System Status Module

The System Status Module keeps run-time users updated with information about their application.

Status Types

The Module displays a StatusMessage has been given a StatusType that has an associated colour.


The colours used for each Status Type can be changed through settting CSS Variables

The 4 Status Types and their associated default colours are:

  • Info (Blue)

  • Success (Green)

  • Warning (Amber)

  • Error (Red)

Displaying System Status Message

A System Status message can be displayed in 5 ways:


In addition, AdapTable will automatically fire the SystemStatusMessageDisplayed Event whenever the System Status message changes


This contains the following methods:

deleteAllSystemStatusMessages()Deletes all System Status messages
fireSystemStatusMessageDisplayedEvent(systemStatusMessageInfo)Fires SystemStatusMessageDisplayed Event
getCurrentSystemStatusMessageInfo()Retrieves current System Status Message
setErrorSystemStatus(statusMessage, furtherInformation)Sets an Error System Status Message
setInfoSystemStatus(statusMessage, furtherInformation)Sets an Info System Status Message
setSuccessSystemStatus(statusMessage, furtherInformation)Sets a Success System Status Message
setSystemStatus(statusMessage, messageType, statusFurtherInformation)Sets a new System Status message; appears in System Status toolbar, tool panel (and popup).

UI Elements

System Status includes the following UI Elements:

  • Popup - Shows the all the System Status messages which have been set, together with a clear button for the most recent one. The message is coloured in line with the Message Type.

  • Toolbar - Same as Popup above.

  • Tool Panel - Same as Toolbar above.

  • Column Menu - Show System Status Column Menu Item opens the System Status popup.

  • Context Menu - Show System Status Context Menu Item opens the System Status popup.


In addition the Status System Module Button in the Dashboard will display with the colour associated with the current Status Type.

UI Entitlements

UI Entitlements behaviour is as expected for Full and Hidden Access Levels.

The ReadOnly Entitlement behaviour is that System Status Messages can be viewed, but the 'Delete' buttons are disabled.


Can I choose where System Status messages are displayed (in the same way as Alerts)?

Yes. The System Status messsage will always display in the Toolbar and ToolPanel but you can additionally provide a Div (via the systemStatusContainer property in Container Options) where it will display.

Alternatively you can subscribe to the SystemStatusMessageDisplayed Event and display messages as and when and where required.
