How can you Add Prompt Buttons when no + present

Post by Dino » 15 May 2019, 08:40

If the + symbol is not present to the right of the input field, the autogui rule cant create a prompt button next to it.

but if we could make a rule, that for all "input target fields", which "right output field" contains "Department Code", "Section Code", etc...(long list i know), then, CREATE a prompt button to right of the input target.

but the current rule only replaces + for a prompt button....

any idea?

Hi Dino!

We already have an extension that can do this.
Create a rule to identify your input and select Multitype Input box in Apply As.
Then change the prompter property of the extension to true.
HTH.

Thanks!

Pius

That sounds great, but i cannot find the Prompter or similar property in Multitype Input, either using AutoGui or manually adding Multitype Input Box extension to a field in the screen, with aXes 4.1.1 .... is this something coming in a next version?

Hi Dino!

Sorry that I forgot to mention that this new property will be available on the next release of aXes.

Thanks!
