Bookmark sharing and "Force Prompts on Startup" option

Hi all,

I notice a strange behaviour in my application running with DS 1.3 SP 01; working with Chrome Version 36 and launching the app from the BI Launchpad on BO server:

The application has the option "Force Prompts on Startup" set to TRUE.

When I share a saved bookmark, then a popup opens with the URL and the hyperlink "Open Link". So far, so good... Once I click on the link "Open Link" a new Chrome tab is openend and the application is loaded in the correct navigation state and with the correct variable values - but without showing the initial prompts screen!

If I then do any interaction, e. g. clicking a button, the initial prompts screen is showing up and the variables are filled with the (correct) values from the saved bookmark !? Well, I could confirm that prompts screen with "OK" and then it disappears and the script action from the button is executed correctly.

But... I would assume, that either:

a) the prompts screen is shown directly after opening the link (like it is the case if you perform the "Load Bookmark" operation)

OR

b) not shown at all

Do you notice a similar behaviour in your application or can you explain, why this happens?

Regards,

Philipp

Hello,

I found the solution:

The problem was with a commented coding in the onVariableInitialization() !

It seems, that once you have any lines of code (no matter if commented or not) in the onVariableInitialization(), the described problem occurs.

Now, after I have fully deleted the onVariableInitialization(), the prompt screen is shown directly after opening the bookmark link (as I would have expected because of the "Force Prompt on Startup" setting set to TRUE).

Regards,

Philipp
