Is there a way to put a message in all QV applications?

Is there a way to display a message in all QV applications? Without individually changing each application? We need to alert all users of almost all of our applications, when they open them. We can't do it on the Access Point because some users access app through their own bookmarks. We are already sending emails but we all get so much email, it may not be read. Does anyone know of a way to do this, perhaps through QV server or management console?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Is there a way to put a message in all QV applications?

you can keep your message in a file or table and then load that table in all of your QV apps.

You can write a subroutine to have it loaded so that in all apps all you need to write is a simple include or load statement.

Whenever the app gets reloaded the latest message that is present in the file or table would be visible. Anytime you change the message you do not need to change the app.

Hi,

This is a possibility but could I make the message pop up via the load script? There are so many apps, I do not want to do this manually.

thanks

what is the source of this Messages. Is it generated from some other system? or Manual into a file.

EDIT:

You might want to consider an extensions object that could show message which would be dynamic but to implement any solution you might need to touch all your app only once.

If the message is at a global level then you might consider reviewing the Access Point asp page. I know that you can even customize the access point page.

It will be only one message, the same for all apps. We know that not all users go through the Access Point to apps because they save their own bookmarks to them, then use the bookmark, not the Access Point.
