Today the EnvironmentBean does only allow a message Box to display an Abort Message.
I request to have also the possibility to create an Info Message while storing a change to an item.
This would give the possibility to inform a user that he for eg. shall pay attention to something before his next working step.
I agree, we need to be able to guide and help users in a proactive fashion.
This may not be possible in the current client-server architecture but must be made possible in the next iteration of the user interface.
Even better would be the possibility to provide an option box which would include buttons and inputs determined by the server script. Or just to supply a warning message with the options to either abort or continue the edit.
One possible "work around" that works is to use the "signature required" methods on the server bean to display a message to the user. It then lets the containing script get confirmation from the user by getting a signature and clicking OK or allowing the user to click Cancel and abort the script. In the case where the trigger script is about to perform a destructive action, the signature might make sense. Unfortunately, in most cases the requirement of a signature makes this impractical.
