Show Message
Solution No. 125
Shows a custom pop up message to your users.
So Where Would We Use It?
The Show Message action is useful when you want to relay information to a user based on an action or entry that they performed. For instance, if the user tried to save a section with a null entry in a required field, the message could read “Please fill in ALL required fields”.
To set the properties for this action, follow these steps:
1. Select Show Message from the Action dropdown list.
2. Type your message in the text field.
3. Select Insert into Message from the dropdown list (Optional). If you choose to not include an insertion in your message, skip to Step 6; otherwise, continue in sequence.
The choices are:
  •  Action Result – sets the condition to a user-defined action result.
  •  Value From Screen – sets the condition to a value pulled from a specific field within the specified screen.
  •  Value From Session – sets the condition to a value that results from the current session information.
4. Specify the option your users will be able to select.
5. Click Insert.
6. Select from the dropdown list how you want the Show Message to be used.
The choices are:
  •  No Decision.
  •  Provide Yes / No option to the user? ("No" will mean no further actions get processed).
  •  Provide Yes / No option to the user? ("Ok" assigns True, “Cancel” assigns False). Assign result name which can be used in subsequent actions.
7. Enter Internal note (Optional).
8. Click Save & Close to save changes and close the action properties window; otherwise, click Cancel to close the window without saving.
