So explain where you would see your notification?
In the Window title?
You could have a timer trigger that runs every 5 minutes and checks a notification table, if there is an unacknowledged notifcation, then you could change the Window title of the formas app to show a (1) at then end of it.
Would that do, or do you need more?
So explain where you would see your notification?I just mention, Leave module, there are many other module. For example In Purchase Purchase Requigition , Production Module Production Complite , Delivery Module Delivery Ready.
For this it will better to show at respective Menu.
In the Window title?Another good Idea !
You could have a timer trigger that runs every 5 minutes and checks a notification table, if there is an unacknowledged notifcation, then you could change the Window title of the formas app to show a (1) at then end of it.Timer has a bad this.. For example, if i make a timer and run every 5 min. then if user works on a form, timer will hide the form and show the timer window.
Isn't it ?
Would that do, or do you need more?Yea.. More..It will be like facebook. If any notified work is done by any person, light will go off.
Thanks for your interest and suggestion...

You could create a table like
and use that as notification table. Then insert a record each time you want to send a notification. In the starting-form of your application, build a block on that table and show all relevant notifications.
SENDER, RECIPIENT, MESSAGE
I'm a fan of your replies..
on replied of Tony's suggestion i have something more as i have more module and notification message is different and for different group members. Is ther any other way to show without table based block ? like as facebook ?
Sorry, i'm not at facebook, so i don't know how notifications work there. If you want something "modern", so might consider writing a javabean which somehow "pops-up" a small window showing the notifications. But still you have to find a specific time when to check for new notifications. This could be done in some trigger which already exists in all your modules (and best if there is some central pll-routine used in that triggers). This maybe could be WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE, WHEN-NEW-BLOCK-INSTANCE, KEY-EXEQRY
If you upgrade to Forms 11, you can take advantage of the new External Events feature and leverage Advanced Queuing. Refer to the New Features doc for v11.1.1
This could potentially give you exactly what you described. If I queue a message, like "requesting leave", that message would be received by all that have subscribed (as determined by the application code) to the event. In other words, when you make the request, my running application will respond to your request.
Hey may be u can't send the notification the same way face book does but u can send a notification onto the apps page of the user and what all u need is to whom this person is applying for the leave say u can get that any way because the person's manager is the obvious choice for sending the application
So when the manager logs into his/her apps page he will see the notifications that he has got.
Thanks for your reply. I never try to write java beens. So, you said i need timer by any means.
Thaks for your reply and link. I have no way to upgrade :( do you have any experiance of it ?
What is the way. any concept ?
