Dear JDE list members,

I have an issue which needs to be solved.I hope you could help me out.

As soon as a form is intialised,i want to issue a warning message(Like say for example,'Please Check costs')which should be disaplyed in the status bar.

Is it possible.If so,then how should i go about it.

Waiting eagerly for the answers.

Thanks and with regards,

Create a DD Error Item with the Description you want. In the Form Dialog is Initialized event use the system fn Set Status Bar Text and give the data item you created. It should work.

Use DD to set the message in OneWorld is the fundamental way to do it but sometimes user may overlook that little yellow warning.

You can create and call a simple pop-up window to remind the users. Either way you need to modify the form.
