Symptom

How to create a pop up window in Xcelsius.

Environment

  • Xcelsius 2008
  • Dashboard Design 4.0

Resolution

    1. Launch Xcelsius.

    2. Open the dashboard in which you want to add a pop up window.

    3. Take a Background component on the canvas and make its size equal to the size of canvas so that it hides all other components on the dashboard.

    4. Go to the properties window of the Background component, set its transparency approximately to 20% and select ‘Block Mouse Events’.

    5. Now take a Panel Container and place it above the Background component.

    6. Take Input Text and Push Button component on the Panel Container.

    7. Go to the properties window of the Push Button component and change its Label to OK.

    8. Under the properties window of the Input Text component, navigate to General -> data Insertion, check ‘Insert Data On Load’ and map Destination with Excel cell.

    9. Set Dynamic Visibility for the Background component and Panel Container so that they will be visible initially when we open the dashboard.

    10. With the Push Button component implement a logic which will change the Dynamic Visibility status for the Background component and Panel Container and hide them.

    11. Preview the dashboard, enter some value in the Input Text component and click the OK Push Button.

    12. Notice that the value that we entered in the Input Text component gets inserted into the Excel cell that we mentioned in the step 8. We can pass this value to prompt.
