Through ARC there is a RAINMAN feature available designed to make it easier for you to manage your online RAINMAN content areas.

You have the option of having AOL automatically display the "external IDs" of RAINMAN objects while you are online. (External IDs are the names you give your objects when you create them via RAINMAN.) Viewing external IDs is also known as "View Rights."

What is the benefit to me?

"View Rights" will allow you to easily track the external IDs that you need for your RAINMAN scripts. Instead of having to write down your IDs, you can now have them displayed on your forms as you navigate through your area on AOL.

What is "View Rights"?

"View Rights" is the ability to see the RAINMAN external IDs for all of the RAINMAN objects on AOL. The RAINMAN group number and external ID of each object will appear in the title bar of the window or in the listbox of a collection.

Note that even though you will be able to see all RAINMAN object IDs, you will only be able to modify objects in groups for which you already have RAINMAN publishing rights.

How do I get "View Rights" turned on for me?

You can request to have View Rights turned on or off for a screen name via a Form Driven Mail request form. This request form is available from keyword ARC > Tools > RAINMAN Plus.

What else do I need to know?

Things to keep in mind:

  • You may request to have the right turned on or off via the same form.
  • We will only turn View Rights on for screen names which already have RAINMAN publishing rights.
  • Please allow 7-10 business days for the right to be turned on or off.

With View Rights the external IDs are displayed at the far left of your Window title and listbox titles. This "pushes" the display of the actual title to the right. This is a display issue only for screen names with View Rights.

View Rights does not change the title of any Window or listbox link, but in some cases, for a screen name with view rights, the titles will be pushed to the right and will appear to be cut off. Since this may be an inconvenience for you, please consider this issue before requesting View Rights for your screen name.
