DriveWorks Live Checklist
Check you have the following in place before specifying a DriveWorks project over the web through DriveWorks Live:
DriveWorks Live and Cookies
DriveWorks Live can run directly as an application or through Internet Information Services (IIS).
If you require your DriveWorks Live site to be customized the topic Web Theme will guide you through doing this, regardless of whichever method for running DriveWorks Live is chosen.
If you intend running DriveWorks Live through IIS please read How To: Configure DriveWorks Live For IIS.
When running DriveWorks Live through IIS selecting the Group to be opened is done in the web.config file, which is explained in the How To: Configure DriveWorks Live For IIS topic.
When running DriveWorks Live as an application you define the Group to be opened and select the Theme to be used through the application.
A Group is opened by one of the following methods:
The Group button activates the Open Group Wizard when clicked. Or it will display a list of recently opened Groups by clicking the drop down arrow on the button.
The topic Live details how to select the Theme to use.
DriveWorks Live can be embedded within your website by using an Inline Frame.
Inline frames are specified within your site by using the <iframe> tag.
The src attribute of the <iframe> tag provides the URL to the DriveWorks Live site to present within the inline frame. See Integration below for more information.
To overcome this your DriveWorks Live site must be a sub domain of your website.
Assistance in setting up your DriveWorks Live site to be a sub domain should be provided by your ISP or IT technician.
Typically when running DriveWorks Live, in an inline frame, the Integration Module is implemented to give seamless integration within your site.
An example of a DriveWorks Live site running within an inline frame and using the Integration Module can be seen at http://www.configuremyproduct.com.
Here the main website has 4 products to choose from, each link to a page that contain the inline frame. The Integration Module has been used in each to automatically run the chosen product.
When the machine is connected to the internet, DriveWorks Today will display dynamic community content containing useful links to information, news and events to do with DriveWorks.
DriveWorks Today also contains a list of your recent groups to make accessing them faster.
The Task Explorer allows browsing between DriveWorks Today, and Live and Specification Explorer in the Specification stage.
An inline frame is used to display a web page within a web page.
DriveWorks Live sites can be displayed within an inline frame on a website by using the <iframe> tag.
