Add more name options to UnderControlBannerTextFormat

David Norelid 7 years ago updated by anonymous 7 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?

Available in Version:

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
