[VLF WIN] How to show the status message into the status bar on the framework?

Post by Taku Izumi » Wed Apr 04, 2018 7:28 pm

Hi,

How to show the status message into the status bar on the VLF Windows?

I execute the "MESSAGE MSGTXT('Processing'') TYPE(*STATUS)" code in the framework, but the status message is not shown the status bar.

Regards,
Taku Izumi

This is for VL-Windows ................
I think status messages are only for 5250 screens.
If you use just MESSAGE MSGTXT('Processing'') then it should appear on the status bar.
If not, try using USE CLR_MESSAGES to get rid of whats already there - and also to clear your processing message when complete.
If your MESSAGE command is in (nested) methods consider the implications of using Options(*RECEIVES_MESSAGES *RETURNS_MESSAGES) on the method stack. You MESSAGE may need to flow up the stack to the UI layer.

Hi Mark,

I was able to show the status message.

If the framework is executed using RenderType W, the status message is shown into the status bar.

Thanks,
Taku Izumi

It should also work with RenderType M (Mixed).
If it does not then it should be reported to LANSA support.
