By Sudarshan Karkada

This tip comes from Sudarshan Karkada's website.

The code below shows how to popup a message box on a group of currently logged on users' monitor. Primarily, the code demonstrates the following techniques:

  • How to get a list of all the currently logged on users
  • How to popup an instant message on a user's monitor
  • How to get a specific user's details
  • Usage of 'POPUP_GET_VALUES' function module to get data from user without having to write GUI code
