsers are best suitable to run the BPA . As of now, we are using mozilla 34, but during job chain implementation we are not able to see right click options(copy, paste etc..).

So I am interested to know, which browser with version has all the BPA features similar to CPS.

Thanks

Srikanth

    Hi Srikanth,

    Since SAP BPA "overrides" the browser context menu and JavaScript cannot have access to your clipboard, it is impossible to have copy-paste support in the context-menu ... without an applet (ActiveX/Java) of some sort.

    You can select the text with your mouse and use Ctrl+c and Ctrl+v ...

    As for browsers, you might consider requesting RedwoodExplorer via OSS, it's a client for SAP BPA for Windows, based on Firefox.

    Regards,

    HP

      Hi Srikanth,

      Indeed. Basically, in version 8, the chain editor was a Java applet, now it is no longer an applet, it uses HTML 5 canvas framework ... which also means that older browsers are no longer supported and that some options have been removed from the context menus in the editor. I think it is simply not possible to have copy/paste in a custom context menu built using JavaScript, I remember that from the days when I wrote HTML/JavaScript ... long time ago.

      Regards,
