Display a message from a Router Script

Hi all,

Ive been playing around with router scripts and Ive successfully managed to get them to make decisions, send emails, log an error etc but I cannot find any way of making the script display a message to the user .

Is there anyway of doing this ? either as a popup window (like the text work instruction) or into the special instuction area of the POD.

We are running visiprise 4.2 and Ive tried several things that I have found in the javadocs but nothing has worked so far :o(

Thanks for any help you can give.

    You can do this by throwing a standard error. In POD maintenance, you can make this appear as a popup (this affects all error messages though) by checking Error Popup on the main tab.

    Throw an error by for example:


    throw new BasicBOBeanException(101, new Data("ERROR", "Some error message"));"

      After re-reading your post, I realized that your running 4.2, not 6.0.....

      The rhinoscript engine can compile javascript, so maybe you can try using some javascript instead.

      I believe I had success with using the javascript "alert" function in 5.2 which might also work for 4.2.

      So maybe try a script containing something like...

      alert("This is a popup message to the operator");

      Note: as Alexander said, scripts are really for next step decision, so maybe be aware of any unintended consequences from using javascript within the router script.
