I am testing a product that requires individual users to set up and authorize a drop box acct for file storage. However, several users have reported issues with the authorization process - the "Finished" & "Cancel" buttons do not display on the last page of the authorization process. After further research, I found that this occurs with computers that provide a default screen resolution of 1366x768 (e.g., levono). I have tried all other screen resolutions on these computers and in each case it seems that the last screen does not size correctly to display the buttons (so the user cannot complete authorization for the drop box acct) - very frustrating because this is the last step in a long set up process. Any ideas on how this issue can be addressed? Thanks in advance.
Thanks for the report! To clarify, are the buttons not visible at all, or are they just below the intial view, and require the use to scroll down? Also, if you can provide a screenshot showing the issue, that would be helpful. Thanks in advance!
Thanks! The page in your screenshot actually appears to be the OAuth 1 app authorization success page, that is, displayed after the user does click "Allow". This page isn't supposed to have any buttons, because there's nothing further the user needs to do there. The URL should be:
This is the point in the process at which the user should return to the app and the API app should call back to /1/oauth/access_token to exchange the request token for an access token.
Ok. Thanks for the response. However, I am a bit confused... some computers display the buttons and some do not. In the cases where they do not the Dropbox acct is not authorized when the user returns to our app (they have to kill the screen via <ALT><F4> to close it)... In the cases where the buttons are displayed, the user clicks 'Finished' and all is good. Here is a screenshot from a computer where the buttons display on that screen:
BTW - I was not able to access the link in your previous response.
I see, the buttons you're referring to are part of that browser control itself, not the Dropbox web site. What library or SDK are you using? The browser control may work differently on different systems.
Also, apologies for the confusion, I was just mentioning the URL of that page for reference. It's part of the app authorization flow as a result of a POST for the app authorization. You can't navigate directly to it.
