Posted on 402 views

If ArchestrA script execution is not completed or cancelled within the WindowViewer default time of 5 sec, WindowViewer writes timeout messages automatically:

SITUATION

  1. Create an ArchestrA Symbol.

  2. Add a Test script in the Symbol script to consume more time than the WindowViewer default time (5 sec).

  3. Create a Manged InTouch application and import the test symbol.

ACTION

The time out warning message fires when a script does not complete execution within the default WindowViewer timeout period.

To avoid this message we can increase the script time to be more than script execution time:

  1. In WindowMaker on the Special menu, click Configuration/Windowviewer. The WindowViewer Properties dialog box appears.
  2. Click the Managed Application tab if the InTouch application is managed, or Modern Application if the InTouch is modern.

  3. In the Script timeout box modify a timeout value in milliseconds to be more than time execution time. For this example type 60000. Valid values are from 1 to 360000.
  4. Click OK.
  5. The warring Timeout message disppears.
