Javascript: Don't interact with the user -> Question isn't shown but canceled the action

Jun 26, 2012 8:00 AM



In m yJavascript I use a method from a third party plugin. During this method there is an alert, a question. I like to suppress this question.


I use app.scriptPreferences.userInteractionLevel = UserInteractionLevels.NEVER_INTERACT; and then the quesion isn't shown. But the method is canceled with a message like "The user canceled the action!".


Can I do something? Is there a workaround?

    I encountered a similar error, however I wasn't using third party software. In my instance it was because the document had to be converted to a more current version, for whatever reason it wanted me toconvert the document and save it graphically before it would act upon it scriptually.


    Hope that helps.

    Hmmm. I don't know what "never interact" does, internally, but suppose you switched off user interaction and then a script calls "document.close". The three choices in the Save confirmation dialog are "Save:Yes", "Save:No", and "Cancel". Given that, it would be the safest to have it always return "cancel"!


    Since this is a 3rd party plugin, you probably can contact its manufacturor and ask for a workaround, or possibly a modification.
