Change the name of 'Continue Workflow Action' Button

Hello,

 

I want to change the name Continue Workflow action button in this step. Is it possible ? If this is possible, how can I change it ?

Hi Bugra,

As far as I know, all buttons' texts written in text files like bla bla.TXT because of supporting language selection. If you find it with a simple text search I think you could find it.

Re: Change the name of 'Continue Workflow Action' Button

Hi Radim,
I found this KEXP_Resources.properties file in this location.

D:\ppm_test\server\HP_PPM_TEST\deploy\itg.war\WEB-INF\resources\wb

and i changed red colored text to completed, but nothing changed. So, I restarted server to recheck but nothing changed again.

In addition to that, Same button is available different languages. English and Turkish but i guess it is only for english version. Anyway, the solution does not work for me both english and turkish versions. Maybe, I have to change different keys to work properly, but i don't know which keys will be changed.

note : ~I use PPM 9.1~

This would be a time when you should try stopping PPM, deleting the contents of the work and tmp directories for all nodes and restarting PPM. The old value may just be in these files.

Re: Change the name of 'Continue Workflow Action' Button

Hi,
some aditional information:

 

The modified KEXP_Resources.properties copy in knta_classes.jar package located in

D:\ppm_test\server\HP_PPM_TEST\deploy\itg.war\WEB-INF\lib

 

then delete all files in this location:

D:\ppm_test\server\HP_PPM_TEST\tmp
D:\ppm_test\server\HP_PPM_TEST\work

 

and run kJSPCompiler.sh

 

Perhaps it will help

Hi,

 

How did you manage to create "Continue Workflow Action" ?

I know that some default ppm workflows such as PFM - Proposal has it. But I could not manage to create a new one for another workflow. When request process is proceeding, it does not go to "RequestUpdate.jsp" (where "Continue Workflow Action" is displayed) after "RequestDetails.jsp".

 

Thanks

This button is on the page that prompts the user for values of fields required for the step that is being transitioned to.

Re: Change the name of 'Continue Workflow Action' Button

Hello Jim,

 

I know but what I am asking is how to display it between worflow steps. i.e. after a user clicks submit button, another screen will show up and lets him/her to choose a resource from a drop down list. And then user will click "Continue Workflow Action".

 

Thanks

Hello Again,

 

I found KEXP_Resources_tr.properties in D:\ppm_test\deploy\LP\tr\db\resources and KEXP_Resources_tr.properties is not in the knta_classes.jar package.

 

I tried other steps to change name but it didnot work. It works fine for english but when the language change to turkish then it didnot work. How can I do this for Turkish language.

 

then delete all files in this location:

D:\ppm_test\server\HP_PPM_TEST\tmp
D:\ppm_test\server\HP_PPM_TEST\work

 

and run kJSPCompiler.sh

 

Perhaps it will help

 

 

Thanks.
