Pulsating Save button in drawer taskbar

Martin_BlomgrenMartin_Blomgren Customer Ninja IT Monkey ✭✭✭✭
One complaint I hear from end users is that the location of the save button is not intuitive and is very easy to miss.

To solve this I made a small custom solution where the save button, on all  pages where present, is highlighted in a subtle way by pulsating.

I've attached the files needed in a zip archive. To install just drop the files in CustomSpace (merge custom.js if you have other stuff there already!)

    Very nice, as always.

    Very nice @Martin_Blomgren Thank you so much for sharing your code and idea.
    It's a great way to draw the eye to what is required.

    Maybe you should raise this as a feature request to be included in the base product. (I know I'd vote for it)

    +1. Another great idea!

    Not having any luck getting this working -- we are also on v7.1.

    We've even tried implementing it with no custom.css or anything else in custom.js... still no luck.

    We love this idea so hoping we can get it working -- anyone else having any difficulty?

    As an IT professional in a small organization you have to wear many hats :)

    Could it be a caching problem, have you tried open a new in-private/incognito window? Are there any error messages in the console if you open up developer tools (F12)? Which browsers have you tested with?

    Looks like both Firefox and IE reporting a syntax error on this line:

    sheet.insertRule(selector + "{" + keyFrame.join('') + "}", sheet.cssRules.length);

    You are correct there is a problem in all browsers but Chrome. This was a quick hack and I should probably have tested it in all browsers before being so quick to upload (probably why I've only done backend earlier :)) .

    However it's easily fixed by escaping the @ sign in the keyframes! Escaped the % sign just to be sure as it's commonly used for encoding strings.
    addKeyframes("\@keyframes pulsate", {<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;"0\%": { "background-color": pulseColor, "color": "#fff" },<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;"50\%": { "background-color": "transparent", "color": "#33909a" },<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;"100\%": { "background-color": pulseColor, "color": "#fff" }<br>});

    Or download the fixed version attached, tested with IE11, Chrome 55, Firefix 45 and Edge (text is flickering, seems as others having this problem with animations as well).

    Anyone having this working in Edge? It works fine in IE and Chrome... (I'm using version 0.2)
    Current Portal Version:
    Management Pack Version: 7.7.2016.185 

    Edited: It works buts flickers instead of fading in and out as in Chrome and IE

    I ended up deleting the text color changing so only the background changes. 

    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; addKeyframes("\@keyframes pulsate", {<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; "0\%": { "background-color": pulseColor},<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; "50\%": { "background-color": "transparent"},<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; "100\%": { "background-color": pulseColor}<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; });

    Hi all, during some testing of some changes we were making to the portal layout, it was pointed out to me that the save button was not immediately obvious, so I stumbled across this script. 

    Thank you, Martin.

    I thought it would be good to also make the 'Next' button in Advanced request Offerings pulse too and only pulse the save button when the next button is deactivated, so I've updated the script (attached).

    It is quite possible (probable) that there is a more elegant way to do this. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears.

    Hopefully someone will find this useful.
