    Problem:

    You have created some iLogic rules, but running them with a right click ‘Run Rule’ is cumbersome and you’d like to be able to run a rule with a single click. Is this possible?

     

    Solution:

    Yes indeed it is nice and simple. Here’s my handy iLogic rule for reminding me of my name and employer on my return from summer holidays:

     

    MessageBox.Show("You are " & ThisApplication.UserName() & vbLf & "You work for " & _

    iProperties.Value("Summary", "Company"), "Handy Info",MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Information)

    I can add this rule as a button by heading over to the ‘Forms’ tab, right clicking and hitting ‘Edit’

    Then I can pick the rule(s) in question and drag it/them to the right to add them as a button. I can also add an image and a tooltip to the button if required.

    I’ve chosen a suitable image

    Then I can run this rule with one click from the ‘Forms’ tab – and be prepared for any demanding questions.
