Customizing The Validation Response Page

For Validation Actions, the validate.aspx page is called when the validation URL is accessed. This page uses the validate.css file located in the \Program Files\ThinkAutomationV4\WebServices folder.


You can edit the validate.css file to customize the appearance of the Validation Response page.


Customizing Strings

Located in the \Program Files\ThinkAutomationV4\WebServices\Strings folder is the file en.xml


This XML file contains the default entries for each of the strings used in the validation response:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>



Use this file to change the default text strings used by the validate page.

You can create a separate XML file for each language. Save the file using the 2 digit language code as the file name (eg, fr.xml).

Any string that is blank or not specified will use the default value.




 <PageTitle>ThinkAutomation Validate Message</PageTitle>

 <PageHeader>Validate ThinkAutomation Message</PageHeader>


 <ButtonNotAccept>Do Not Accept</ButtonNotAccept>

 <ResponseAccepted>Validation complete. Thank you for validating the message. You accepted the message.</ResponseAccepted>

 <ResponseNotAccepted>Validation complete. Thank you for validating the message. You did not accept the message.</ResponseNotAccepted>

 <TestResponse>Validation Response Page Test Successful</TestResponse>

 <InputInvalid>The data that you have entered is not valid.</InputInvalid>

 <InputInvalidEmail>The Email Address you have entered is not valid.</InputInvalidEmail>

 <InputInvalidOption>Please select a value.</InputInvlidOption>

 <InputInvalidRange>The data must be in the range {minvalue} to {maxvalue}</InputInvalidRange>



You can edit this file in a text editor to adjust any of the text strings. The PageTitle, PageHeader, ButtonAccept, ButtonNotAccept,ResponseAccepted & ResponseNotAccepted strings can be set on the Validation action itself. The values in the strings file are used only as defaults if no specific value is specified on the Validation Action properties.


Different Languages

You can also save the file for different languages using the 2 digit language code as the file name (eg, fr.xml for French). The language used will be automatically read from the browser settings of the user viewing the validation page.
