2 Custom Buttons to start 2 different Datafeeds

Collaborator III

Hi all,

I have an issue with 2 custom buttons for 2 datafeeds. When they start in the same section they mess up and always the 2nd start.

I attach the code datafeed1.txt & datafeed2.txt - which i cannot find any differences - any idea?

@AlexandrosKras, see how this works.

Try putting this at the very bottom of the layout:


     #dbrn-btn-generate {
          background-color: transparent;
          margin: 1% 0% 1% 7%;
          font-family: Tahoma;font-size:12px;        
          padding:10px 10px 10px 36px;
          position: fixed;
          top: 0;
          left: 0;
          height: 1em;
          width: 100%;
          background-color: #e9ffd9;
          z-index: 999;

<script type="text/javascript">
     var NOTIFICATIONdatafeedGUID = '8F4CE42D-9BB0-4E6B-B72C-60A2CE64505E';
     var ASSESSMENTdatafeedGUID = '931CEA7B-411C-437E-A8F3-AF30CE965B72';
     var baseURL = 'https://.../RSAarcher';     // Build the base URL from address bar

     Sys.Application.add_load( function() {

          if (sessionStorage.getItem("type")=='dbrn') {
               document.getElementById("dbrnalertMsg").style.display = "block";
               setTimeout( function(){document.getElementById("dbrnalertMsg").style.display = "none";}, 10000);
          } else if (sessionStorage.getItem("type")=='dbra') {
               document.getElementById("dbraalertMsg").style.display = "block";
               setTimeout( function(){document.getElementById("dbraalertMsg").style.display = "none";}, 10000);

     function executedatafeed(feedGUID,type){ 
          var restAPICall = {"DataFeedGuid":feedGUID, "IsReferenceFeedsIncluded":true};
               type: "POST",
               url: baseURL+'/api/core/datafeed/execution',
               headers: {
                    'x-csrf-token': (window.sessionStorage) ? window.sessionStorage.getItem("x-csrf-token") : csrfToken = parent.parent.ArcherApp.globals['xCsrfToken']
               data: JSON.stringify(restAPICall),
               contentType: 'application/json',
               processData: false,
               dataType: 'json',
               success: function() {       
                    sessionStorage.setItem("type", type);
               error: function() {alert("An unexpected error has occurred in the system. Please try your request again. If problems persist, please contact your system administrator")}

Then put your buttons where you need it.

<div id="dbrn-toolbar-app-buttons">
     <a id="dbrn-btn-capture" href="javascript&colon;void(0);" data-check-dirty="false">
         <div id="dbrn-btn-generate" class="tb-btn" data-icon="&#xE08F" data-icon-pos="left" onclick="executedatafeed(NOTIFICATIONdatafeedGUID, 'dbrn');">COPY NOTIFICATION FORM FIELDS TO ASSESSMENT</div>
<div id="dbrnalertMsg" style="display:none"><span>SUCCESS: </span>Fields copy process has started successful. Please refresh or recalculate the record.</div>


<div id="dbra-toolbar-app-buttons">
     <a id="dbra-btn-capture" href="javascript&colon;void(0);" data-check-dirty="false">
         <div id="dbra-btn-generate" class="tb-btn" data-icon="&#xE08F" data-icon-pos="left" onclick="executedatafeed(ASSESSMENTdatafeedGUID, 'dbra');">COPY ASSESSMENT FORM FIELDS TO REGISTER</div>
<div id="dbraalertMsg" style="display:none"><span>SUCCESS: </span>Fields copy process has started successful. Please refresh or recalculate the record.</div>

Hi there-

I fixed it

It did show for the one feed.

Had to add another section for the second feed success message. at the style customobject.
