[EP-tech] Adding user messages from CGI



Thanks for the response Yuri, but I'm trying to add a 'job done' message for the user to see once they have been sent back to their home deposit screen, rather than generate the appropriate HTML to render immediately.

However, as so often seems to happen, I think I've got an answer, assuming the user visiting the cgi is logged in:

my $repo = new EPrints::Session;
my $db = $repo->database;
my $current_user = $repo->current_user();
my $xml_dom_value = $current_user->render_value( "name" );  # render the user name as an example

$db->save_user_message($current_user->get_value( "userid" ),
"message",
 $repo->html_phrase("html_phrase_id", ("pin_name"=>$xml_dom_value)));


I'll try and find somewhere useful on the Wiki to add it.

Cheers,
Alan

from cgi/logout:

$page->appendChild( $session->render_message(
    "message",
    $session->make_text( "Logout OK!" ) ) );

add_message works only in plugins, and it calls $session->render_message anyway.
