BIS_fnc_showNotification no longer displays text
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When calling BIS_fnc_showNotification, the correct icon is displayed but the text does not show.

This may be a new issue with 0.58 since I am fairly sure it worked before.

I have tested using the templates TaskSucceeded, TaskFailed, TaskCanceled, TaskCreated and TaskAssigned, and the issue occurs in all cases.

Marking as reviewed.

I'm afraid your code is incorrect:
["TaskSucceeded", ["Job done"]] call BIS_fnc_showNotification;

Notification shows the task title as returned by taskDescription command ( However, the title is 2nd param in the returned param, not the 1st.

To mimic this behavior, push your text to the 2nd place:
["TaskSucceeded", ["", "Job done"]] call BIS_fnc_showNotification;

Note: I recommend to use task functions (BIS_fnc_taskCreate and others in 'Tasks' category of the Functions viewer) or task modules which handle notifications automatically.

Mass close.
