Siebel Advisor API Reference > Utility Functions for Siebel Advisor >
Use the ShowAbout function to open a separate window and display the information contained in the \ui\about.htm file. The About information commonly contains the application version number, legal notices, and company contact information.
- The information that appears when the ShowAbout function is called must be located in an HTML file called about.htm, and this file must be located in the application ui subdirectory.
- When you create a new project, Advisor automatically generates an about.htm file in the application ui subdirectory. Edit this file to contain information appropriate for your own application.
- The configuration variable APP_ABOUT_WIN_ARGS in the Application Configuration file (\custom\app_config.js) defines the attributes of the About window, including size, whether a status bar and scroll bars appear, and whether the window is resizable.
The following sample code creates a link to the About window using a link surrounding a button image called btn_abt.gif.
<IMG src="btn_abt.gif" alt="Information about CDA(tm)" height=14 width=57 border=0 hspace=0 vspace=0 align=top> </A>
