HTML STATUS BAR


P

Paul Austwick

At the top of the RMS POS windows there is a status bar which displays my
company name and 3 bullet points beneath.
What should be display here ? - as even when I have selected an account
customer nothing changes (I was expecting to see the account name and
telephone number of selected customer)

I have searched the forums and found replacement html files but I cannot
download any of the samples for amending the status bar as outlook
newsreader can only back date to articles from March this year.
Also mentioned in past forums it the ability to change the html file used,
but this is missing under configuration - is this because I'm running a
newer version ?

And can I check I'm running the latest release, as I've signed up for the
support option but have no updates so far through the post my version is
1.3.0203 (from store ops about)

Thank you very very much for any help
Kind Regards
Paul

By default it shows the Custom Text values for the selected customer.
If you go into SO Manager, File/Configuration, Captions and enter
captions for the Customer Tab, the captions will also display.

If you want other information displayed in this area, status.htm can be
modified.

Thank you, even after enabling and entering custom text into the customer
records it was still not showing. However when I resized the html status
window it seemed to take affect and is now displaying as I would expect.

How can I obtain or change the status bar to show other information, are the
templates available ?

And would you be kind enough to let me know the current version number as
I'm running 1.3.0203.

Thank you for your help

Paul,

The HTML Status template is stored in the;
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Retail Management System\Store Operations\HTML
folder.

You have it selected in SO Admin | File | Configuration | Register tab

Some status screens have been freely posted here in the past by others and
there are some from add-on vendors, New West Technologies www.newestech.com
and Digital Retail Solutions www.digitalretailer.com are a couple.


Current version is 1.3.1007, but if you are using Customer Statements, stick
with .1005 as they broke them in .1006

Thank you for your help guys I think I understand now how its supposed to
work. Does anyone have any custom html scripts they can post for users, I
ask because the former posts are unavailable for download via outlook as it
will not reach far back enough. If they cannot post them, please send to me
(e-mail address removed) and I will test and attach to this thread for future
users.

Thank you once again for all your help, this is a truly great forum.

Paul,

Here's one that Rob (wonder where he's hiding) a while ago;

Copy and past the code below into Notepad or Frontpage and save it as an ..htm
file.
If you use Notepad be sure to change the File Type to All Files. Or just
piece the code that you need from this example into your file.
I modified this to display the image of the last item added to the
transaction or the currently highlighted item. If the item does not have an
image assigned then it displays a generic 'no image available' pic.

It there a way for me to customize the status bar to show the item picture
after a item is scanned?


Thank you for your help guys I think I understand now how its supposed to
work. Does anyone have any custom html scripts they can post for users, I
ask because the former posts are unavailable for download via outlook as it
will not reach far back enough. If they cannot post them, please send to me

Thanks craig and Jeff for your time posting the samples. However I'm having a small problem, I cannot seem to get them working because I'm getting an error about running active x and it displays blank. I have tried opening the files in ie and the same issues occurs with this error "Your security settings do not allow web sites to use ActiveX controls installed on your computer. This page may not display correctly.

The only way I can overcome this in IE is to share it from a network drive and add the file as a trusted site - however I cannot point MS RMS to any other location than the c:\program files\MS RMS\Store Ops\HTML\status.html.

Please is there any way round this ???
Thanks once again - i'm sure I've missed something !.

Paul, I'm having the same problem with Jeff's, but the one I posted seems to
work fine if you copy into html folder and name it 'Status'. You will have
to rename the original status.
Open POS after your done and it should work. I don't know what's up with the
one Jeff posted, but I can't get it working either.

Thanks craig for that but I'm still seeing a " Your current security
settings prohibit running activeX controls on this page. As a result, the
page may not display correctly. - even on the one you've posted ?

Could the wrong status bar have been attached ?

This has become a real niggle of mine now !.

Thanks everyone for all there help so far.

Paul,

Are you attempting to open it in IE or just the POS program? I get the same when attempting to open in IE, but not in the POS program.

Which one is the problem, I've sent 2.

To change the name or location on your file, SO | Admin | File | Connect | put in your password | File | Configuration | Register tab | Web Status field | put in the path and/or filename you wish. If you can't change this, you need to log into XP using an Administrator password.

I only saw 1 status.html. I don't know about Paul, but it won't work for me

OK thanks guys, I think I've cracked it.

In the end moving the html files to a network share (mapped network drive in
my case) fixed the issues. I think its a new feature of sp2 that doens't
allow some scripting in the html file to run from the local computer. When
you run it from a network share it treats it as coming from a different zone
and therefore runs.

Thanks Glen for the advise where the paths are for various files, I'd been
looking in store ops for ages only to realise that its actually in store ops
ADMIN !!!.
Thanks Craig for your help too, Glenn posted one attachment file and the
other was included in the post as text. (I cannot seem to get the text
version working due to some line wrapping and my lack of html to correct
this !).

I've re-attached the status bars and given them names to make it easier to
download. Descriptions as follows :-

Status (customer account information).zip
============================
* Your Company Name Displayed
* Customers Company Name
* Contact Name
* Address * Telephone
* Balance
* Customer Message
* Available Credit

Status (Total Item Count).zip
====================
* Displays Total Tally of items scanned

Status (Customer Account Information).zip

I'd like to have access to this customer account file if it's still available. I'm trying to show credit available in my RMS POS Status screen, and haven't found the correct variable. I can show credit limit, but not credit available. Is there a place to download this zip file? Thanks!
