    I have an appplet that is triggered at the on send event of a task. I am using groupwise 6.5 with service pack 2. When I go into my calendar and select the tasks view and then right click on the calendar, I get 2 options , New Task and New Posted Task. When you select new task and send it, the applet is triggered correctly. But if you select New Posted Task and then Post it, the applet should not be triggered, but it is!
    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Adnan

    This is working as designed. The send event will trigger for posted tasks, notes and appointments in GroupWise 6.5.2. (From memory the event didn’t work in earlier versions of the GroupWise client – this was considered a bug).

    As there is no ‘On Post’ event, triggering the On send event is logical when some post-processing needs to be performed when an item is initially created. The event does not trigger when subsquent updates are applied to the same item and it is re-posted.

    I’m using this code as a workaround:

    Set Msg = GroupWise.ComposingItem
    if (Msg.ClassName = “GW.MESSAGE.TASK”) then
    if (Msg.BoxType = 3) then
    ‘ msgbox (“posted task”)
    exit sub
    end if
    end if

    Thanks for the hint regarding posted item identification.

    You state above “As there is no ‘On Post’ event, triggering the On send event is logical when some post-processing needs to be performed when an item is initially created. The event does not trigger when subsquent updates are applied to the same item and it is re-posted.”

    Somewhat opposite of what Adnan is looking to do above, we would like an applet to trigger on All On Send events. If we compose and e-mail and click Send then the On Send event is triggered. If we Reply to an e-mail and click Send then the On Send event is not triggered. Similarly, if we Forward an e-mail and click Send then the On Send event is not triggered.

    How can we trigger an applet on Sending a Reply or e-mail Forward? Thanks.

    Unfortunately you’ll need to upgrade your GroupWise client to get the events you mention to work. Up until quite recently the GroupWise client contained a bug whereby the send event would not be triggered if you replied or forwarded a message using the advanced reply/forward functions, then sent the item. Novell rectified this issue recently, but I can’t recall the exact build number the fix was contained in. I am using 6.5.2B and the send event is triggered under the circumstances you mention. A search on Novell’s support site should assist.

    I hope this helps.
