Busy Indicator Script not working
I want to show Busy indicator icon in Repeat grid when one of the columns is being updated. I do not want user to perform any operation until the post events are completed for this field. So, I included the following script in the userworkform
pega.u.d.busyIndInterval = 0;
pega.u.d.busyIndInterval = 2000;
I also invoked the script from the section. Pls see attachments.
However the busy indicator is not triggering at all. The user is able to update other columns while the post events are still running. Can you pls help?
I added wait step in activity and noticed that busy indicator is displayed. The busy indicator is actually displayed even without the script with wait step of 10 seconds in activity.
I added alert step in the script and confirmed that the script is actually running but it is not showing the busy indicator (unless wait is added in the activity). Is something wrong with this script (Pega 7.2.1)?
I basically want the UI to show the busy indicator when refresh is happening In the post event so that user cannot change any other data in the screen. The user is typing data while refresh is happening and so the data being entered is lost after refresh is complete
you have configured a run script to remove the busy indicator icon after refresh-section and post value.
These action might be happening so fast that the busy indicator display script and hide script are getting called within fraction of seconds. This might be the the reason why you are not able to see the busy indicator.
Yes Vikas. The user is doing copy-paste in the repeat grid. Since pega allows this action when refresh is happening, it just wipes out the pasted items after refresh is completed.
I am looking for options not to allow any user input (copy-paste or type any data) when refresh section is happening in the back end. Even though it is split seconds, it causes loss of data. Can pega freeze the screen while refresh is happening and not allow any kind of user input (Technically we are running an activity during refresh and so some db processing needs to happen and it is not just refresh screen)?
