Adding Messages to Windchill Page's Header

I have a request to somehow post messages to the Windchill community of a future shutdown. I have seen messages displayed on the Windchill pages, my first intuition was to simply edit the Windchill logo image file, however, it would be nice if someone has figured a more dynamic approach.

We use the begin_custom.jspf page to display our messages in windchill.
This file is located under codebase\netmarkets\jsp\util



You need to restart tomcat after clearing the cache for the message to
display. I have attached a sample file here.



Best Regards

Robert,

We use a couple of things for user notification. In the attached files a
couple of things are done:

* The Windchill User name is placed in the Tool Stripe

* Initializes the default Windchill banner from the
begin_custom.jspf file

All of these files get copied under the
<wcinstalldir>\codebase\netmarkets\jsp\util folder.

The begin_custom.jspf file contains the code to put the username on the
tool stripe and has an include for the banner_custom.jspf file.

After putting these files in place, restart your Apache, Tomcat and
MethodServer.

To view the banner (at the top of every Windchill page and this works in
the ProE browser also) copy the banner_backup.txt file into the
banner.txt file and save it. The banner will show up immediately upon a
page refresh. To get rid of the banner, edit the banner.txt file and
delete the contents of it (do not delete the file) and save it.

We have used a dynamic approach of using site level preference to display rolling text for any messages. This way Admins can change the notification or stop notification any point of time without stopping Windchill and can change messages in live system.
