I’m trying to display a WebDialog on all connected sessions at once.
I have a dictionary in App that holds the connected users Identifier and Remote Address.
In App I have a method that should execute another method that is on a WebPage(wp_Admin in this case) for all active sessions.
If I do this
Dim i as Integer
For i = 0 to activeSessions.Count-1
App.SessionWithIdentifier(activeSessions.Key(i), activeSessions.Value(activeSessions.Key(i))).wp_Admin.globalMsgDialog(logLevel, message)
and there are two connected sessions. The WebDialog gets displayed on one session only. Not once, but as many times as there are sessions in the Dictionary.
If I instead change the WebDialog to a simple MsgBox…it works.
I’m getting something wrong aren’t I?
Create a method
Session.globalMsgDialog(logLevel as integer, message as string):
dim sc as new WebSessionContext(me)
I suspect that your code in wp_Admin.globalMsgDialog needs the right Session on the stack.
Thank you Brad. It made no difference though
In the LR there’s an example that does something similar. It changes the currentpage on all sessions.
Could it be modified to display my WebDialog for all Sessions?
// Loop through all sessions and have them display a new
For i As Integer = 0 To App.SessionCount - 1
// Without creating a WebSessionContext here, creating
// the page would fail triggering a SessionNotAvailableException.
Dim context As New WebSessionContext(App.SessionAtIndex(i))
// Because we have a context, we can create a new
// ExceptionPage and assign it to the session.
context.Session.CurrentPage = New ExceptionPage
This works: context.Session.MsgBox(message)
This does not: context.Session.displayDialog(message) <- displayDialog is a method in Session that creates a new WebDialog and displays it.
I’m on 2013r3.3
As pointed out here: https://forum.xojo.com/3541-solved-need-assistance-with-websessioncontext
The WebDialog can’t be created in code. It needs to be dragged to the WebPage and then displayed.
Thanks again Brad for taking the time help out!
