Support Request: Pop up screen

Description

Hi - we need a function where we can push a pop up screen in front of the SiteKiosk in case of an error or lost communication from a locally installed program, and it seems like this is adressed in this thread: http://www.provisio.com/en-US//helpconsole/SiteKiosk%20Object%20Model%20Help/en-US/default.htm?index.htm

However we are using the Chrome browser, so we probably need the basic information which is mentioned can be obtained by contacting support.

Can you help with further information?

Hello,

I would advise using an external script for this where you detect the event with any other script or method and then use the SiteKiosk Object Model to create a top most HTML dialog in SiteKiosk.

Here 2 examples you can use as basis:
1 creates a Popup when a certain registry entry is written (in the example via SiteRemote):

2. An example that creates a terms of use overlay (2. Overlay method (for SiteKiosk Windows only)):

In the external script you still must use the IE based Object Model.

Only when using Object Model script in a web page with Chrome Browser skin you need to use the new object model.
If still necessary please contact us via e-mail (support-europe(at)provisio.com) to receive a basic documentation.
