Why Printing or Posting Events Does Not Work with Message Box Option

Release: 04/06/2022
Version: 8.5 & Up

Q - I set up a msg box event to pop-up when buyers enter an EDI PO. The event setup is shown below. I just found out that it’s not working. It looked okay to me. Can you see why it’s not working?

A - Message box won’t work in this case. This particular event is inside a printing/posting routine. Elliott does not allow triggering a message box in a printing/posting routine. There are many reasons. One of them is we can’t support message box in deferred processing. Just imagine how we would handle the popup of a message box in deferred processing.
