    Hi,

    Using the Token “Groupwise.CategoriesSetDlg” seems to be working
    correct if a message is selected in a folder and called via PopUp-Menu.
    The Categorie-Dialog opens and categories can be set.
    But if used in the Toolbar of an opened mail nothing happens.
    What’s wrong?

    ‘ Samplecode:
    Sub Main(Client, GWEvent)

    Call Groupwise.CategoriesSetDlg

    End Sub

    Using Groupwise 6.5 SP1 (Remote), Formativ 1.6.0.8

    The GroupWise.CategoriesSetDlg method makes a direct call to the native GroupWise token CategoriesSetDlg. Formativ doesn’t perform any additional processing in this case, indicating this is the behavour Novell designed into this call.

    I suspect it doesn’t work when a message is open because, like many native GroupWise commands, it maps directly to a GroupWise menu option. In this case, the standard GroupWise categories option is only available from the message context viewer. There is no menu option display the categories dialog once a message is opened. i.e you need to select the personalize tab, then press the categories button.

    While it is probably working as designed by Novell, it does mean there is no way to programmically display the categories dialog when a message is open. I can make an enhancement request to Novell in this regard. To assist in this regard, how important is having this issue resolved to your application?

    Ok. Thank’s for your reply.
    While GW6.5 have these Categories, most of my Users like
    to use it and set it to all messages (Incoming, Outgoing,
    Tasks, Appointments…).
    If you work this way, it is a “pain” always switch to
    the personalize tab, set the categorie and switch back
    to the mail.
    So I’m looking for an short-cut like <ALT>-C or an
    Toolbar-Icon, but nothing found, and then tried to call
    the Token with Formativ.

    If you do an enhancement request to Novell, I think it’s
    better to request a Short-cut and Toolbar-Icon instead of
    changing the Programming-Interface (Token-API / Object-API).

    Now I have to write my own dialog with Formativ 😉

    Thank you for supplying a detailed wish-list. We will include this in an enhancements request to Novell in the near future.

    For your information: An alternative way to access the Personalize tab, using the keyboard, is to press Ctrl-Tab. This shortcut cycles through the tabs.

    To add to the wise list for raising this with Novell. Over the last week I’ve rolled out the 6.5 client to 30 staff. Already 4 users have request the ablity to access Categories from the message’s pop-up menu.

    While this is more an issue for Novell. It does raise a feature that would be usefull to have within Formativ – a tool set that allows pop-up menu options to be removable as for basic users the popups are getting far to long.

    Thanks for the feedback. We’ll raise these issues with Novell. We are also attending Brainshare next month, which is always a great opportunity to discuss this type of request directly with Novell Engineers.

    With Brainshare coming up shortly, maybe you can also discuss a method of having categories automatically assigned to outgoing or incoming mail based on domain name or email address. For example, if a mail item comes in from novell.com or advansyscorp.com, I’d like it to automatically get the category “IT Mail” assigned to it. This would be easier and more efficient than setting up folders and rules. Thanks.

    We have added your suggestion to our wish list for discussion with Novell at BrainShare.

    Thanks for the additional feedback.
