Custom Approval Container Issue

Jun 20, 2010 5:19 AM

I am creating a Custom Approval container.


The requirement is as simple as having several process related fields at the bottom of the TaskForm container.


I tried to modified the Flex source (as mentioned in the documentation) and it just works. However, the three tabs (Task Details, Form and Attachments) are not shown.


Is this the default behavior? Is it possible to show them in the Custom Approval container?


Thanks for any advise,

    Hi Nith,


    The Approval Container was coded that way in the example by using the hideAllContainerView() method.  You can either remove that call or you can  add UI widgets like a button to make calls to the SwfConnector object  to display or hide the views you want using the following methods:

    - showTaskDetailsView

    - hideTaskDetailsView

    - showAttachmentsView

    - hideAttachmentsView

    - showFormView

    - hideFormView


    See the SwfConnector page for more details: procmgmt/formbridge/SwfConnector.html.


    Hope that helps!

    Hi Nith,

    You need to bind it to the setWorkspaceData event and of course remove the hideAllContainersView() function.


    Try making the call in a function that is bound to the setWorkspaceData event handler. It works for me:



    public function returnWorkspaceSession(event:SwfDataEvent):void

    lcConnector.task = event.task;

    //Configure the form to be displayed in the model component.
    var fullname:String;
    var instructions:String;
    instructions = lcConnector.task.instructions;
    fullname = lcConnector.getAuthenticatedUser().displayName;
    personalMessage.text = 'Hi ' + fullname + '. ' + instructions;



    <!-- Establish communication with LiveCycle Workspace ES2 -->
    <lc:SwfConnector id="lcConnector"



    Hope that helps!

    Hi All


    I am trying to customize the ApprovalContainer to show the attachment view as you discussed, I add the line showAttachmentView() but it didn't work for me still no attachment view.


    Also I cannot find  hideAllContainersView() function to remove if it is the cause ???


    Any help??

    Hey Nith,

    How did you fix the form area issue? When I click on the other tabs, the form area is still enabled.
