How do I get MessageManager to behave within modal windows?

Is there a separate message manager used for windows that are embedded within iviews?

I call this method


within windows invoked by the following call

IWDWindowInfo windowInfo = wdComponentAPI.getComponentInfo().findInWindows("Blah");

IWDWindow newWin = wdThis.wdGetAPI().getComponent().getWindowManager().createWindow(windowInfo, true);;

I notice that any and all exceptions and messages get reported on the messageManager of the parent view, not the window I want. This is more noticeable in sp6 than sp4 due to the new ui.

    Have you given a try by specifying a message area in the embedded component window.

    Haven't tried this ..Thinks logical to display the message in the new window..

      Hi Stefan,

      my solution would be to create an interface IWDViewMessageManager (same parameters, plus a method View.getViewMessageManager() ) and maybe declare the IWDMessageManager as obsolete. Now <u>that</u> would keep it simple.

      Greetings, Walter

    Hi Stefan and Sam,

    You guys rock!

    I got this to work correctly by setting the messageArea of the first window to WDVisibility.NONE. All errors now appear in the second window's Message Area.

    I still think the default behaviour is strange in the SAP implementation. I would assume that if the first explicitively created message area ( inside the window view ) would get all the messages, rather than the MessageArea created automatically by SAP.
