  • The maximum number of characters cannot exceed 4096. If a larger string is passed in parameter, it will be truncated.
  • 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).
    AndroidiPhone/iPad To comply with the system specifications, the title of dialog box is empty by default. To define this title, use NextTitle.
  • 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:
Confirm("The XXX form was modified." + CR + ...
"Do you want to save it before exiting?")
is equivalent to:
Confirm("The XXX form was modified.", ...
"Do you want to save it before exiting?")
You also have the ability to use the syntax of multiline strings. For example:
Confirm(
[
The XXX form has been modified.
 
Do you want to save changes before closing?
])

Versions 25 and later
Android

Application in the background: Android 10 specific case

From Android 10, it is no longer possible to open a window when the application is in the background.
Confirm can open a window. If this function is used while the application is in the background, a fatal error will occur.
Tips:
  • It is possible to determine if the application is in the background using InBackgroundMode.
  • If an application needs to interact with the user while it is in the background, the solution is to display a notification (via the Notification type). When the notification is clicked on, the application will be brought back to the foreground if ..ActivateApplication is set to True. It is also possible to open a window from the procedure passed to ..ActionClick.
