Stored procedures
Displays a non-blocking message in a standard dialog box with the answers "Yes", "No", "Cancel" and calls a WLanguage procedure with the user's response.
Confirmation example
Remarks:
  • This is a non-blocking dialog box. The WLanguage code that follows the call to ConfirmAsynchronous continues to run. To close the window, the user must validate one of the buttons. When the user clicks one of the buttons, the code of a WLanguage procedure is run.
  • In the WLanguage code following the call to the function, another modal window cannot be opened before closing the dialog box.
  • WINDEV WINDEV allows you to apply the skin template of your project to this dialog box. See Customizing dialog boxes for more details.
Example
NextTitle("Modifying the form")
ConfirmAsynchronous("Some changes have been made to the form.", ...

ProcessConfirmation(nResponse is int))
 
INTERNAL PROCEDURE ProcessConfirmation(nResponse is int)
SWITCH nResponse
CASE Yes: SaveForm() // Backup process

  • The icon displayed (exclamation mark in a WINDEV application, question mark in a WEBDEV application) cannot be modified.
  • The title of the dialog box corresponds to the title of the current window (or page).
  • To modify or define the title of dialog box, use NextTitle.
WINDEV To customize this dialog box (as well as all system dialog boxes of your application), check "Customize the system windows (Info, YesNo, Confirm, Dialog)" in the "Style" tab of the project description. See Customizing dialog boxes for more details.

Line break in the dialog box

The CR string (Carriage Return) can be used to force a break to the next line. For example:
ConfirmAsynchronous("The XXX form was modified." + CR + ...
"Do you want to save it before closing?", Procedure_ConfirmAsynchronous)
You also have the ability to use the syntax of multiline strings. For example:
ConfirmAsynchronous(
[
The XXX form has been modified.
 
Do you want to save changes before closing?
], Procedure_ConfirmAsynchronous)

Miscellaneous

  • WINDEV Windows events are not stopped when this function is called.
  • WINDEV DelayBeforeClosing is used to limit the display duration of the message. The dialog box is automatically closed. For question or confirmation dialog boxes, the default button corresponds to the expected answer.
  • The text of the buttons is displayed in the system language.
