Enable Rate Description Links on IRM.Net
Return to Index

Rate Plan Descriptions

The purpose of Enable Rate Plan Descriptions is to provide the guest more information about the rate in a tooltip on the IRM.Net.

When Enable Rate Description Links is checked on the IRMNet/Configuration Appearance tab, then rate plan labels on the IRMNet reservations pages become hyperlinks (version 2) or tooltips (version 3) for display of rate plan details and conditions.  Rate plan description files are retrieved from the folder: /IRMNet/Custom/.../UserText/RatePlans. The description file name should be the rate plan code (from the Z0 table) with a .htm extension (version 2) or .txt extension (version 3).

IRM.Net version 3 will display the rate plan details as tooltips when the rate link is hovered over.  For version 3, the rate plan details files should contain plain text (no html tags), can be created/modified with notepad and must be saved with the .txt extension.

For example, the description file for the IRML rate plan would be /IRMNet/Custom/.../UserText/RatePlans/IRML.htm. If this file is not found, then the default description file RateDetails.htm (in the same folder) is displayed if it exists.

Some rate plan names may contain non-alphanumeric characters, some of which may be illegal in a file name or URL. In this case, then the non-letter or digit characters are replaced by their ASCII decimal code. For example, if a rate plan code is 10%D, then the corresponding rate plan description file is 1037D.htm or 1037D.txt (37 is the decimal ASCII code for %).  See ASCII to find an ASCII character map.

Steps to Enable Rate Description Links

1. In RDPWin, go to IRM.Net menu -> Configuration -> Appearance tab -> check the "Enable Rate Descriptions Link".


2. Create a file located C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\IRMNet\Custom\RDPDemo\RDP01\UserText\RatePlans folder,  save the description as RACK.txt or 10DC.txt (replace RACK with actual rate plan code) using notepad.

3. Add the description just plain text with no HTML.

4. If the customer has a custom theme and the tooltip box doesn't show up, they will have to add the following code into their 1CommonStyles.css in their custom theme folder:

/* New for IRMNet 3 */
/* tooltip box */
    #dhtml_tooltip{
  background-color:#EEE;
  border:1px solid #000;
  position:absolute;
  display:none;
  z-index:20000;
  padding:5px 5px 5px 10px;
  font-size:1.0em;
  -moz-border-radius:6px; /* Rounded edges in Firefox */
  font-family: "Trebuchet MS", "Lucida Sans Unicode", Arial, sans-serif;
  
 }
 #dhtml_tooltipShadow{
  position:absolute;
  background-color:#555;
  display:none;
  z-index:10000;
  opacity:0.7;
  filter:alpha(opacity=70);
  -khtml-opacity: 0.7;
  -moz-opacity: 0.7;
  -moz-border-radius:6px; /* Rounded edges in Firefox */
 }
 
 /* class for styling tooltips differently than hyperlinks if desired */
 .tooltip
 {
   text-decoration : underline;
   color: #0e317d;
 }
 a.tooltip:link
 {
  text-decoration: underline;
  border-bottom: 1px solid; 
    color : #0e317d;
 }

 a.tooltip:hover
 {
  text-decoration: underline;
  border-bottom: 1px solid;
     color: #0e317d;
     font-weight: normal;
    
 }
