How to play a birthday song after user logged in

Postby Bernd.N » Fri Mar 04, 2016 2:58 pm

I had an idea to play a birthday song after login when a user recentley had birthday. Gary Dotzlaw created the code and I contributed a bit.
On login, when we know who the user is, we call the checkBirthday() function.

The line where the form frm_person_happy_birthday_dlg is called has to be changed. That form displays a nice photo, the user's name and a green button to play the song.
That will then be played with the function
application.playSound("media:///sounds/happyBirthdayFrankSinatra.wav");
Such wav-files can be found in the internet.

The lbl_header will show "Happy birthday, dear Mr.User" in big letters, with i18n of course.

In case someone would like to implement:

Code: Select all
function checkBirthday() {

   var dBirthday      = (_to_person$currentpersonid.ps_birthday) ? scopes.utils.date_clearTime(_to_person$currentpersonid.ps_birthday) : null,
      dLastMsg      = (_to_person$currentpersonid.ps_last_birthday_notice) ? scopes.utils.date_clearTime(_to_person$currentpersonid.ps_last_birthday_notice) : null,
      nAge          = null,
      dToday         = scopes.utils.date_clearTime(new Date()),
      dCurrentBirthday = null;
   
   if (dBirthday) {

      nAge              = scopes.utils.date_getAge(dBirthday);
      dCurrentBirthday    = scopes.svyDateUtils.addYears(dBirthday,nAge);
      
      if ( (dLastMsg == null || dLastMsg != dCurrentBirthday)
         && dToday >= dCurrentBirthday
         && scopes.svyDateUtils.getDateDifference(dCurrentBirthday, dToday).days <= 7) {
         
         forms["frm_person_happy_birthday_dlg"].elements.lbl_header.text = _to_person$currentpersonid.clcs_ps_full_name;
               
         if (dToday === dCurrentBirthday) {
            
            forms["frm_person_happy_birthday_dlg"].elements.lblBirthdayGreeting.text = i18n.getI18NMessage("bob.ps_birthday_greeting");
            
         } else {
            
            forms["frm_person_happy_birthday_dlg"].elements.lblBirthdayGreeting.text = i18n.getI18NMessage("bob.ps_birthday_greeting_late");
         }
         
         _to_person$currentpersonid.ps_last_birthday_notice = dCurrentBirthday;
         
         scopes.ui.DIALOGS.showFormInModalDialog(forms["frm_person_happy_birthday_dlg"], -1, -1, -1, -1, " ", true, false, "dlgHappyBirthday", true);
      }
   }
}

function date_clearTime(dDate){
   
   if (!dDate)   {
      
      scopes.utils.log("Error: No dDate was passed to scopes.utils.date_clearTime(dDate)", LOGGINGLEVEL.ERROR);
      return null;
   }

   try   
   {   
      dDate.setHours(0, 0, 0, 0);
   }
   catch (error)
   {
      scopes.utils.log("Error: No valid date in dDate was passed to scopes.utils.date_clearTime(dDate)", LOGGINGLEVEL.ERROR);
      return null;
   }

   return dDate;
}

function date_getAge(birth) {
   
   var today = new Date();
    var nowyear = today.getFullYear();
    var nowmonth = today.getMonth();
    var nowday = today.getDate();

    var birthyear = birth.getFullYear();
    var birthmonth = birth.getMonth();
    var birthday = birth.getDate();

    var age = nowyear - birthyear;
    var age_month = nowmonth - birthmonth;
    var age_day = nowday - birthday;
   
    if(age_month < 0 || (age_month == 0 && age_day <0)) {
            age = age -1;
    }
    return age;
}
