at first: Scout is really a great framework!

I would like to implement a "reset password" functionality and therefore add a new button (link button below the password field) in the login screen.
I found a description by Paolo in the forum ( However, I don't think it quite fits to version 22 anymore, as I couldn't find the corresponding files.

Can someone please give me a tip on how to implement the functionality under version 22.

I'm also interested in knowing how to implement this functionality. Has anyone done this already? Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

The login page is also a Scout app, just a very simple one. Here are a few pointer that will hopefully help you to customize the login screen:

  • In the generated Scout project, you will find a file called login.html. This is the page that is shown to the user when they need to log in.
  • The html page is mostly empty, since the content is created dynamically by Scout. You only need to change it if you want to add static content around the login box, e.g. a background image.
  • The application is started by login.js. You'll see that it simply creates a new LoginApp and initalizes it. You could replace the entire app with your own, but this is probably not necessary.
  • What you probably want to replace is the LoginBox widget. This can be done as usual via the Object Factory. The default implementation creates two input fields and a button, but you can change this.
