Add more name options to UnderControlBannerTextFormat

David Norelid 8 years ago updated by anonymous 8 years ago 4

RIght now I have the {0} token in my UnderControlBannerTextFormat string (Your computer is being controlled by {0}), but it only uses the username, which in my case is FirstInitialLastName, not very user friendly. Can we get more tokens to use the user's full name or something similar?

I suppose this would require an extension to the security page, adding a full name option to users as well.

Hello David,

If you set SecurityPanel.UserDisplayNameHeaderText to true under the Web Resources in the Administration Appearance page, you can add a display name for your users which will, once saved (you may need to log out/in), appear to be the new name shown in the under control banner.

Let me know if that solves your request.


That's great! Just what I needed.

For others who find this, it's SecurityPanel.UserDisplayNameVisible that needs to be set to true
