Trying to build a Connector profile that does a search and returns the results in the Laserfiche client. The profile works as anticipated except that it opens a new instance of the Laserfiche client each time it runs. My expectation is that it would recognize that there is a Laserfiche client instance open and use that instance to display the search results. Researched the help file and the available custom attributes in the xsd configuration schema but do not see a switch to tell Connector to use the open instance of the Laserfiche client to display search results. Is this the expected behavior or is it possible to configure Connector to use the open Laserfiche client to display search results?
I have a couple clients that have been requesting the same result. I even presented it to a developer at Empower and I was hoping this request would be addresses but nothing as of yet. My issue is also when the search result has One result and opens the document automatically and this every time you Launch a search with Connector you get two screens open.
Hi Cliff and Jerry,
Which version is Laserfiche Windows Client? I tried in Laserfiche Connector 10.3 with Laserfiche Window Client 10.4.2.247, Connector uses the existing Laserfiche Windows Client if it opens with the user that is used in LF Connector's profile, instead of opening a new instance of Laserfiche Windows client. Also, you can add "ShowInNewWindow" attribute and set its value as "false" in profile.
<StepDef type="OpenLFClient"> <Attributes> <Attribute name="ShowInNewWindow" value="false" /> </Attributes> <Elements /> </StepDef>
