How can I notify the web screen, using a Balloon_Info ?

How can I notify the web screen, using a Balloon_Info ?

  

Hello

I'm trying to do the same as the Popup does, by notifying the web screen/web block above, but using the widget Popup_InfoBalloon. Anyone knows?

I'm using Outsystems 8.


Hi Pedro,

Inside the screen associated with the info balloon you can use a Notify action to notify the parent. This action is available on System actions.

I can't use the action NotifyWidget inside an action, associated with the info balloon. I thinks it's because the screen has a layout of a popup.

Hi Pedro,

Sorry you are right the notify widget is to be used on webblocks, not screens.

Just to better understand your case why do you need to use a InfoBalloon instead of a popup editor?

Hi Ana,

It's a UX team choice.


Hi Pedro,

The purpose of the popup_InfoBalloon is mainly to show additional information when you mouse over a element of your page. When we need to do some action that will notify the parent screen we usually use Popup_Editor instead. I don't think there is an easy way to notify a parent screen from a popup_infoballon. I would try to work around the situation and understand why do they choose to use the infoballon instead of popup_editor. If it is a layout issue or the on mouse over functionality you may work around that in different ways instead of using the info_balloon. 

An other option may be to do your custom info_balloon instead of using the one from richwidgets.
