Using message boxes in form activities designed to occur on the server are generally discouraged. In fact this is not allowed in a service unless you explicitly allow it. You may see the following exception occur in the Mi-Forms Server logs when you attempt it: Looking at a typical exception in this scenario we see:

Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.

Exception Info: System.InvalidOperationException


at System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.ShowCore(System.Windows.Forms.IWin32Window, System.String, System.String, System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxButtons, System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxIcon, System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxDefaultButton, System.Windows.Forms.MessageBoxOptions, Boolean)

at Microsoft.VisualBasic.Interaction.MsgBox(System.Object, Microsoft.VisualBasic.MsgBoxStyle, System.Object)

at FormBehavior_321461.FSGetWorkPackagesCompleted(System.Object, FSGetWorkPackagesCompletedEventArgs)

Often the result is that your form will not route to the proper queue correctly. Instead it will land in the _SystemError or _Error queue.

Events to avoid using message boxes include:

AfterDataPathsRun (when e.Scope = DataPathScope.Server)

AfterDataPathRun (when e.DataPath.Scope = DataPathScope.Server)
